Fees and funding

The 2017/18 fees for the PGDE at The University of Sheffield are £9,250 for home student teachers, and £16,000 for overseas students. This fee applies for both the standard route and for School Direct. A high proportion of student teachers are eligible for a bursary which will cover some or all of this cost and living expenses. The bursary is paid in installments throughout the year and therefore it will not be possible to use this to pay fees up front.

As this course leads to a professional qualification, student teachers will be required to undertake a DBS Enhanced Disclosure and Work Health Assessment. All Student teachers will also be required to complete Safeguarding training. The cost for these will be £71 and payable via the University's Online Shop. Student teachers who have already paid for a previous DBS Enhanced Disclosure and signed up to the DBS update service will need to pay the reduced cost of £27 via the University's Online Shop. These fees also include the cost of a learning journal which will be provided at the start of the course.
