sorry to hear that. What type of experience is it that you have? I have called the Uni's and they said that a minimum of 4 weeks and that the experience i have is too old but i work a full time job and wont be able to get time to do any of it. they also said that it has to be an on going thing. so i am stressing.
A minimum of 4 weeks seems such bull**** to me, I work in a high school, work at summer camps with primary school kids and work at a youth group for primary aged kids. I work two jobs 6 days a week I can’t get anymore experience without having to switch my job. I have applied for new jobs in primary schools so hopefully I’ll get that... honestly it’s brutal I meet all their requirements but they’re making it harder to get into because of the sheer amount of applicants... they gotta do something, it’s not fair. I applied on the 4th of September and I have been rejected by Strathclyde but haven’t heard from any of the others but someone I know applied on Sunday and was offered an interview yesterday for uws so I’m kind of raging about that.

I have over a years experience and Strathclyde turned me down. I emailed them to find out more, and they never got back to me.

I have an interview for UWS P.E at the end of the month. Been practicing my gymnastics routine - not my forte 😂 Just need to nail down my dance.

Strathclyde have confirmed that they have documents and I have an interview, they just need to arrange dates. Hoping that is after the new year to give me time to prepare.

Anyone else got interviews coming up?

Hi, I just received an interview invitation from the University of Glasgow (primary)! Very happy as they actually rejected my application last year, I just wanted to ask if anyone knows what the interview has been like in the past years?

Hi lallu

I'm going to be sending my application to Glasgow too at the end of December once I've finished my classroom experience.

Can I ask what your original degree was in and how much experience you have applied with?

This is my first time applying, do you you have any idea why you didn't get an interview last year?

I'm sorry, I've not even answered your question - I've just bombarded you with mine! I'm sure someone will come along shortly with some answers

Me too! Excited and nervous in equal measure. Now the preparation begins! I've been reading through the forum from last year and it seems to have bits and pieces about what it's like. I think we'll get some information directly from the uni too.

Glasgow sent me an invitation to interview for 17th of Dec last night and I've just got one for Strathclyde this morning for the 12th of Dec. Going to be a busy December! Just waiting to hear back from Dundee and Edinburgh now. Good luck everyone!

For anyone who has received an interview from UWS make sure you have downloaded the interview information. You can get this from UCAS track. View your UWS option and in the box where it says recent update you should see details of your interview. Below that in More Information there's a link to copy and paste which has all the interview information. Hope this helps because I almost missed this!

Hey does anyone know if the experience needs to be based in the UK? I have been a home room teacher in China and Korea for the past three years and just received a rejection from UHI. Still waiting to hear back from the rest though :/

I'm based in France and have organised classroom teaching here for next year, I only have some Uni and online teaching so far. I have interviews for 2 Universities so i don't think it made a difference in my case.
