Re: What roles outside the UK have helped with your application

Hi agill, I am very happy to hear that! If you work with your Tier 2 visa for five years, you might become eligible to apply for an IRL. If you have IRL, you can apply to the doctorate courses as a home student and won't have to pay incredibly high fees.
Keep up the good work and good luck!

Re: What roles outside the UK have helped with your application

I don't really know much about the competitiveness of individual courses but there are numbers for others, too. I believe they are similar. Although I understand just taking numbers at the face value wouldn't do enough justice as international places usually end up not taken. But there are many reas...

Re: What roles outside the UK have helped with your application

Hi, I am (about to be) a newly qualified psychologist who took the self-funding route as an international trainee. I would like to clarify a few points regarding the self-funded places. 1) There are only a number of courses who accepts self-funded trainees. As of 2020 this is only 12 courses out of ...

Re: Locum CP Work and Bank CP Work

Thanks, Miriam. I had a chance to learn about the conditions for being employed through an agency and being bank staff. It apparently can change context to context but in this case locum work was indeed came with considerably higher pay. Fortunately, the NHS trust just gets the referral from the age...

Re: Qualified in psychology abroad and want to work in the UK?

Hi agill, As a person who walked the same steps, I must say that unfortunately, it would be nearly impossible for you to be employed if your employer needs to obtain a visa for you. This is because of current immigration rules. The only way to employ a non-UK/EU person is to prove that this post was...

Locum CP Work and Bank CP Work

Hi everyone, Is there any difference between locum CP and bank CP roles? I was offered a job as locum but when talking about the details it came up that going to bank route might help starting faster. However, I am not sure whether there is any difference between both (in terms of salary, expense cl...

Re: Social justice and psychotherapy

I think there’s a single tangible reality out there, which can be empirically verified, and that it is incumbent on us to remain as aligned with this reality as possible.
I just have one question: who gets to decide which of the multiple versions of a reality is the real reality?

Re: How did people pay rent and support themselves doing a counselling psychology doctorate ?

People I know are doing it part-time and in the past it was possible to take the independent route (without enrolling at a university), and you wouldn't receive the title "dr" but still become a "counselling psychologist". I don't know whether it is still possible to do that.

Re: Major amendments on research thesis

I think late graduation due to major corrections is quite high, too. I am now doing my final placement in a Trust employing trainees from a variety of courses for their specialist placements. We have a dedicated trainee space and naturally we talk to each other in the office. We share how things are...

Re: Stuck with doctorate course choices!? RHUL/IoPPN/Herts/Essex

Advice on courses' orientations: If you're more CBT oriented, you might consider choosing RHUL and IOPPN If you're more social constructivism oriented, consider choosing Essex. I don't have information on Herts course. However, consider your application and previous academic ahchievements while choo...

Re: Opinion on thieves and other low-grade crime committers

I use the same approach I use for racists (especially working class disadvantaged people). The way they behave might be understandable, but that doesn't excuse their actions as other people come into harm's way because of it.

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

I would say Essex. I would say its ethos is similar to Salomons and uel. First-year CBT and psychodynamic teaching (at Tavi). Second-year systemic teaching and a little bit CBT and psychoanalytic (very little). Placement wise, it can be varied though. My first placement was purely CBT, but in my sec...
