  • I’m pretty nervous about whether or not I’ll get an offer. By my reckoning, I have 43 points. UCD last year was 42, so I’m worried that it’ll go up. I can’t seem to find the points for previous years anywhere, does anyone know where I can find them? Thanks!

    Attached is the 2019 round 2 points. Just to note those with the * mark were not all offered places. As far as i am aware if candidates are on equal points it’s random/lottery type selection. Have you applied for Trinity, DCU or Hibernia?




  • Has anyone completed the PME languages interview in UL or in any other college ? I have my interview this week and feel like I am going in blind.

    Have you completed Interview yet? was there many general questions or were they all language specific? I’m Business and Accounting - awaiting interview date




  • DCU PME PP offers are out today. Delighted to have got a place for Sept 2021. Best of luck to everyone.

  • Congratulations, I have been also! Have you been able to accept and pay your deposit? I get an error when I do that, do you also need to fill out the teaching council form for your particular subject?

    Congrats to you too! There seems to be a problem accessing to pay the deposit, i’m sure it will be rectified in a day or two. Yeah, i think we will have to refill out the forms for the teaching council as they have different criteria for 2023 onwards (that’s when we will be finished the course) Suppose easier complete the forms now and not have to worry about credits etc down the line




  • The PAC offers are coming out "from tomorrow". So best of luck to everyone who applied to NUIG, UCC, UCD or NUIM!

    Depends on where you're doing it. Hibernia is €15,000 iirc.

  • Been thinking of applying for the PME for a long time and think the time is right now. Working in marketing makes me want to jump out the top window!

    I need to do my Irish though. I have an Ordinary B from 2007. So hopefully can do the honours then this year.

    Considering Hibernia or Froebel in Maynooth as Im in West Wicklow/Kildare. Are there any other PME's other than Hibernia that arent full time?




  • Hibernia is full-time. It's just more flexible than the traditional universities because the hours are at night and weekends. You are still doing the full PME course over two years.





  • Any chance of a former PME student selling a second hand copy of Teaching Today by Geoff Petty?





  • I have a quick question for anyone starting a PME. Did you get a second invitation to Garda Vetting recently? I got one this evening and I have no idea why. I have already been through this entire process and wasn't told of any issues. Why would they ask me to do it all again? I will call them in the morning but until then - any ideas?





  • @Kirby Puckett Sorry, I'm unsure what you mean by second invitation?


    Your college will send you the initial invite, you have to complete some details and submit these and then the invite will come from the Garda Vetting Bureau.


    If you got that invite twice, then yes, that's odd, the bureau should be able to sort that out for you.





  • I got the original invitation in July, signed and uploaded the documentation and got the disclosure a few weeks later.

    Then, a few days ago, I got a slight variation on the original invitation urging me to sort out vetting before Teaching Practice. Apparently it's some sort of glitch relating to registration and not, as I had assumed, a problem with my vetting personally.





  • Ah, that makes more sense, sorry for my confusion, I'm glad it's all sorted.
