Does anyone know if PGCE at UCL is internationally recognised?
Anyone going to the interview on Tuesday?
Can anyone currently studying a PGCE at UCL advise how long on average they spend travelling daily to their placement?
Thanks you for getting back to me! Do you know if placements tend to be concentrated in certain areas? I live in zone 6 (North West London), and a lot of nearby schools which previously offered placements through UCL no longer do so.

My friend on the UCL PGCE Secondary MFL told me he was asked to complete a 5-day primary observation - after he was made an offer - and a related assignment before the course starts. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'm confused - why would a PGCE Secondary trainee need to observe in a primary setting? But he also mentioned when the course actually started, many of his classmates did not do this at all. If this is really what UCL asks for, I wonder if previously done observations can count, or I have to do new ones or go back to the teacher I observed to sign on the UCL paperwork.

yep, this is a requirement for me too.
it's just to see the progression from uesd 6 to year 7 to be honest. they give more information about whh you have to do this at the interview as well as on your offer email.
thanks! So you recieve this requirement as an offer condition, or optional pre course task? the thing is I'm an overseas student and it's not always possible to fly to the UK for observation. I've done secondary observations thou.
