Re: English person applying to Ireland

Don't apply to the PSI! It's not necessary, honestly. If you have GBC in the UK, you're fine!

You're grand to apply to Ireland - the psychological society of Ireland (PSI) has reciprocal agreements with the BPS for undergraduate courses. Good luck!

I would definitely formally appeal - it's unacceptable the course had conflicting info and didn't bring it to your attention! Good luck!

Re: Applying to Bath

Hi, I applied to Bath a couple years ago, and the fact I didn't have A-levels (I did secondary school outside of UK) meant I got penalised in the points system (despite a 1st and master's, and a couple years experience). Based on that, I would never try again! Your situation is different, so can't b...

Re: Talking about complex ideas in simple words

My work: I work with young people who get scared when eating. They worry about food and how their bodies look. They also feel sad and scared a lot. Their bodies become too small and don't work well.

Re: A-Levels question

is there a possibility that my a-level results will have a negative impact on my future doctorate applications, or will it be university specific? Hi Danny, It will depend on the course, so it's worth looking at each course's requirements. You can find these on the clearing house or at eahc course'...

Re: Developing skills for one-off/short-term therapeutic wor

I've noticed that my biggest weakness is providing support to patients I've only just met. I can get very awkward and tongue-tied, and it can take a week or two for me to build a warm genuine rapport with someone. This isn't ideal when said patient is only going to be with us for a week!
