I'm hoping to get a place on SD salaried - but I'm not confident that I will from everything I've read. I wouldn't mind doing a PGCE, but I don't see how it's at all feasible unless I'm missing something. My required income each month is £1500 (rent and everything else). PGCE fees are most likely cancelled out by the £9000 bursary I would be eligible for. So I'd have to magically pull about £20,000 from somewhere to cover my living expenses while I study, is that correct? How do other people do it? I know I could get a part time job, but finding one to fit around my studies especially when I'm doing my placements will be difficult, and it won't earn me THAT much per month.
