    Hi,

    I've recently accepted a place to study the Secondary English PGCE at Hope for September 2018. I was wondering if anybody else was doing the same course?😊

    Yeah they do seem really strict, I'm hoping they'll be more lax but I'm not sure tbh😂 It might be worth emailing someone at the university for more advice on private accommodation?😊

    Yeah good idea actually! I’m looking for other PGCE students to live with cause I don’t want to end up living with first years! Plus it would be good to live with others on the same course. How are you feeling for starting? 🙂

    Yeah that's definitely a good idea😊 St Michael's is supposed to be postgrad only so I'm hoping I'll avoid the first years😂 Slightly apprehensive as I've heard it's very intense but at the same time I can't wait to start😊You?😊

    Yeah that’s the good thing about halls, you will be living with all post grads! Im the same, can’t wait to start but I’m more nervous about living in Liverpool than doing the actual PGCE lol I’ve a good bit of experiences in schools, so it’s more so the move over that I’m scared off!

    Hi Erin2705 & FrancineKennon :hello:

    Congratulations on both receiving offers and accepting your places to study on a PGCE course that's great news.

    We can see you are staying/considering the halls we have at our Aigburth campus. We do allow you to have visitors however there a just a few rules such as signing them in for fire safety reasons. We have an upcoming Open House Event coming up on Saturday 21st April where you can view accommodation and speak to members of the Accommodation team regarding the guest policy and also speak to student ambassadors and their experiences of living there.

    Please don't be nervous about living in Liverpool, it is a brilliant and vibrant city with plenty of things to do outside of your course. You can view this video for some student experience about living in the city.



    Please do give me a shout if you have any concerns or questions before you start your course

    Yeah I'm still yet to find any of them though😂 I've been to Liverpool quite a few times and it's a very friendly city, much nicer than places like Chester on a night out😊 Everyone will be in the same boat so I'm sure it'll be okay😊
