Details of the admission process for our undergraduate degrees.
Admission to most undergraduate degrees at Moray House School of Education, in common with the rest of the University of Edinburgh, is via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
The PGDE admission system is operated by the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR), and other undergraduate and initial training programmes can be entered by direct application to the Undergrauate Admissions Office. Admission to study for an initial teaching qualification has some specific requirements.
