This course is aimed at students who have or are soon to complete, a suitable HND from a college in Scotland. It's a 4-year route into teaching and comprises two years of study for an HND, followed by two years of study at the University of Strathclyde. You have direct entry into Year 3 of the BSc (Hons) in Education and Curricular Studies with Teaching Qualification.


Teaching is a wonderful career.  Employment prospects are excellent due to a shortage of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) teachers in these subjects, and teachers recently received a 13.5% pay increase. 

Our unique Education and Curricular Studies with Teaching Qualification course at the University of Strathclyde offers a pathway from an HND to an honours degree with a teaching qualification, opening up a career opportunity not available until now.


  • There is currently a shortage of Secondary school teachers for both Home Economics and Technological Education. There are opportunities for employment throughout Scotland and beyond.
  • The Teacher Induction Scheme provides guaranteed employment for one school year following graduation, should graduates be eligible and decide to accept a place on this scheme. Although most of our graduates go on to teach in Scottish state schools, obtaining this qualification opens up opportunities to teach throughout the UK or internationally.
