It’s such a hard decision because there are so many colleges! It was a toss us between a few. The information pack on colleges that they sent you really helped me😀 the location, the buildings within the college and support that they have

I got an offer for biology yesterday and had my interview on the 2nd! A college with a high rate of other pgce students would be good as I know some accept more than others and would be good to have that support network! There’s too many to choose from

I think I've decided to go for New College as well! It looks so lovely and seems to have the best of everything. Have you got your Canvas log-in yet? I haven't got mine so wondering whether I should just email my college choice form to Matt.

Congratulations Yeah, the number of PGCE students is definitely a big factor in my decision I made a shortlist of 4 which really helped and then went from there. Such a hard decision!

My college only has 4 and it hasn't made any difference at all. you get to know your cohort so well that the support network is there via the PGCE bunch anyway. College is a formality for most on the PGCE because you probably won't spend much time in there. I only go into ours to collect my mail.

I didn’t get into New College I imagine it’s because I don’t need accommodation and they guarantee it. But I’ve asked to apply for St. Peter’s instead, which I am really happy with! Has anyone else heard from colleges?

Oh no! St. Peter’s is still really nice and closer to the restaurants and shopping centre so that will be nice! How long did it take for them to reply to you?

I applied to New in mid-December so it took about 12 weeks, but I guess there was also the Christmas holidays included in that which I don’t think counts. So around 8 weeks? Matt has said that I should expect to hear back from St. Peter’s in 8-10 weeks so I think that’s the timeline 😁

Hi all, I'm afraid for safety and privacy reasons TSR doesn't allow advertising of group chats on other platforms. As hopeful future teachers I won't need to go into detail about the importance of privacy, online safety and (ultimately) safeguarding.

I've put some further details about TSR and sharing social media in the spoiler below. If you have any questions please post them here.

Spoiler:
Show
So TSR holds a duty of care toward all its users, including many vulnerable users. Particularly as a site that is open to and actively welcomes young people. Ultimately, TSR wants to ensure they are protecting these users by ensuring that they aren't groomed or otherwise manipulated online. TSR has strict reporting and moderation processes in place, but other platforms do not. Therefore a common route for malicious individuals is to coax vulnerable users from TSR, onto another platform with less stringent reporting / moderation in order to exploit them more easily. As such, TSR has a blanket rule against promoting other social media platforms aside from signposting (rather than linking) sites and accounts that are intended to be helpful to users such as a university's facebook page or a youtube channel for maths help, etc.

Finally, please be aware that I do not represent TSR, am not a paid employee of TSR and am not responsible for the moderation that takes place on the site. Thank you.
