Hi everyone!

Looking to see if anyone has accepted offers from Edinburgh for PGDE teaching for 2019 entry? I have offers of biology and chemistry but was wondering if anyone knew the sort of structure/timings of the course. I know it starts August but I can't find an awful lot of info online. Also, hello if you are also going to Edinburgh for teaching!

Hey! I found the interview to be fine, it starts with a group discussion type interview then you will be called in for your individual interview. You then do the presentation and then answer some questions. The interviewers were great and made you feel comfortable.

What subject are you going for? The presentation can be on something really simple and only takes a short amount of time. Just try to stay calm and it will be alright 🙂 good luck!

Hi!

thanks for your reply. Good to know that it's not as scary as it sounds.. I'm going for Secondary Biology, so just trying to figure out the presentation at the moment!

If anything is revealed at my interview that would be of help to you I'll let you know!

I have an offer for Biology with Edinburgh and did contact them to ask about timetables etc but just got a standard response that it was full time so Monday to Friday 9 -5.
I also have an offer from strathclyde and am really struggling to make a decision.

Hi! I just confirmed my offer at Edinburgh on UCAS as firm choice and Glasgow as insurance as the conditions are lower. Strathclyde declined me...Ahh I see, I emailed this weekend to check when the official start date would be - I’m thinking 19th August (as that’s when Glasgow’s official start date is for PGDE) but wanted to confirm that so I’m waiting on a reply.
