Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Our BA (Hons) Primary Education is one of our more popular courses, so tends to attract quite a lot of applications. It is still open for 2019, so if you are interested in applying I would recommend doing so as soon as possible.

The BA (Hons) Primary Education and BA (Hons) Primary Education with Mathematics are very similar courses. They both award Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), and both involve placements within primary schools throughout the three years. The main difference is that with the BA (Hons) Primary Education with Mathematics you will progress to focus more on mathematics units by taking 2 mathematics specialism units, so that when you graduate you will be able to say that you have specialist mathematics knowledge within the primary education field.

You can apply for both courses if you wish.

I hope this helps

Hi

There are approximately 180 places on the BA (Hons) Primary Education here at Manchester Met. In terms of the timetable, students can expect to be in University 5 days a week (when not on placement) with sessions running from 9am to 6pm. During placements, students are expected to be in school by 8.15am until 4.15pm.

I hope this helps!

Hi if i have A level in Psychology,French and Geography and get AAB predicted grades, could i get an unconditional offer and if you get BBB are you guaranteed a place .

Also, what would you need to do for the interview if you are applying for next year as this is the only university i want to go to

And also do you need recent work experience in a primary school or do you not need to

Thank You

Hi

In terms of the entry requirements for the BA (Hons) Primary Education, applicants would need minimum A Level grades of BBC to be considered for the course. Unfortunately, we're not able to comment on your potential success or failure until you submit your application. This is because we look at other factors in our decision-making process, including personal statement, reference, and previous academic performance.

Applicants are invited to interview based on the strength of their application, including the personal statement. Group interviews are organised with up to eight candidates, observed by two interviewers (university tutors and/or Primary Heads). After an introductory presentation, attendees will be asked to present a two-minute mini-talk, followed by questions, on a topic chosen from a list provided with the interview invitation. This is followed by a group discussion, self-managed by candidates.

Although no longer compulsory, it would enhance your application to undertake some UK work experience before you apply for the course, to be able to demonstrate an awareness of teachers’ roles and responsibilities. We usually recommend 10 days of experience if you're able to obtain it.

I hope this helps!

Sophie
