Hi, I'm thinking of applying to the psychology PGDE program at Strathclyde and was wanting to hear from anyone who has applied, is a current student or graduate. Just general thoughts, though I am interested in how full-time it is and what hours I could work part-time to support myself.

Thanks,
Abebe41

Hi

I'm not a student on this particular program, but in general, PGDE courses will be very full on. You will undertake placements in school which will be full time hours, and you will end up doing uni work/school work at home too. It would be very difficult to do a PGDE full time and work part time alongside it. I'd strongly suggest looking at other financial options e.g. working and saving up before hand etc.

Thanks. This is what I was worried about, so good to see it confirmed. I don't know how I'll be able to save up for next year though. I might have to delay it for a good while.

What funding is available to you? In England, all PGCEs/PGDEs have student finance funding available- are you able to get SAAS funding in Scotland? This might reduce the amount you need to save up?
