Are you passionate about languages? Looking for a varied and stimulating career working with young people?

Posted on 22 August 2014

If you answered yes to both those questions, then it’s not too late to join the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Secondary PGCE course at University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD)’s Townhill campus in Swansea, which starts in early September.

You may be eligible for a bursary of up to £15,000, depending on your degree subject and classification.

Today’s MFL teachers have the opportunity to be part of exciting changes to improve literacy across languages, enabling young people to interact globally and increase their employability.

Katie Roberts, one of UWTSD’s 2014 MFL graduates, said: “My subject tutor has been extremely supportive and gone above and beyond her job description to help us. The mentors were amazing and offered invaluable advice and guidance. It [the PGCE] is a lot of hard work but very rewarding. If you are motivated by the profession, at the end you will succeed.”

UWTSD recruits students with:

  • French
  • French with German 
  • French with Spanish
  • German with French
  • Spanish with French 
  • French with Italian

The entry requirements for UWTSD’s PGCE Secondary programme are: a good degree classification of 2.2 or better in a relevant subject; at least a B grade (or equivalent) in GCSE Maths and English; and a C grade in GCSE Welsh if you wish to teach through the medium of Welsh.

Places are also available on a number of other PGCE Secondary courses at UWTSD, including Design & Technology, Computing & ICT, and Welsh.

You can apply for a PGCE course through the teacher training section on UCAS. For more information about UWTSD’s teacher training courses, please email
