whats the uni like and this course??
My sister went to Leeds Trinity university doing the primary education course. I can safely say she did not enjoy the experience, she told me the course was repetitive and the teaching was bellow standard, not worth £9,250 by any accounts. The University is also incredibly small and is made up of a lot of mature students, as a result my sister found it difficult to make friends with people. Further to this the university offers little to no support to students who may be finding it difficult to fit in.

If you're wanting to do primary education I'd suggest you look at Universities such as Sheffield Hallam, Derby, Cumbria, Bishop Grosseteste and Durham (if you have the grades) are all much better bets for primary education.

She has since dropped out and is re-applying for 2019 entry at another university.

Hi, I'm currently at Bishop Grosseteste on the primary education course, and I can safely say it's an amazing course for teaching. We have students with children and they seem to manage extremely well, with extra support available from the university if needed.
