    Hi All,

    I wonder if anyone can help please? I have just accepted a place to study Primary Ed (early years) at Roehampton uni starting in September. I am currently a part-time nanny and I want to know whether the first year timetable will allow me to keep my job (I really don't want to leave it) or whether I will have to hand in my notice in august.


    I have already tried contacting a few people including the uni to find out what this years timetable is but nobody seems to be able to help me. Can anyone help please? I need to know:

    1) The current timetable?
    2) How many hours are you required to attend a week of lectures/study?
    3) Do you get half terms?
    4) Do you think the course will allow me to do a part-time job during the week mon-fri? or is it too demanding?

    Sorry to bombard you with all these questions, I would really appreciate your help!!

    Thanks a million in advance...

    its usually around 9 hours a week but it really dpends on the uni ect. you get half terms - the holidays are quite generous! you maight have to do job share if that is a possibility because the course means hours in classes but also doing essays and other coursework. i am not sure what your timetale will consist of sorry!



    i hope this helps any qusetions on what i have said i will be happy to answer for you!

    1) not sure on that one sorry!
    2)usually 9 but depends on the uni
    3)yes you do - they are quite generous with hoidays on this course!
    4)you could maybe go job share if that is a possibility for you because there is alot of coursework e.g essay writting that needs to be done at a good standard so i reccomend that as an idea and that way you can still do the job just not as many hours as you are. this means you will have a busy lifestyle though so wont have a lot of freetime which can be hard when you are on a course and just wanting a break form it all !

    really hope this helps, any more questions i will be happy to advise you and good luck!

    Remember that when you do placements, it'll be all day 5 days-a-week eventually.

    Thanks guys, that's really useful! It's so annoying that we have to wait right up until September to find out. I guess im going to have to quit!

    Sorry not to reply directly to each individual post, I haven't quite figured out how to use TSR yet.

    Are you both currently studying Primary ed? And at what uni?

    I'm starting in September at Chichester. On the admissions portal, it has this years 1st year timetable, I guess to give us an idea of what it'll be like. If I get on my computer later, I'll try and post it on here to show you

    I'm a little late to this topic and I just thought I'd add to the point about the part-time job!

    I've just finished my 2nd year of Primary Ed and I've kept a job (2 nights a week and Sundays) going which actually did surprise me!
    I did 5 weeks placement before Easter and things got tough (all the planning and work out of school I had to do), I didn't quit my job; I was lucky enough to find cover for a few nights!!
    When I'm not on placement I find no problems with having a job!

    Good luck!

    I work as a tutor at a tutor center and am fortunately transferring to a local center near Roehampton in September. However, next week they want to discuss working hours, i don't know my timetable(Primary Ed) yet but was wondering whether there are any trends in the timetables - i've heard wednesday afternoons are free. Are there any other hour adjustments during the week? And are lectures actually run at 5 o'clock?

    I really want to keep weekends free to travel home or to visit my boyfriend at hull if i want to.

    Thanks!
