    Hey Guys;

    Well, I'm about to enter the final year of my degree, after which I will be applying for my PGCE. Anyway, I spoke to the teaching department at my uni and they said most people typically go into teaching because of the bursary that goes with it (typically £20-£25k tax free), anyway, I was thinking but, would it be best to invest it into say a mortgage or spent it on my tuition fee so I don't get riddled with more debt?

    Advice?

    This is all assuming I get accepted that is...

    Invest it into a mortgage, who knows if you'd actually ever pay the debt back from a pgce on a teachers salary.

    depends on what part of the country up north go for property do in the south tuition
    i mean if i had £20,000 to spend i would go tuition as i am down south and it would pay for most of my course even if i still have to find all the expenses of living
    but
    that the course would take my employability from high street to hatton garden with ease
    not to mention make my take home pay go from £30,000+commission per year to per month (on average)
