This medical school was converted into Dhanvantari Medical College at the time of de facto transfer of Pondicherry to Government of India.This Medical College was later upgraded into Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER).

Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research originated on 1 January 1823 as “Ecole de Médicine de Pondichéry, ” a medical school established by the French imperial government in India to train French citizens in Pondichéry. In 1956 the government of India took over administration of Puducherry from the French and renamed it as “Dhanvantri Medical College”.[6] After Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s (who laid the foundation stone after Indian government’s takeover of the institution)A death on May 27, 1964, it was again renamed to “Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research” (JIPMER) (on 13 July 1964).

In 1863, a medical college called the Ecole de Médicine de Pondichéry was established by the French government in Pondicherry. Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research was one of the earliest institutions of tropical medicine and the teaching staff consisted of surgeons and doctors of the French navy and troupes colones. Students who were trained here were granted a diploma called Médicin Locale that allowed them to practice medicine in the colonial territories. With the de jure transfer of Puducherry to India, the Government of India took over the college and renamed it simply Medical College, Pondicherry. For a short period, it was called the Dhanvantri Medical College and, on July 13, 1964, it was rechristened as the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research. Today, the institution is universally known by the acronym JIPMER.

Under the French, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research was located in the heart of the town of Pondicherry in the modified buildings of the high court, opposite Le place de Gaulle, which is now the Legislative Assembly Hall. In 1959, SE Le Comte Stanislas Ostrorog, Ambassadeur de France aux Indes, laid the foundation stone of the new medical college building that was located on the outskirts of the town and, in 1964, the college moved to its new campus at Gorimedu.

Where will a 'Postgraduate Certificate in Education' allow you to teach (UK)?

I really know nothing about this, but Birmingham Conservatoire of Music that I want to go to has a 4 year course that I want to take. But, if I take a five year course, there is an integrated PGCE. All I want to know is, where will it allow me to teach? Secondary schools? Or will it allow me to teach in a college? If not, what qualification would I need to teach in a college?
Thanks. (:

Technically a PGCE will allow you to teach any age and any subject regardless of what you train in. However I'd guess that the integrated PGCE will enable you to be a secondary school music teacher.

Give the music department a buzz and get them to clarify exactly what PGCE it is.
