1st in Scotland for Education (The Times Good University Guide, 2010)
Stirling is distinctive among Scottish universities in offering concurrent programmes to prospective secondary school teachers. These degree programmes enable you to gain a degree in Professional Education with an appropriate teaching subject (or subjects) for secondary in four years, rather than the traditional five.
These qualifications are recognised throughout the UK and the world. Successfully completing the programme enables you to provisionally register in the appropriate sector with the General Teaching Council for Scotland and enter the probationary scheme.
