Hi! I just want honest opinions on my odds of getting into a PGCE program. I am from the USA and will graduate with a double major in English and Psychology next year. I should graduate with above a 3.8 cumulative GPA, which from what I understand should transfer over as a first class honors degree. As for experience, I am volunteering at a school and working at another school this semester, in addition to nannying. I also volunteer for two different organizations and am working on getting my substitute authorization license. I am involved in a few clubs and a research lab at my university, too. I plan on applying right away when applications open up next fall for 2022, and I saw that it is a little bit like first come first serve basis, perhaps to an extent? Anyways, I want to apply to University of Manchester, University of Bristol and then either Durham or Oxford. Do you think I will have a good chance of getting in? Does being an international student and right out of university hurt me a lot?

I would have thought you’d be a good candidate - you will be paying high fees!!

I studied abroad there and enjoyed the overall lifestyle much more than the USA. It is where I hope to live permanently in the future.

Ok go for it if you can afford the international tuition fee and living costs. You won’t be eligible for uk loans or bursaries sadly

Yes, I am aware! Luckily the programs are only one year and are actually cheaper than all of the teacher training courses in the USA I was looking into (and shorter).
