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.

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 £70 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 £26 via the University's Online Shop.
