    Couldn't find a thread that had already been started for people with offers on PGCE courses. Give me a shout if you have an offer!

    I've accepted my offer for Primary.

    Congratulations! I'm probably going to live in private accommodation. Still waiting to hear back with further details and applying to colleges. By the looks of it they will be sending info out this month.

    Me too, I saw they sent an email out about applications. Are you applying for membership and accommodation, or just membership?

    I’m going to apply for accommodation and membership as I don’t know durham at all. Trying to narrow places down etc but it’s so hard when you have no idea!

    I'm the same, I don't know it very well at all. I am in two minds, accommodation would make life easier, but I don't want to take the risk of getting somewhere far out or catered, as it wouldn't be very useful with being at school half of the time.

    Thank you! It was only a few days - I think I sent my preferences in last Thursday and maybe got the confirmation email on Tuesday? I'm not sure if it takes longer for accommodation applications though!

    That is quick, I remember reading it could be up to 4 weeks. I only submitted mine yesterday, so I'm sure I won't hear back until next week.

    Have you been sent anything specific about the HASE yet? I accepted back in November so i've been itching to know more since then!

    Maybe an email with good news on Monday morning then? I don't know if this is reassuring or just really unhelpful but I haven't either! I hope that means we have to sort all that out nearer the time?

    It is reassuring, I keep feeling like I'm not receiving emails haha. I did ask a while ago and they said that information about HASE would be send out March/April. I assumed it would be around the same time as college apps, but we will probably have to wait a bit longer.

    I know what you mean! Especially having spent the last few months getting my application together, interview prepping, etc. and now ... the waiting game? I'll let you know if something happens!

    Oh cool I'm in Castle too, good to know another secondary PGCE member I got confirmation of membership last week, but even though I've now paid my accommodation deposit they don't guarantee accommodation at the specific college until... some time later.

    The primary school where I TA part time has said they'll take me for experience in the summer but not in September, so I hope we do hear about that soon!

    Congrats! Did you also get the email about the PSE and Facebook group for Primary?

    It looks like the PSE is only 5 days and not 10 anymore!

    Yes, it’s a lot of information at once isn’t it! Don’t hear anything for ages and then get it all at once haha. I was looking at all the stuff last night, and yeah it is only 5 days! I wonder if that’s the difference between primary and secondary. It’s a lot of work to squeeze into so little time!
