Modern Language Studies Graduates

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by soozieE, Nov 21, 2011.

  1. Hello All I have started to make tentative enquiries with training providers about a PGCE in French with Italian as a second language. At a ?Teacher Taster? event earlier this year I asked a course administrator if I would be considered for the French specialism with my degree in Modern Language Studies. I?ve worked out that of the 360 credits awarded, 140 were in French, 140 in Italian and 80 in another subject. He said that generally they expect you to have a degree of which 50% the credits were awarded in the primary language and so I may need to gain some more credits in French. I'm trying to get some clarification on this from the university but in the meantime I've identified a 60 credit (FHEQ level 6) course at the Open University (Mises au Point). Did any have you had any issues in starting a PGCE course with your Modern Languages Degrees and did you 'boost' your credits with any other courses? Thanks for any advice Soozie

    Same here. I actually did a 2 year PGCE designed for graduates who had fluent language but their degree was not in that language. At the time, only 4 unis offered the course, I did mine at Reading. Don't know if anyone offers it now? Worth a google I expect.

    Good luck
