I don't know if people would like this as well - https://www.facebook.com/groups/4192...source=unknown I have made a group on Facebook, thinking it might be easier for us to communicate/stay in touch and hopefully have people we will know if we get in.

Completely up to yourselves if you would like to join.

I did get an acknowledgement from Strathclyde at the end of October (after a fairly early submission for primary), but my gmail sorted into spam! Perhaps the same thing has happened to other people. Worth checking the spam folder in case. I only noticed it recently and had been wondering why they hadn't sent anything. I applied for Strathclyde, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and UWS. I've received an invitation to interview at the UWS and only acknowledgements/requests to create accounts from everyone else.

I have applied to Aberdeen, Dundee, Strathclyde, Glasgow and Highlands & Islands. Really hope I am chosen for interview! My eyes are glued to my emails 24-7 right now haha. Nice to read about other people having the same stress as me!

Hi guys, I just received the interview invitation from Strathclyde. My interview will be on Friday. Finger crossed 🤣
Congratulations Hayley! Best of luck. Just curious..how long ago did you apply?

(Original post by Chogg0)
On a similar note, has anyone even received a confirmation of their application from Strathclyde? 😅
I received confirmation. They were the last of my universities to get back to me! No more word as of it. Just applied on Sunday!

Thank you! I applied as soon as the date opened which was 4th Sep. I finished my interview today. Course leader is really nice and he asked me some questions about my work experiences and then translate a paragraph. The process was really relax but I was a little nervous 🤣 Hope you will hear news soon!

Thank you ! Because I'm not in Scotland now, so I had interview through Skype. I didn't have presentation, I think it depends on the subject. Fingers crossed for us!

This was a great shout btw cuz my Glasgow uni acknowledgement was in my spam! I’m now paranoid and I’ll be checking it all the time

Thank you so much for this! I just checked my email and my Strathclyde acknowledgement was in my spam! Good luck everyone! Hopefully we will hear soon!

I didn’t get an interview for strathclyde because app I don’t have enough experience... frustrating and I’m pretty sure the others will most likely say the same thing... I actually don’t know what the f*** they want. I don’t really think there is much more I can do. Good luck to the rest of you all, hopefully you’ll have better luck than I have!

Hi, I was at the Strathclyde postgrad open day this week. We were told by the PGDE course tutor that it makes no difference if you apply early or late. However they did say that classroom experience gained after submission of application carries no weight. So reading between the lines, the later you apply the better, as this gives you more time to gain experience.

Hi Gemma, what attracts you to Perth and Dundee - location? I was reading the FAQS on a PDFand Perth gives you 2 days online learning per week which means that you only have to be on site for 3 days. Pretty good for keeping travel costs to a minimum.I'm planning on applying to Strathclyde and Glasgow however I might also apply to Perth as it's only an extra 15 minute drive.
