Applying

 We have ceased recruiting for September 2019. UCAS TT will reopen in October 2019 for a 2020 start. 

UCAS TT (Teacher Training) is set to open October 2018. The MSC will be accepting applications from the above date until June 2019. We have a variety of subjects and routes, please take some time to look at the routes and what suits you best, if you have further queries, please do get in touch, office@mscitt.org.uk

For entry onto a teacher training course 2019-2020 all applicants will need to apply through UCAS Teacher Training.  

UCAS teacher training is a single admissions system for all of the main postgraduate routes into teaching, this includes School Direct and established courses run by MSC.  

The key features of the UCAS TT system:

  • All applications will be processed through a single system, UCAS Teacher Training.
  • Applicants will have two windows in which they can make applications:  Apply 1 and Apply 2; there will be no "Extra" or "Clearing".
  • Applications will be processed in parallel in Apply 1 and sequentially in Apply 2.

Apply 1

  • In Apply 1 applicants can make up to three choices with no restrictions as to route or age group. So they might make three HEI choices or they might choose a mixture of courses run by HE course providers, SCITTs or School Direct.
  • In Apply 1 the three choices will be made and considered at the same time. Schools and providers will not have visibility of the other choices an applicant has made.
  • Schools and providers will have 40 working days from receipt of an application to make a decision (working days exclude weekends, bank holidays and UCAS Christmas closure).
  • Applicants will have ten working days from the receipt of their final decision to respond to offers. They may only hold one offer; they must decline any others.

Apply 2

  • Applicants can only use Apply 2 if they have been through Apply 1 but are not holding any offers.
  • In Apply 2, applicants make one choice at a time; they can make as many choices as they want but they are considered sequentially.
  • The turnaround times are the same as for Apply 1.

The MSC will issue school-funded candidates with an application form and we will require a letter of confirmation from the employing school, to confirm intention to train.
