Hey!!

I had my first interview at Strathclyde yesterday, I am honestly clueless on how it went. They said we would be emailed yesterday if we did poorly, so at least I have passed the first hurdle.

Does anybody have experience on how long it takes to hear back? This is the uni I REALLY want to go to - but it was also my first interview!

Hi! I applied the day applications opened.

I heard back at the end of November but interviews didn't start till Monday. The next ones I believe are January then March.

It was a 5 minute presentation on a topic of your choice in front of 9 applicants and 2 interviewers, then a discussion with them all on the topic you are set, you will get told what it is in your email, then a wee multiple choice test thing!!

Good luck!!!!

To help the last two posters in this thread - I did my presentation on a musician I like, most did teaching from what I recall. Most of them have roles in support in schools so that made sense for them, but to me I didn't feel knowledgeable enough to do that.

Pick something you are interested in and present it the best you can! You will be made to feel welcome when you get in the room with your group.

I have yet to hear back, but my friend heard back a couple days later with an offer. I emailed into them and was told I am still to be considered, so I'm in the maybe pile for now.

Thanks a lot! That's very helpful. What other topics did the rest of applicants choose? I have my interview on the 6th and I have absolutely no clue! Thanks again

I was made an online offer by Stathclyde for PGDE Secondary 2 weeks ago, and track has still not updated with the offer, anybody else having this problem and know if there is normally a delay like this (presuming they are just backlogged in admissions)?

Hi, there was a delay of a week for mine but I wouldn't worry too much about that if you've received the email from Strathclyde - suppose it just depends how busy they are and they will be very busy just now!
