Re: Struggling to decide between conversion masters

Hi Pak Choi, I have a conversion MSc from Nottingham Trent University and just got offered a place on DClinPsy training. I've also held AP positions in private and NHS settings and been offered RA roles. I don't think where I studied had any more or less value than other universities during applicat...

Video Interviews

Hi all, Congrats to all who have been chosen for interview. In light of coronavirus this year, many courses seem to be considering alternative options for interview (or have chosen alternatives already) including platforms like Skype/Zoom Meetings. I just wanted to say CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT NOW. Does...

Re: Support work alternatives

Hi, I know of people who went into advocacy straight from undergrad and went onto AP roles. I don't really know of anyone doing this but I imagine being a community care officer in a social care team would give you experience of working in vulnerable populations, managing risk and dealing with safeg...

Re: Part time vs Full time conversion (Gloucester v Cardiff)

Absolutely! This is definitely a career path I would have chosen then had I known about it. They didn't offer psychology GCSE or A-level at my school or any in surrounding areas from what I gathered from friends. I didn't feel at all overwhelmed. That might have been due to me having a good few year...

Re: Part time vs Full time conversion (Gloucester v Cardiff)

Hi, English was my undergrad too - a classic "I don't know what to do with my life but I'm 18 and have to go to uni" choice. I did a 2-year part-time MSc conversion alongside being a support worker. I loved learning and thinking about theory and then seeing how it applied in practice in my job week-...

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Oh dear! My whole drive home from the test was horrible moments of realising I'd gotten easy questions wrong. I just couldn't think straight after a few questions threw me. And the added pressure of the time limit wasn't great. So likewise, I'm not holding out much hope! But at least I have a better...

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Someone I spoke to before the test said their supervisor was affiliated with the Surrey course and told them the SJT had been the best predictor of performance on training in the past so it is a big shame that it was not used. I wonder how this will impact the intake and whether they made other cons...

Re: Courses with Systemic Pathway

Hi, this is one of my interests too. A bit late to the party but I'll put this here for reference. Leicester include systemic teaching as one of their four theoretical models and "provide support for trainees interested in pursuing post-doctoral qualifications in systemic family therapy". Royal Holl...
