Overall opinion

I would definitely not recommend this university for MFL PGCE training

1 out of 10
Quality of course and lecturers

The PGCE training was a bad experience. The lecturers were nice and supportive apart from the tutor and my school mentor. They were not understanding, patient and were really harsh in their observations.They expected me to be an excellent teacher in only one month practice in the first school placement. Everything was my fault and not the pupils' fault. Most of us were sent in placements far away from home in depressing towns.

University life

Life Bath is very nice and safe but expensive and not vibrant like Bristol.

The accommodation in my first placement was very nice but very far away from my flat.Therefore, I had to pay two rents

Job prospects and careers service

The course didn't help me to find a job because of the lack of support.I was told I was not made for teaching 2 weeks before the end of the first placement and I didn't have the opportunity to do the second placement
