    Hi there,

    I have a PGCE interview at Durham next week and they've asked me to look into which college I want to apply to and let them know on the day. I really don't know very much about the whole college system and was hoping some of you could share your thoughts.

    Ideally I'd like somewhere fairly down to earth, with a fair amount of other grad students. I guess location is quite important too.

    Thanks

    If you want to be around lots of other grad students, look into Ustinov. It's the only college that's fully post-grad.

    As far as location goes, you'll be about 20 minutes max from lectures and departments no matter what college you're at, so you probably won't need to worry about that much. Durham is small.

    Hild Bede has a load of postgrads too - as does Hatfield (though if you are looking at somewhere down to earth - the latter might be a bad idea)

    Hey there. Yeah the interview went ok. To be honest I really wasn't sure if i'd got it or not but a day or two later I was told I had an offer. Which subject are you applying for?
