I'm a graduate of Genetics currently working in medical publishing with a strong aspiration to get into teaching Biology at secondary level.
I've spoken at length with those in the profession, gained experience working with my target age group and thought long and hard and have decided fully it is the avenue I want to pursue. I am very aware of how demanding the course can be, having had a friend just complete the PGDipEd at University of Birmingham in Biology a few weeks ago; however I am wondering, from those who have completed it, what are my chances of playing sport at a high level at the university while undertaking my PGCE. I am a very keen hockey player and seek to continue playing whilst undertaking the course.
I am not so fussed on my "social life" but playing hockey is important to me and I wanted to know if it would be logistically possible.
Regardless I will be applying in September of this year and am fully committed to my choice and have a genuine excitement to start.
Cheers for anyone's input,
PGCE and extracurricular/social life Watch

You'll find that most unis will give you Weds off for sport which is when most teams meet. Placements may get in the way now and then though.
