Thank you for attending the PGCE interview at Brunel University recently [16th November]. As you may have seen in the national press and as was brought to your attention at interview, the TDA have not yet announced the funding or allocation of training places for 2011 and therefore we are unable to make any offers to study at Brunel on a TDA funded course at the present time. This situation is the same for all institutions in the UK and your application is not being disadvantaged by this delay. Following your interview, we are still very much interested in your application and as soon as our allocation and funding has been confirmed, we will be in touch to confirm whether we are able to make you an offer of a place on the course. We are expecting this to be early in the New Year. We do apologise for the delay and will be in contact as soon as we hear from the TDA. Anyone else got an email like this through? Just slightly concerned if it is finally a no that other institutions will have filled their places whilst I've been waiting on this decision.
