hi guys,

I wanted to know whether you need to have a personal statement if you're applying through UCAS for a PGCE course ? I am not too sure how the application process will work , if you're applying for 3 different unis for the same course. ( as a part pf the statement sometimes you have to talk about why you want to study in that particular uni)

Hi, at the moment I am applying for PGCE at university as well.
Yes, you do need to write a Personal statement, saying why you want to teach, what is the reason, what makes you a good candidate, you're experience working in a classroom and how this makes you suitable for the job, etc use UCAS, GETTEACHING websites to learn what makes the best personal statement.

Because it's one personal statement, look at the universities and their PGCE, and if there is anything similar between these universities' courses then talk about that.

it is literally like when you applied for university for the first time, the application process.

I recommend going on UCAS website they tell you the whole process!!

Hi FM2020

As Zeynepaydin1999 stated, you do need a personal statement which will be sent to your 3 choices. You can get a personal adviser to help you with this and the rest of your application through Get Into Teaching.

You can register online at https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/ or you can phone 0800 389 2500.

Best of luck with your application.

Sue
