I'm studying the same course but in Ireland, LYIT.
Would do anything to get to study abroad for a year! I know we have a few Spanish people over for this semester but I'd prefer to get into america. Definitely going to check it out!

I have been away studying primary teaching for almost two years now only across the water in Wales.
I wish I genuinley felt that way about it. To cut a long story short Im quite homesick. I would have trained at home only I fell short of the points required.
I found it difficult when I first came and even after making some great friends, taking up other interests and looking after myself in general. Now, I am physically tired of it. I gave it a chance and embraced the experience because I want to be positive about it.
I feel I given it a good shot and if there was a way of transferring home optional then I think I would take it.
I am doing very well in my course. I am happy to get on and make the most of the rest of the year. I haven't had any bad experiences here and there is nothing tremendous going on at home. I talk myself round every with this but I wake up the next morning with a dim feeling.
I have to either get on with it or do something to change it.
So recommended to me by a respected ex-principle and director on the board, I did. During the summer I mailed a course director in an irish training college to see if I could transfer into 2nd year of the course at home. They had never come across this query before and were keen to look into it. I have honours irish and a year of my course completed with above average results. It was possible to catch up on the amount of gaelacht weeks. Between a few other people and myself research was looking positive untill the final answer came back. It would be possible to transfer, if I obtained the cao points for that the year of entry for that year group as that would be fair to other students who applied in that year. I was grateful for the support in looking into my case, but gutted.
However, I will be 23 starting my 3rd year in September so I will be considered a mature student. I believe mature students are exempt from the points system. I will have two years behind me and 10 weeks teaching practise.I am thinking of appealing my case. I really don't want to come across annoyingly persistent after their help but I feel that their numbers in the year group may have dropped as there are always people who decide teaching is not for them. I'm not intending taking anyone's place who could potentially get on the course just replacing someone . I've taken the inniative to train elsewhere in the meantime if the points system is getting in the way when it isn't relative, its a shame.
Do I have a case or am I going to get a 2nd kick in the teeth by setting myself up to ask again?

Going to Glasgow in September to do an MLitt in nineteenth century art history.
I don't know anyone there and have never been to Scotland before... really apprehensive!

If anyone has any questions, drop me a pm (because I wish there had been someone to ask who had done it before when I was researching it and making the jump)

Wouldnt mind that myself actually. Wouldnt recommend derby to anyone, the course itself is grand, the college and the area would wreck ones head.
