    Hi everyone,

    Anyone out there applying for PGDE 2016 intake? I'm in the process of completing my application - does anyone know when the interviews will be if application is successful and what format the interviews take?

    Thank you

    Hi Miss Ali

    I have recently decided to apply however I have heard from someone who did the PGDE primary last year at Glasgow Uni and was told by 14th December she had a place so a little worried that I am leaving it late! Are you thinking of Primary or Secondary? I am going to apply for Secondary (science) to become a teacher of the Deaf.

    Yep, I've applied and have my interview with Glasgow Uni (my uni) on the 14th and Strathclyde on the 17th.
    I've already had two interviews in London (where I'm originally from, but I've lived in Glasgow for 8 years) and been offered a place at both.
    I know Glasgow uni are doing interviews between December and March and all applicants will know by March 31st, I don't know about Strathclyde's deadlines though. Glasgow's interview is apparently: an introduction by School of Education staff, a group discussion, a written task and an individual interview. Strathclyde's interview is: a presentation by the Course leader, an individual interview of around 15 minutes and a short written task of 250 words. This all seems pretty standard I think.

    Oh, and I'm aiming for Primary.

    Hi Seryph
    Good luck for tomorrow! Let me know how you got on!
    I have decided after a long battle with myself that it is primary teaching that I wish to do, with the deaf in particular! I have almost finished with my application, just waiting on my referee confirming his email address as it doesn't seem to be saving for me.
    Can I ask a question though about the application? It asks for your choices of Uni's and so I started putting in strathclyde, then Glasgow and then WoS however when I look at my application as a whole, it has put Glasgow up top, with Strathclyde underneath, then WoS at the bottom. It hasn't prioritised my choice. Did this happen with anyone else? And if so how did you correct it?
    Good luck Seryph for the 17th also. How much notice did you get given for the interview?

    Thanks! I think I got two weeks notice on it, just waiting to hear back now.
    I think it just displays them alphabetically? I only applied to Glasgow and Strathclyde on the undergrad system so it's hard to tell.

    So how did you get on? Have you heard back yet?

    Yeah, I've heard back. Strathclyde said no. I'm still waiting to hear from Glasgow though and I've got a place waiting for me on a SCITT PGCE in London, so at least I have that.

    Hi Clairebear808.
    That's great news. Good luck! I was unsuccessful with Strathclyde this year for the application stage as they say I have lack of experience.
    Glasgow Uni have asked me for an interview in a couple of weeks so trying to study up for it.
    Seryph, have you heard anything back from Glasgow Uni?

    I have an interview next week with Strathclyde. Not heard back from Glasgow, or UWS as of yet. I am so nervous for this interview.
    Can anyone elaborate on the written task?
