About the Primary Education Studies (Non QTS Accelerated Degree) (Hons) course at University of Huddersfield

This course offers an accelerated route to completing an undergraduate degree in two years and gaining the requirements needed to apply for a postgraduate teacher training course.

Why Primary Education Studies?

  • The course will help you develop your knowledge of primary and early years education, as well as the essential skills you’ll need to progress towards becoming a teacher in primary and early years education.
  • The course has been designed to support students in preparation for employment in the primary education sector, but the course content also reflects the skills and knowledge useful to those wishing to work in education-related roles, such as school management, social work, health and social care, and counselling and mentoring.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in a primary education setting. As part of your placements you’ll be able to observe experienced teachers and gain practical, hands-on experience in contributing to classroom practice.

Becoming a primary school teacher

Completion of this course does not result in a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), a requirement for becoming a primary school teacher. However, following successful completion of the course, Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) can be achieved through completion of a postgraduate teacher training course (such as a Primary Education PGCE).


If you aspire to work with children and young people in a primary school setting, this course will help you develop the professional knowledge and skills you need. To gain qualified teacher status (QTS) to become a primary school teacher, you will need to complete a PGCE qualification after completing this accelerated degree. This course also equips you to consider non-teaching roles in education and other areas of the children’s workforce.
