    I have been offered a place - for which I am honoured, however the prospect of having to find £4,000 is a serious worry.

    Does anyone know if I accept the offer but then can't find the money?

    Hi all, I just got an offer for a place on the PGCE Primary Education course with QTS at Hallam. Anyone know what happens between now and the course starting? They did mention a course day over the summer to get acquainted with other course members and so on but is there a concrete date for that?

    Alright Guys,

    Congrats to all those who have been accepted for this September.

    I'm going to be applying this summer for September 2012. Can anyone help me out with the interview day? What questions were you asked so I can prepare fully?

    If anyone can offer any other advice or info I would appreciate it massively.

    Thanks.

    The said at interview that this would be on Monday 27th June - but I guess that is subject to change!
    I'm sure we will eventually get something through the post about arrangements.. Has anybody actually managed to log onto the student applicant portal? :confused:x

    not yet but then aside from my offer I haven't had anything through either email or post. So I don't have any password or username with which to sign in. Hope we get something soon though it'll be good to know whats happening. Are you on the PGCE Primary too then?

    Hi all, i have an offer for PGCE Early Years anyone studying the same? i have rang up uni last week and they said the induction day is 27th June and the course starts on 5th September. I also spoke to the finance department to see if there was anything else i could claim for apart from the maintanance grant and aside from the loans available there is nothing - it would still be worth ringing individuallly though as all circumstances are different. The lady did say that if i recieive full maintanance grant which is i think nearly £3,000 then the uni will top this up with £300 which you will recieve in Febuary. Has anyone else had trouble applying for student finance online? it wouldnt let me do it so i have had to ring up and request for the form through the post, the deadline is end of May so i hope my form gets here soon!! I cant wait now, nervous about being a student again but really looking forward to starting. x

    I applied the middle of last month to start a secondary maths pgce at Hallam. Does anyone know what the time scale maybe to get an interview and hopefully an offer.

    I need to work back for giving my notice at my current employers and my wife is starting a nursing course and needs to fill in her finance form and cant really fill it in accurate until I know what I will be doing.

    Also is anyone willing to give any tips and info on the interview?

    I haven't sorted out accommodation either (PGCE Life long learning sector for me in September!) They have told me that I won't find out what I have until I get my results (29th June) which seems a bit silly to me.

    I applied for halls because I'm quite organized and don't mind noise too much (lived with first years my whole three years here in Hull) but it would be nice to live with other post-grads.
