I believe from this year, you have to apply on gov.uk, rather than on UCAS.

I started applying for it around this time of the year when i was in my final year of my degree.
Depending on the uni and the type of PGCE, you do have until July/August time. Some will close earlier if all spaces are filled up.

Oh god! My anxiety is rising, I have no idea about the application process and I just got a flash to look for Universities... I want to apply to UCL, KCL and Goldsmith University.
Would I need a personal statement?

I have contacted each of these Universities separately I dont think i will make it this year I feel like I have no knowledge about the application process.

No, you're not too late! Applications only opened a couple weeks ago.
And like i said, depending on the course and its popularity, do you have until August next year.

Honestly, you are better off taking longer with your application and submitting it a bit later on in the cycle than applying early with a rushed application and limited experience of schools.

What subject/age group would you be looking to teach?

It's been slightly hard getting into schools for work experience, however I have emailed into a few schools. I hope to hear back soon.

Primary school is the more competitive option, and they will expect experience with the age group you want to teach. If you can't get into schools, the next best option would be volunteering with a group like brownies or cubs, another youth group, or sports team etc.

It has been hard to get work experience but I suggest emailing every school you can because one will reply. Restrictions have eased a lot now compared to last year. I managed to get some experience at a lovely school in June/July and it gave me a lot to write about in my personal statement. I think that's crucial when applying for a pgce.

I got into UoB last year around March.. I sent my applicable in February. You have plenty of time. Relax.

Yes I did a personal statement, and yes, I applied through UCAS. Not sure if this has changed as the above posters have suggested?
