Gaelic as a subject
The University of Strathcylde offer students the opportunity to study PGDE Secondary for Gaelic. This is a face-to-face course, with placements in schools offering Gàidhlig and Gaelic as a subject. This qualification allows teachers to teach Gàidhlig (fluent speakers) and Gaelic in Secondary schools in Scotland.
Subjects through the medium of Gaelic
The University of Strathclyde also offers students the opportunity to study certain subjects through the medium of Gaelic. Students applying follow the same course as those studying the subject through the medium of Gaelic with an opportunity to undertake some of their placements in schools offering the subject through the medium of Gaelic. All applicants must meet the entry requirements set out by the University for that subject and prove they are fluent in the language in interview.
