Course info


If you would like to graduate with a second level teacher qualification to teach two science subjects then the BSc Science (with Education) is for you.

BScEd students graduate after four years with a Level 8 BSc Science (with Education) degree, and are guaranteed a place in year five for the Level 9 Professional Master of Education. At the end of year five, graduates are fully qualified and registered second level science teachers.

By choosing this degree you will have a range of options open to you after four years. Having studied Science and Education for four years you are awarded a BSc Science (with Education) degree - a level 8 honours degree. You can decide to exit the programme at this stage or stay on for one more year of postgraduate study which will result in the Level 9 Professional Master of Education degree. This extra year is required in order to meet the Teaching Council requirements to be registered as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in two subjects.

Having completed the five years of the BSc Science (with Education) degree, students have a Professional Master of Education (PME). Graduates from this programme are on an equal footing with graduates from the consecutive route (i.e. four year BSc followed by two year PME). Through this pathway you are fully qualified after five years rather than taking the six year route.

CAO applicants may also consider the BSc MH201 degree as another potential route into MH212. MH201 students who have completed first year can apply to transfer into MH212 and take two science subjects from biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics with education in second year. Students who have studied mathematical physics and mathematics in first year can apply to transfer into BSc Mathematics with Education in second year.

These transfers are subject to the availability of places, the student's performance in first year and an interview.

Career Options

After five years of study on the Science (with Education) degree students will have achieved a Level 9, Professional Master of Education (PME) teaching qualification in two science subjects. Graduates will be ready to apply for teaching positions in second level schools.

We offer a range of postgraduate courses which currently include:

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Special Educational Needs
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Management
  • Postgraduate Diploma in School Guidance Counselling
  • Masters degree in one of your subject areas
