    This is for anyone who is going to Canterbury Christ Church doing a PGCE primary or secondary. I got an offer of place this morning (Citizenship).

    I will be moving into the area, so will be looking for house mates.

    Having read through some of the threads on here we are going to be slightly busy come Sept.

    The interview was good. The interviewer put me at ease, felt like a chat rather than a formal interview.

    Are you thinking about entry in 2012

    Yeah. To be honest, it's not my orginal choice. Applied for Sociology PGCE way back in October and got an offer from Keele, who have retracted it, due to place and funding cuts; they've actually closed the course for good apparently. Everywhere else filled up, and now Keele have told me to look at Citizenship. What's your degree in?

    I just got told my interview for secondary RE (11-18) is on the 7th March, so that should be interesting - any advice for interviews at canterbury?

    Congrats on all your places - some people say we're mad for wanting to teach because the PGCE year is so hard - but I think we must just love teaching that much!

    Hey,

    Well done for getting an interview ponpon14! My interview was for Psychology (14-19) so I can't tell you if yours will be similar but my interview was really nice! The woman interviewing me was really lovely and just made it into more of a chat - nothing scary!

    Best of luck to you!! Where did you get your degree, what is it in?

    I know everyone says how tough the PGCE is going to be but it hasn't put me off! It will be worth it!!

    Hey,

    That's great, should be good! Good luck with your final year!
    I finished my Psychology degree in June 2011, I went to Uni of Kent - so going to CCCU wont be much of a change lol - Canterbury is like my second home!

    Yes hopefully will see you there!

    Well done for getting a place! CCCU is meant to be great for Primary - my friend is doing her Primary PGCE there atm and she loves it!

    I will be commuting too - I live an hour away - I'm used to driving there though I did it for the last two years of my degree at Kent!

    I had my interview for a Primary PGCE at CCCU the other week, got an unconditional offer a few days later (they must have loved my application! ). I'm now wondering who else has been accepted onto the course. Anyone? :3

    Did they give you an unconditional because you already have your uni grades (they usually do that) or was it because you were awesome and still waiting on your degree classification?

    What kind of things have you done before experience wise etc?

    I. AM. AWESOME! =D

    Hehe, just kidding. I already have my grades from Uni, so I guess that was the reason why they gave me an unconditional place. I was just surprised at the swiftness of their response!

    In terms of experience, I've just been volunteering at a local Primary School in Faversham since November last year. Before that, I haven't done any in terms of Primary School experience as I was at university. :P How about you?

    Also a quick question from me. I was told I had to complete and send off my PGCE Placement Information form, but in the top right corner it has a box for a student ID number (and it states I can't send if off until I fill that box in). So my question is this: when (and how) do we got our student ID numbers and email addresses?
