Moray House School of Education and Sport

Primary Education (MA Hons)

There are still a number of ways to study to become a teacher at Moray House though we no longer offer four of our Primary Education 'with' subject degree programmes.

Initial Teacher Education at Undergraduate level

At Moray House, we offer two specialist initial teacher education undergraduate programmes:

MA (Hons) Primary Education with Gaelic 

MA (Hons) Physical Education


In line with demand for postgraduate level Initial Teacher Education, from September 2018, we ceased to offer the following degree programmes:

  • MA Hons Primary Education with History
  • MA Hons Primary Education with Mathematics
  • MA Hons Primary Education with Religious Studies
  • MA Hons Primary Education with Scottish Studies

This will not affect students currently studying on the MA Primary Education ‘with’ suite of programmes. The final intake for these programmes was September 2017.

Initial Teacher Education at Postgraduate level

For those who have completed undergraduate degrees and wish to become teachers, we offer a one-year Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) for Primary or Secondary Education, as well as a two-year MSc in Transformative Learning and Teaching which allows you to teach across the transition.

Potential new programme: Primary Education with British Sign Language

We are looking at developing an on-campus undergraduate programme in Primary Education with British Sign Language (BSL). The programme would be aimed at students fluent in BSL who are keen to pursue a career as a primary school teacher. The programme would be suitable for those with a keen interest in BSL as a school subject for all, and/or teaching deaf children. If you are interested in this programme, please complete our survey. Your feedback will help shape the content and structure of this new degree, and there is an opportunity to leave your contact details so we can keep you up to date on any developments.
