    Apologies - missed the primary part 🙈 whatever subject you think you’d like. Some people opt for Psychology- would imagine it to be very useful.

    Yes, like the idea of Irish and Psychology. I don't think I'll get the Primary points for Maynooth...DARE might help me, but if last year's points remain, I'll need a miracle.

    Don’t forget Primary in St Pats and Marino - points are usually lower. Put those as no 1-3 and then Arts as a back up and then do the PME. If you are not confident about getting Arts points, have a PLC as a back up and apply to arts through QQI next year. Lots of Arts places through QQI. Have every angle covered. You will get there 👍Register with the teaching council before your PME so you will be able to some subbing. Very best of luck.

    Should get over 500 so Arts should be ok. Be nice if Maynooth dropped... Will still keep all options covered though. Maynooth I can drive to, take a train or a bus. Would 4 years accommodation costs in Dublin win over a local PME? Trying to be sensible but don't want to be foolish either.

    Not sure whAt side of maynooth you live but is it possible for you to drive/bus to Marino/Pats. Hibernian PME is €30k so prob not a lot of difference between it and accommodation for 4 years. Accommodation may be cheaper outside if Dublin. Lots to think about. Best of luck..

    Hibernia fees are circa €7,500 p.a. plus €750 for the Gaelteacht. €16,500 for the course, and subbing while doing the PME would have it paid for by the time you graduate @daretodream.

    If you're doing a primary degree with a view to doing the PME, do something you love. Your passion for a subject will be an asset when you're applying for the PME and for jobs. Take some time out after your degree and sub to see if you like it?

    When do PME offers usually come out? Anyone have any idea?

    Has anyone studied Irish and Geography as part of their PMEPP with Hibernia? I’m looking for a sample timetable for the hours each lecture takes place before starting in a few weeks.

    Hi, does anyone know how many hours per week you’d be doing for the Pme in UL.

    Thanks 😊
