Re: Masters or not? Experience and postgraduate certificate under my belt.

Hi guys, thank for all your replies. Having a long hard think I thought I'd go for the masters, I feel like it will set me up well for the doctorate and with PG loans available now I guess this will help with funds. Happy to say I went for an interview and have a place for a master's starting this S...

Since then I've got a lot of experience and was always putting off completing a master's due to the funding and other roles popping up at the time of enrollmen...

HI training - 2 full years with PWP qualification? Previous experience?

Hi guys I had a question with regards to applying on the HI training. At the moment you need two years post qualification as a pwp to apply through KSA route. However what about my previous 1.5years working as an AP? Would this at all count towards the 2 years experience or are those 1.5 years autom...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

This is a very much so interesting thread. I'm currently finishing my PWP training and have actually been offered an interview for said role of CAP in Exeter. However I'm disillusioned around the differences between the two roles. For myself I wanted to move less away from a therapy heavy role due t...

Re: Surrey/Salomons live chat past papers

Hi everyone

I'm confused, is there a transcript, people are requesting but didn't see if anyone had taken one? If so would it be possible at all to have a copy? :oops:

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

I received my reply from both Surrey and Christchurch this morning, ten minutes apart from each other! Although I've been invited to Christchurch selection tests, I was not accepted for Surrey which is a shame :( bit confused about it since looking at the entry criteria they pretty much the same.
