I work in Education and Hibernia graduates are not regarded that well. The first few years had top quality people on the courses but the last few years are not as well regarded. This is a sweeping generalisation I know but that is the vibe out there. I am sure there are some top quality people on the course.
If you want to become a teacher, go to a recognised college full time. You will learn as much from your classmates as you will in lectures.
H.Dips are to become 2 year long programmes now rather than the 1 year add on of a few years ago.
I completely agree with you on this! Not worth spending all the money on doing a PDE online! Also just to the previous speaker, that wasn't a very good reason to support Hibernia!
The reason why I'm also against it is because people who literally scrape a 2:2 in their degrees get into that course! I know someone who got 2.48 GPA from UCD and ended up getting into it! Those people clearly don't know their field so how could they possibly be fit to teach?
It's a complete joke! They should do away with the course if you ask me! So unemployable compared to other proper PDE courses!
