Re: Any guidance or advice would be really appreciated.

23?? You are still a baby! In all seriousness, however, you have more than enough time to get the relevant qualifications and experience to pursue CP as a career!! Many people start along the CP path far later than you. As far as conversion courses go, choose the one that suits you best in terms of ...

Re: MSc BPS Accredited?

Did your original degree confer GBC? If it did, it will not matter if the MSc doesn't. If not, you wil need to obtain it via the MSc.l

Re: Registering with HCPC- International Route

Short answer, I'm afraid, is no. Judging from what you've written, you have no higher qualifications in psychology or formal training in any of the recognised practitioner roles. GBC does not qualify you to practice - it simply means you have a qualification that is robust enough to allow you to go ...

Re: Interview written activity

This might sound obvious, but sometimes the obvious gets overlooked! Do make sure that your spelling, grammar and punctuation are good when undertaking a written task. No matter how good your ideas, they need to be expressed clearly and correctly if they are going to help you get the post. Good luck.

Re: WARNING - SLV Intl / SLVolunteers / Sri Lanka placements

I suspect Maven is referring to children with a tan (note they talk about Instagram pictures of beaches) rather than to their skin colour.

Re: Your advice about my career - strange situation

Mind I got a low 2:2 (88) on my Bsc and a distinction (107) on my MSc, but because of my BSc marks I will not be accepted ever on a DClinPsy This is not true. There are SOME courses that will not accept you, but others will look at your MSc and see that as "making up" for a poor undergrad and still...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

It surprises me how some candidates were invited to the interview at one Uni but were rejected by one or more Universities. Why is it surprising? All universities have different entry criteria, whether at undergrad or postgrad level, and all clinical courses have different philosophies. Hence it's ...

Re: The Effects of Social Media on Interpersonal Comparison

I've done this, and can see it could have value as a topic, but the scenario involved was so short and banal I genuinely couldn't see the point or the utility of it! I'm sure you have your reasons for it, but it didn't make much sense to me. Still, I'll be interested to see what you come up with.

Re: Location of UEL tests

I'm afraid I have no idea where you have to go, but I think it's more than likely it will be signposted when you arrive. But, to be on the safe side, if nobody else is able to answer this I would suggest you arrive half an hour earlier than due and ask at reception. Good luck.

Re: struggling to find a job

Also, do not limit your applications to jobs in mental health. For one thing, not all of us work in mental health, but also, you can develop many applicable, transferable skills in jobs such as health care assistant which will give you a good start.
