Glasgow has been named as one of the world’s top 10 cities by the Lonely Planet travel guide. The city was chosen for its exciting, contemporary image. Glasgow is one of the coolest and most stylish cities in the UK. The city centre is built on a grid system with amazing examples of both Victorian and contemporary architecture. Forget about castles, kilts, bagpipes and tartan. You come for the cocktails, cuisine and designer chic (plus the legendary native wit). Scotland’s biggest city has shaken off its shroud of industrial soot and shimmied into a sparkling new designer gown. The cosmopolitan spirit of the city emerges from a lively mixture of bars, restaurants, clubs, shopping, music and exhibitions. Glasgow’s nightlife is hugely popular – there is always something going on. If you’re the industrious type, this also means a lot of opportunities for part-time work. In Gaelic, Glasgow is Ghlaschu, meaning ‘dear green place’. With more than 70 parks and gardens within its boundaries, Glasgow more than lives up to its name. Lonely Planet’s Best In Travel 2009 Vibrant Cultural Scene Glasgow is host to some of the most exciting arts and cultural activities in the world and is identified with innovative architecture, art and design. The city is home to over 200 cultural organisations, including Scottish Opera, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the world-renowned Citizens Theatre. There are 26 public art galleries and museums. The RSNO Summer Proms, West End Festival, Glasgow International Jazz Festival, Hogmanay Celebrations and Celtic Connections are just some of the vibrant annual events which reinforce Glasgow’s reputation as one of Europe’s leading cultural capitals. 4 1.

From innovative design outlets to indoor malls like Buchanan Galleries, Princes Square and the St Enoch Centre, there’s plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Lively Nightlife You can choose from over 800 bars/pubs, 30 nightclubs and 51 cinema screens. In terms of food, Glasgow was voted top UK city outside London for choice and quality of restaurants by Harden’s Top UK Restaurants. Regular events such as Gourmet Glasgow promote the city’s restaurant scene and provide excellent value for money. Excellent Transport Links Domestic and international transport links are first-class. Glasgow Airport is 20 minutes from the city centre and offers daily flights to European and transatlantic destinations. It’s just 50 minutes by train to Edinburgh and less than an hour’s drive to some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery and a range of outdoor sports facilities, including skiing, climbing, windsurfing, sailing and of course, world-class golf courses. 6 2 Inverness Aberdeen Dundee Perth Glasgow Edinburgh Manchester Birmingham London 1.

With the advent of cheap flights it’s never been easier to travel to the many exciting destinations Europe has to offer. Using Glasgow as your base you’ll find that most destinations are within 2-3 hours flying time from Glasgow. Ideal for a weekend break or short vacation. 2 Highlights include: Barcelona - Spain One of the world’s most dynamic and stylish cities - always on the cutting edge of architecture, food, fashion and music. Prague - Czech Republic One of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. Traditional pubs and eateries augmented by gourmet restaurants, trendy cafes and clubs. Rome - Italy It’s hard to say what you’ll find most exciting about the Eternal City - the opulence of the Vatican, the Forum, the Colosseum. Rome is unique. Paris - France From romance along the Seine to wonderful galleries and museums, the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysees. Paris is the essence of all things French. 3 8 Information on the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education for International Students Information for International Applicants Since 1990, the University of Strathclyde has trained more than 700 Canadian and other overseas teachers creating a network of Strathclyde graduates throughout Canada and the rest of the world. Students studying for the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) in Elementary Education (Primary) and High School Education (Secondary) come from across Canada, the USA, India, South Africa, Nigeria, Tunisia and other parts of the world. Before applying you may wish to consult your Ministry of Education to ensure that the PGDE programme is recognised in your particular province or state. ‘Being a Canadian student here at Strathclyde, I feel that I have definitely made the right choice in coming to Scotland. It seemed a rather daunting prospect at first but from day one I was made to feel welcome from both staff, and fellow students’. Graduate, University of Guelph, Canada ‘I chose Strathclyde School of Education because of the amount of subjects offered in their Secondary course, compared to the smaller British Teachers’ colleges. I feel I made the right decision’. ‘My decision to enrol in the PGDE (Secondary) course at Strathclyde was guided by the assurances of members of the Faculty of Education at both Queen’s University and U.W.O. that the school was of a highly reputable standard. After six months of study, I am confident in making the same assurances’. Graduate, Queen’s University, Canada ‘I made the best decision of my life to study at Strathclyde. The quality of the teachers, school placements and support is all excellent’ Graduate, Towson University, USA Graduate, University of Toronto, Canada ‘Attending the PGDE Primary course at the University of Strathclyde was one of the best educational and life decisions I have made. The course challenged me and helped define me as a teacher and educator. I was also able to combine by passion for teaching with my desire for adventure and to travel. My qualifications are convertible across many countries and fuel my passion to educate and inspire on an international scale. I will treasure my time in at Strathclyde, the friends that I have made and my education for the rest of my life.’ Elizabeth Kuzyk, Graduate, Canada General requirements for both Primary and Secondary Beyond academic qualifications, evidence of having worked with young people, or the public, good interpersonal skills, and an understanding of primary and secondary education will be viewed favourably. The Admissions team also place an emphasis on interpersonal skills as demonstrated during the interview – see Interview section overleaf. Primary You should have a good Bachelor’s degree (Ordinary or Honours) from a Canadian university, other university overseas or equivalent. You must provide proof of studies in English and Mathematics (e.g. currently Grade 12 English and Grade 12 Mathematics in Ontario; CEGEP (2nd year) English and CEGEP (2nd year) Mathematics in Quebec; Grade 12 English and Grade 12 Mathematics in other provinces). Secondary You should have a good Bachelor’s degree (Ordinary or Honours) from a Canadian or other university overseas. Students will qualify in one teachable and your first degree must contain specific subject study which is relevant to the intended teaching qualification. It must also be of appropriate breadth and depth for teaching the subject in secondary schools. As a general rule the teaching subject will represent approximately one third of the total study in each academic year for three years. If your timetable during the PGDE course permits, you may attend classes in another teachable and attendance will be recorded. However attendance at classes alone will not qualify you to teach the second subject and additional school placement experience may be required when you return home, in order to allow you to teach both subjects. Information on the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education for International Students Can I do a joint course in Primary and Secondary Education? It is presently not possible to do a joint primary and secondary teaching Professional Graduate Diploma. You must choose either primary or secondary. Student profile The majority of students on both courses are Scottish. Canadians and other international students make up between 5% and 10% of the student body. At Strathclyde as a whole, 15% of the student population come from outside the UK. How to apply? There are various ways in which you can apply for the course. It is possible to apply directly to the university by completing an online application form and further information about how to do this can be found on the university website: www.strath.ac.uk. You can also speak to staff in the Education Courses Support Team who can advise you on how to apply directly: firstname.lastname@example.org If you are Canadian you might wish to contact one of our representatives to request an application form, further information and support. Our overseas representatives may be found here: www.strath.ac.uk/rio/prospective/ reps/ The PGDE programme starts during the last week of August. Applications received after April may not be considered until the following year. Interviews Members of the Strathclyde team meet prospective students and conduct interviews in Toronto, Canada in October, January and March / April. The aim of our visits is to give you more information about the course by means of a presentation and to determine if you are suited to teaching by holding a personal interview. You will meet with members of the teaching staff at Strathclyde as part of the selection procedure. In the personal interview they will be interested in your personality, communication skills, commitment to and perception of the role of the teacher, subject expertise and knowledge, and extracurricular interests. What you should do if you are given an Offer of Study If successful at interview you should receive an Offer of Study letter from the University of Strathclyde shortly afterwards which you should sign and return along with your deposit of £2,000 to confirm your place of study at the university. This deposit is required upfront from students under the UK Government’s points-based system of immigration regulations and is deducted from your tuition fees. With your Offer of Study letter you will also receive further information on the process and a detailed breakdown of the amount the Entry Clearance Officer will expect you to show evidence of when you apply for your student visa (balance of tuition fee, accommodation rent and daily living costs for the period of study). You will also be sent an application form for university accommodation which you should return to Strathclyde. Once we have received your deposit of £2,000 we will issue you with a Certificate of Acceptance of Study (CAS) which you can then use to obtain a student visa. Please check www.strath.ac.uk/sees/infoint for the most up-to-date information on visas and immigration. It is vitally important that you begin the visa application process as soon as you receive the Certificate of Acceptance of Study (CAS). This can, at times, be a lengthy process and a delay in obtaining your visa may lead to you being unable to register for the course in time. Your £2,000 will be refunded if a visa is refused or if the university subsequently withdraws its offer. Please note that you should apply for your visa in plenty of time as it can often take longer than the published processing times during the busy summer months. You must arrive and register for the course no later than 10 days after the course start date, otherwise you may have to defer and reapply for the following year. Documentation to arrange before you leave home Each student must provide a full police report obtained from the police in their local area. Without this students would be unable to proceed on any placement in a Scottish school. Please note that a general report often specifically excludes the vulnerable sector and it is vital that the report should show a full police check. Accommodation If you are accepted on to the PGDE course you can apply for a place in Student Residences on the John Anderson Campus. Residences comprise single study bedrooms with access to catering, laundry and café/restaurant facilities. Housing contracts for campus accommodation will coincide with the dates of the PGDE course. For up-to-date details of fees contact the Accommodation Office. e: student.accommodation@strath. ac.uk w: www.strath.ac.uk/accommodation Private Rented Accommodation Graduate students often prefer to look for accommodation in the private rented sector. Finding a room or flat can be difficult, but you should be able to secure accommodation as you will be arriving at least one month before the regular academic year begins which puts you at an advantage. Rent varies greatly, but you should expect to pay £250-£350 per month in a shared flat, plus bills for heating etc. Assistance and advice for those seeking accommodation in the private sector are available at our Accommodation Office (email: student.accommodation@strath. ac.uk). While you are looking for accommodation, temporary housing is usually available at competitive rates in the City Centre. Students who are accompanied by partners who wish to stay in self-contained accommodation can expect to pay £400 - £600 per month for a one bedroom flat. Excellent Student Support The School of Education places great emphasis on supporting international students – as does the University of Strathclyde as a whole. The School of Education emails students once they have accepted their Offer of Study to advise them of pre-arrival issues and to confirm details of the welcome programme. Students usually arrive during the week prior to the start of the PGDE program. Students with an accommodation contract for Student Residences can usually get in to their room the week prior to the start of the programme. On arrival in Scotland students should make their own way to campus. Directions and information may be found here: www.strath.ac.uk/visiting You will be given an orientation programme on the Thursday / Friday prior to the start of the PGDE course to introduce you to staff and to welcome you to the university and to the City. During your stay, you can seek advice from the advice team. The team can offer advice on a number of issues including, among others, visas, health, course work, travel, finance, and any other assistance you need in settling in. In most institutions the student support ends once the classes start. Not at Strathclyde. The Advice Team in Student Experience offers a programme of social activities and weekly informal meetings for all international students. To find out about these activities as well as what is going on around campus, send your email address to: email@example.com You can contact the Advice Team in Student Experience: e: firstname.lastname@example.org w: www.strath.ac.uk/sees Tuition fees, scholarships and living costs (please note that these are based on current figures and will vary form year to year) Tuition fees for 2011/12 are £9,800.

Core provision comprises the following modules: On campus, this module will be taught primarily in distinct sector groups. Within the Primary route, there will be separate PPL lectures and tutorials, while within the Secondary route classes will be taught predominantly in subject specific groups. Additionally, there will be some cross-sector classes and cross-curricular classes. Pedagogy and Placement Learning (PPL) 40 credits Educational Studies 40 credits Pedagogy and Curriculum (P and C) 40 credits Pedagogy and Placement Learning Module (PPL) This module will be experienced partly on campus but predominantly in schools. Its purpose will be to enable you to become an effective teacher who promotes learning by being aware of appropriate pedagogical strategies, including the use of assessment as a tool for learning. In schools, you will observe teachers within classes, work with them on a cooperative basis, prepare and teach lessons under teacher supervision and receive advice on how you might develop your classroom practice. Tutors will also observe your teaching and will provide one-to-one post-lesson tutorials.

Money has been allocated from Scottish Government to provide a Coordinator within each authority or cluster group and a system to 12 Educational Studies Module Within the Educational Studies module, you are encouraged to discuss and to reflect on the principles underlying the work of all teachers e.g. assessment, classroom management and the concepts involved in effective teaching and learning. However, these issues cannot and must not be separated from the wider educational and socio-economic climate in which schools operate and it is therefore important that you also understand some of the historical, psychological and philosophical bases which underpin effective education provision in the 21st century. The Educational Studies module, in conjunction with other course modules, provides a sound conceptual and practical base for beginning teachers – a solid foundation which can be built on during continuing professional development. A menu of option classes is also offered as part of this module covering a range of pertinent issues. These topics will be delivered by staff with 13 Structure of the PGDE Course continued specific research interests and expertise in the areas offered. The normal format for teaching this module will be a lecture to the whole cohort followed by tutorial classes comprised of a mixture of primary students with secondary students from various subject disciplines. Pedagogy and Curriculum Module (P&C) Although this module is presented in the context of the Scottish educational system, it is intended to equip you to teach in any system. The module will examine what is taught in Scottish schools; how it is taught; how it is assessed and how we use assessment to promote learning. The P&C module and the PPL modules will complement and supplement each other. Within the Primary route, the prime function of the P&C module will be to familiarise students with the content of the various areas which comprise the primary curriculum. Within the secondary route, the prime function of the modules for each teaching subject will be to provide the background in the subject and the appropriate classroom skills required of the specialist subject teacher Professional E-Portfolio The E-Portfolio has been devised to support your learning and to contribute to best practice in placement schools. During the PGDE course you will be expected to keep a reflective portfolio of 14 your progress. You will keep the portfolio electronically within the University’s virtual learning environment.
