sounds like a good plan *(Original post by john2054)
The masters which i want a place on is the mental health research degree at notts (a top university), and they have told me that i need a psychology degree, or a conversion degree, with a 2.1, to get a place. Plus i have talked to the programme leader who has both confirmed that i will need this psychology element, and that i should get a place with it. But as i already said, the conversion degree at notts is full up for this year. I don't mind taking another year out though. I need to get my meds cut down as well.
How far to take third postgraduate qualification? Watch

Already doing the teacher training. Am currently doing the level 4 certificate with the aim of doing the level 5 diploma. All very part time as I'm actually not very well...got a long term illness so I have to factor a lot around that.*
I've worked. I've totally worked. I've worked whilst studying. I value study to the extent that I've always done it alongside work. It's not an either or.
I still think that a PhD on top of two+ (potentially three) Masters degrees, is massively outstripping what you need for FE teaching. As far as I can see, your route after the current course and teaching qualification, will be to start job hunting and/or building up actual teaching experience.Last edited by Klix88; 07-09-2016 at 11:34.

Thanks for your advice.
I've decided to call it a day at PgDip. I don't think it's fair to myself to keep changing the goalposts, especially when financially it is causing me a lot of worry.
I emailed the uni early this week and have yet to hear back from them. I kind of fantasize that they're in talks about giving me a scholarship lol! Realistically though, it's probably just that they are busy at the moment.
No regrets. I believe that the PgDip will be suitable for what I want to achieve and I have enjoyed it immensely but with two masters degrees already, my financial and thus mental health needs some tlc
