    Hi,

    I am starting a full time PGCE course (primary) at Hope , Lpool in Sept. Can anyone tell me what sort of hours I would actually be doing when at uni. I have heard days are long but trying to get childcare sorted at the moment and was wondering if anyone on here has done the course and could help.

    Many Thanks,

    I don't know about your uni but my uni told me most uni days will be 9-5 (some days may have small gaps or end a bit earlier I don't know) but it's a pretty long day.

    Yeah it's roughly 9-5 every day for uni (at least for me). Sometimes less. For school placements, I would say (to be safe) 7.30-6.30, when taking into account travel as well... It's a long today! Of course, some days you would finish earlier, it depends on what you have to do at school

    kingston told us at the interview it would be 9-4 and then placements would be 8-6 or so...
    I'm assuming its similar everywhere just because the PGCE is so intensive~

    St Marys told us the same kinda thing, around 9-4 each day, and then if you're taking the extra masters credits you'll stay in some days til 6.

    I were told to expect it to be pretty much 9-5 when we're at uni, and longer when we're on placements.
