Re: Pre-training experience in Australia?

Hi LeanneH, I went over to Australia for 6 months, and tried using connections in the UK to get some kind of psychology job over there, but had no luck. I ended up doing a couple of agency carer roles, which helped to fund my time out there (care workers get paid better in Oz than in UK) but you do ...

Completely unsuited to style of course, and again, underprepared. - year 4- 2 interviews, 1 rejection, 1 place from re...

Re: Hertfordshire - London fringe payment?

If there are any new Herts trainees who will be looking for a house share I'm planning to move within 5-10 miles of Hatfield.
When I search for house shares, all seem to be with 'students' and I'm not sure I can work full time and study in a house with undergrads!

Re: Waiting for news from Herts!

Hello!I'm on reserve list too. However, I'm wondering whether the list may not move much because it is so late in the interview "season". Does anyone know what date the interviews have been held in previous years? I suppose applicants with places may still be waiting for Royal Holloway re...
