PGCE and School Direct (non-salaried)
The UK Government is now offering bursaries for UK and EU students enrolled on Initial Teacher Training courses.
The amount you are entitled to will depend on the classification of the undergraduate degree you hold and the subject your PGCE focuses on.
If you are continuing to postgraduate study directly after studying at undergraduate level with us, we offer a reduction in fees depending on the classification of degree you achieve.
If you are graduating from an undergraduate degree at York St John University this year you could be entitled to:
- a 50% reduction in course fees if you achieve a 1st
- a 35% reduction if you achieve a 2:1
- a 20% reduction if you achieve a 2:2
All York St John University alumni are eligible for a 10% reduction on their postgraduate course fees regardless of when you graduated. The 10% alumni discount will not be added on top of progression scholarships.
These reductions apply to all York and London-based taught MA, MBA, MSc and MRes courses, except for Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) MSc, Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) MSc and all PCGE courses.
