    Hey everyone.
    I'm applying for a PGCE starting 2014, and I really don't know which Uni to put as my first choice. I would love to go to Oxford but I am afraid they won't consider me because they will privilege UK students with UK degrees (I have all the equivalents to GCSE and a First bachelor degree in Italy and have studied for one year at Warwick).
    Does anyone know how Oxford usually sees international students? Thank you!

    Why would they?:confused: If your grades meet the requirements and you can demonstrate an interest in teaching etc, there's no reason why you should be disadvantaged during the application process.

    There are lots of international students at Oxford, so presumably they're fine with them!
