Case Study

Harry Boddy

South Shields, UK

PGCE Science with Biology Secondary Education


Harry Boddy had a job at a pharmaceutical company but had always wanted to get into teaching. A friend recommended the University of Sunderland's PGCE Science with Biology Secondary Education course to Harry who is looking to work in secondary education as a science teacher after graduating.

When talking to a friend who recommended me the University (he’s a lecturer who teaches teachers) he said it might be a good idea to do the course, as he said I would be suited for it.

The best aspects of the course are meeting people and making friends as well as the two teaching placements. Hopefully, I am looking to work in an SEN school as that is where I am most interested/have felt the most fulfilled working in.

I would advise prospective students looking to study at the University of Sunderland to work and study hard, but also enjoy yourself as much as you can. It was a hard but worthwhile qualification/course that I’ve enjoyed."
