We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
I’m enrolled for 2017-2018 PGCE. WHEN SHould I expect the start date for the programme and the deadline for fees?
Congratulations on your offer to train to teach. You will be sent pre-course materials in the summer so that you have all the information you need for starting in September.
We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Birmingham in September.
Can we expect to receive further information regarding the course, school dates, location of placement school in the coming weeks?
Yes you will receive any pre-course materials a few weeks ahead of your course from the programme administrator.
If you have any further questions, please do let me know.
Are the placements for primary education only in birmingham or could they be in the rest of the West Midlands like Wolverhampton or Dudley?
