Re: undecided on course selection

IOP is the most obvious one to me as they require research experience. UEA and Manchester are the other researchy unis! However I so agree with the comments on finding a uni that will suit you and where you want to train as if you don’t meet the course values you may struggle at interview and/or as ...

Re: Standardised academic reference 10 years post MSc

Can you find another referee e.g. did you do your ot training before or after your msc conversion. Do you have anyone who you have worked with where you have demonstrated some academic ability eg doing an audit or service evaluation?

Re: Pregnant, non-patient contact & bored!

I used to work for the same trust and you can sign up to the library and access Athens.

I would also second recommendation around doing service evaluations and audits.

Is there a ward psychologist if so could you speak to them to see whether they have any ideas?

Re: Study MSc or stay as an AP?

As you have a first Id say academically you are strong and so the masters won’t add as much as it would if you were academically weak. In my cohort at uni lots don’t have masters and those that do like me were academically weaker. The people I typically know who have got on to training quickest have...

Re: Reserve list for places 2020

I think the earlier the interview the more the reserve list for a place moves and the later the interview the more the reserve list for an in interview moves.

That said it does depend on the year and the uni and so on.

Re: Can you get onto the doctorate if you're bad at stats?

I agree with psypsy that when I got onto training I wasn’t great at stats and as I’m doing qualitative research I’m still not brilliant at them. I haven’t logged on to SPSS since 2006 so that would have been my last adventure in doing them! However, being on the doctorate I have learnt how to examin...

Re: Doctorate with children

The March teaching block does move around a bit as easter moves so you may find that it does clash at one point or another but that is unlikely to be the case throughout the three years.

Good luck with applying and admin are great so I’d drop them an email.

Re: Careers in maternal mental health?

Hello

Perinatal Mental Health services strikes me as being the most linked service. They tend to employ a number of different professionals including clinical psychologists.

I know there has been a huge amount of investment in this area recently.

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I wonder if part of the reason cov and Warwick is so high as they give feedback?

So they are a good bet if you have a ‘spare’ course so to speak?

Re: NHS vs Third Sector

If your goal is to get on the Dclin I’d say the biggest advantage to working in the nhs is continuous service. Having recently been of sick I had accrued 5 months full pay and 5 months half pay and I am nearly at the point of increasing my annual leave entitlement etc. Had I started the course with ...
