I am in my first year at University, and predicted a 2:1. I currently study Education Studies and Sociology - however I am seeking a transfer to a different University that I believe will provide me with better challenges and offer me more. The university I currently attend is extremely small, and does not have a high budget to provide students with placements around the country etc. Which I believe would benefit me greatly to explore the world around me. I am extremely interested in social sciences, and will be doing a PGCE in it after my undergraduate study. Additionally to this, I really love the independent sector, and despite only attending my local state school, I am apprehensive as to whether my application in a few years would even be considered. I have average GCSE and A-Level results (2 A* and 2Cs), and I seek clarification as to whether I would even get a look in. However, I am debating a gap year before my PGCE to gain teaching experience around the world, for example in Africa or France, and I am wanting to do a Masters Degree in Education too. Thank you in advance.
