    About the course:
    In first year, most science and mathematics modules will be taken in common with other first-year science students. There are also further specialist modules in mathematics and education.

    The second and third years build on this content and integrate science and mathematics with education.
    At the start of the third year, you choose two subjects to specialize in (chemistry/physics, mathematics/ physics or chemistry/mathematics). You’ll be qualified to teach both of your two speciality subjects to honours Leaving Certificate level.

    In your fourth year, you’ll continue with your two chosen subjects. A quarter of the course is devoted to education, particularly science education, while the remainder focuses on two of three subjects, physics, chemistry and mathematics, with additional courses provided in biology and IT.

    There are four important school placement periods throughout the course, allowing you to practice and develop the teaching skills you’ve learnt in a real classroom environment. In Year One, you teach small groups of students from local schools. In Year Two, you spend four weeks in post-primary schools, taking classes up to Junior Certificate level. A further four-week placement takes place in September immediately preceding Year Three. Finally, all of the second semester in Year Four is spent taking junior and senior cycle classes in science, mathematics, physics and/or chemistry.
