University of Manchester PGCE Secondary 2019Watch
So I've just firmed Manchester to do a PGCE Secondary in Maths starting in the coming September and was wondering if there was anyone else starting at the same time!
Also what are people's thoughts on accommodation because having had a look at the uni's postgraduate accommodation, it seems rather expensive and so was wondering what others were planning on doing. I'm currently thinking of getting private accommodation but haven't a clue what or where.
For those of you on the course or on a similar course, how's it going?

Have a look at Manchester Life, Manchester Apartments, and the Slateyard as potential places. They're a little pricey but everything is included. Otherwise 1 and even 2 bed flats are not he market for between £500 and £1000 per month, which with our bursary is 'affordable'.
Hi, I'm a 38yr old student at UoM. I started last Sept and I am in the first year of a three year Environmental Management degree within the School of Education, Environment and Development, which is the same school for PGCE students. UoM is a great uni, the only disadvantage for mature students is that there aren't many of us. This may not apply to the PGCE courses and there may be a more varied age range than the undergrad courses. I definitely wouldn't let it put you off coming to UoM, I've heard that the PGCE courses are really good and I think I'll probably apply for one when I've finished my degree. Well done for getting in both uni's and good luck. If you need to know anything else about UoM just let me know
Thanks so much I accepted my offer at the uni .. start this September, so may bump in to you later in the year. Currently working and travelling in Indonesia, so making the most of my last few months before I head back home! All the best with your degree. x
