Re: Scrambled Eggs

Being realistic, it seems unlikely to me that you'd gain a clinical training post from Germany. The posts are sponsored by the nhs, and designed to staff the nhs with clinical psychologists. When there are 20 or more applicants per place, they will be selecting people with a clear understanding of h...

Re: Experience/Application Advice

Thank you for your response. Are you referencing any particular program based on the criteria you mentioned? From my research, I haven’t seen any programs which don’t emphasize experiences, grades to some degree, and research experience. That said, I have only looked at a select few at this point i...

Thank you.

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

Except that your low 2:1 would probably still have got you a first now, depending how long ago you graduated, because of the rampant grade inflation taking place.

You cannot recruit via the forum without following our pinned rules, which require you to name your ethical approval and supervisor. If you do not add this information to this thread I will remove your link.

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

I've increasingly heard of para-psychologists who have no training beyond their original degree and some experience in graduate roles being asked to fulfil autonomous roles doing direct therapeutic work with vulnerable people. How can a psych grad with a year of care work go into a school or a job c...

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

Pay close attention to how things are marked, discuss as much as possible with supervisors, read widely, and don't try to juggle too many extra curricular things as well as your academic work.

Re: Trying to get my head around auditing

Yup, you've got it. Only thing I'd add is that anything involving randomisation (eg whether a person gets allocated to an intervention or a control group) or a change of practise for the purposes of gaining knowledge is research and requires ethical approval, even when it is set within the context o...

Re: Working/volunteering during undergraduate degree

There are sometimes placements you can do over the summer holidays, or you could get paid bank or support work during this time, and then if you feel like it wouldn't compromise your degree you could drop it down to just one shift a week, perhaps at the weekend or one evening. My other half worked 8...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

While I am happy to have been offered two Assistant Psychologist interviews, I am frustrated and upset that I am going to have decline one of them as they are on the same day and at similar times. The locations are at least an hour and a half apart, meaning it just wouldn't be possible for me to go...

Re: Where to look for jobs

Indeed, Reed and other general recruitment sites get AP job adverts. St Andrews is a fairly large employer you haven't listed. Also jobs.ac for academic and research experience, and then google with your local town/county for care and support work to pick up residential care services for people with...

Re: How easy is it to get an HCPC registration for a clinical psychology masters from India?

I've interviewed Indian CPs applying for posts here (as both APs and CPs), and the training really doesn't cover the same things, and the role is quite different in practice too. During our training we do a doctoral level piece of research, and six 6-month placements that give a really wide range of...
