    haha I'm sure! Would you advise choosing the 3yr or 2 year if offered? I know the 2 year is pretty intense, but I am in my final year of a early years teaching degree now which is already pretty intense so I think it would be managable as long as you stay organised haha!
    Personally I'd go for it, yes, its intense but manageable from what I see.

    Well my degree is an early years degree, so some of it is teaching, but also we do some social work modules etc, and I always was interested in both. I got onto queens waiting list 1st straight out of school but was worried about having to decline other offers and maybe not getting a place, so this was my second choice. I work in a special needs school atm, and have gotten to work in many different placements with children, and its been really good experience.
    It isn't a PGCE as of such so it combines modules so you can go into different careers with it

    Jenny u have 6 essays and law exam in first term, second term is three essays and one exam. This is the 3 yr route. Placements are allocated and you have no say where u go unless you have a disability. You have the opportunity to specify towns where u are willing to travel to but no guarantees, where your final placement is concerned you get to name three areas ud like to work, but again no guarantees you will get any of ur choices.

    also, did anyone end up really far from where they were living, that's what I am afraid of, like if we live in Belfast but get a placement in Fermanagh, dunno how I'll cope with that:/

    I rang magee about placements as I wanted to know that info before I accept their offer and they clarified that they try to get u a placement close to ur home and do their best to get u a placement with in the service group u prefer Also.

    From what I hear from Queens they don't take too much of that into consideration so I really really wouldn no what to do if I get queens aswel. To hear me ud think I have options lol
