Applicants for the PGCE course

As a condition of offer of a place on the PGCE course, or if you intend to conduct practical research in educational settings, you are required to obtain a check from the Disclosure and Barring Service. Enhanced Disclosure is the level of check required for all those seeking a position which involves regular and unsupervised contact with children or vulnerable adults. As a trainee teacher, or because of the nature of the research, you are required to obtain this highest level of check.

If you firmly accept a conditional or unconditional offer you will receive an email from the Student Registry initially. When payment has been made, you will receive a separate email from Agenda, the company who carry out DBS checks on the University's behalf. This email will advise you what you need to do to complete the DBS application via their online portal.

A condition of your offer of a place at the University of Cambridge is subject to receipt of an Enhanced Disclosure. All conditions of your offer should be met before the start of term. The current fee for seeking the disclosure is £51.19.
