    I've on my last module for the PGCE, and each level 7 module will bank you 20 credits. You'll have 60 credits to transfer if you do the Masters degree at the same university. Different institutions might not recognise them or accept them, so it's worth ringing up and finding out.

    Now I'm coming to the end of my PGCE, the prospect of staying on and doing my MA in Education whilst working part-time seems appealing. I am confused about what funding I could get. Some people are telling me the funding I'm getting to do my PGCE doesn't count towards the 4 years of funding they allow you. Does this mean I could get funding for my MA, having used 3 years for my undergraduate degree and 1 year for the PGCE? Just seems unrealistic to me that the government would invest so much money for one individual. I hope it's true.

    You get your UG degree + 1 year and PGCE is separate. You will not get the standard UG funding for an MEd, the PG loans (up to £10,000) would cover it.
