Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Surrey Salomons Hertfordshire Southampton For those that were unsure by the email -it would appear that it was confusingly worded (at least to me). I read "so we may contact you at a later stage if an interview place becomes available" to mean that I was on the reserve list. However this is not the...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Salomons Surrey Hertfordshire Southampton Anyone know, historically, how much the Surrey reserve list has moved? My recollection is that it's not likely to be much, as they are one of the first to interview. Can anyone confirm that my recollection is correct? Hi there, were you told in your e-mail ...

Re: Talking about complex ideas in simple words

My current job I work in a team that tries to help old people when they have problems with their memory, and can't live in their own homes. These people can forget their friends and family or how to talk, eat or get dressed. Their bodies are often sick too, and they need help to look after themselve...

Re: FT or PT masters? Stuck!

It was fine as long as I planned it in. I might have struggled had someone suggested it last minute, but then again, I think most people would. I had a dilemma as well. In my uni, all psychology masters courses shared some common courses, and I had 2 close friends who picked different masters full t...

Re: FT or PT masters? Stuck!

Hmm stress levels- they varied really. Obviously at times of deadlines they got quite high. Similarly, if work was stressful, there were times in lectures that I didn't feel I got everything out of them that I could (In that one hour block) However, deadlines at least were easy to plan around -I was...

Re: FT or PT masters? Stuck!

To offer an alternate perspective -I did my masters part time at the uni of sussex. From my experience, there were some real pro's and con's that you have already touched on before. I went straight into the masters from undergrad at the same uni, as did the majority of my cohort. That meant in year ...

Re: Do you need to drive for all PWP posts?

Exactly what Baa said -I have worked in services where the PWP's don't move from the same office all day. In others, they might be in one place one day, another the next. Personally -I've never heard of any where PWP's move around too much within the same working day, but I have a limited knowledge....

Re: Surrey / Salomons Exam

I don't think we'll hear until after the 31st, the deadline for applications. I read online that people should have been notified by the 3rd, and the test is on the 11th. It was a quick turn around last year -If you are confident that you have met the entry criteria, I might recommend starting any r...

Re: Part-time MSc with U of Edinburgh and Working Full/Part

I did exactly this - worked as a carer in a nursing home full time (3-4 12 hour shifts a week) plus studying for an MSC in foundations of clinical and mental health psych. It is do-able. The benefits I found were that I was able to pay off my MSc as I went along ( I was living at home so had little ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) Form is in. I thought I would feel this overwhelming sense of a weight being lifted, but instead I can't stop looking back over it wondering if I could have phrased something differently or done more. 2) Trying to hold onto the fact that it is only my second application, and I did better than I h...

Re: Courses with selection tests - no personal statement

Royal Holloway doesn't do tests but apparently they don't look at your personal statement Out of interest what do Royal Holloway look at? My understanding was they looked at degree classification and further qualifications, research/publications etc and work experience. I would imagine the same is ...
