    Accepted my offer for PGCE Computer Science at University of Huddersfield so was just wondering if anyone else is doing it there?

    Or even if anyone's not doing it there I'd still like to know which university you have chosen, or will choose?

    Thanks

    Hey,

    Congrats on getting accepted!

    My choices are UCL (IoE) or King's. I plan on applying by the end of the week (I know, I'm quite late ) - there's open days happening next week, which I will be attending, so surely I won't be the only person applying a little late.

    Have you chosen the School Direct or University Lead option?

    Any advice you could give to someone applying?

    Thanks

    Seriously consider going via a School's Direct option. I have found that University led and School's direct are practically identical with two vital differences.
    1. You know which schools you will be working in well in advance. By contrast the uni lot found out about 4 days before starting
    2. In my school, I have benefitted from all the training offered to the SCHITT trainees which has included a mental health course, voice coaching and more besides.

    In order words, School Direct has been vastly better than University led IMO.

    Good luck!

    Great! Thanks for that information!

    Do you apply for the School's Direct route through UCAS too?

    Thanks!
