Re: teaching experience

Hi Charlie,
thanks for your answer !

It is a bit more complicated for me, I should have explained better - I am doing my PhD at a Research Institute based in a hospital, where we don't have any undergrad students. We have master students, but senior (clinical) staff are doing the teaching....

teaching experience

Hi all, I am in my last year PhD and looking at the job offers for teaching assistant/lecturer they all require you to have previous teaching experience ''at undergarduate level''. So how exactly to escape this catch 22 ? I am planing to do some PostDoc research after my PhD, but eventually I would ...

Re: The “truth” about doing a psychology degree

funny, but I would say I agree (from experience) with most of what the girl say: 1) most high school students have NO idea what is studied at BSc level (especially the stats, I too had no idea how much stats is involved) 2) it takes extremely long time to qualify - as long as a surgeon 3) it is extr...

Re: meta analysis for a PhD award

hey, thanks for the reply :) ''Remember you need to make an original contribution to knowledge.'' well, this is exactly my point- if there are arguments and different theories for example what is the cause of hallucinations (eg. genetic/neuro/environmental/etc.) and you do a meta- analysis on studie...

meta analysis for a PhD award

Hi all,
I know it is a stupid question, as it would depend on the supervisor and the department,
but do you think you can do a meta- analysis for a PhD award ? I mean without actual experiments and just analysing the existing data ? :)

Re: Is a masters necessary with a high 2:1?

not really, try to get some clinical experience, even if as a volunteer

having an MSc is nice, but in my opinion 1 year clinical experience would help you much more

Re: Full Time Masters and Full Time Job

Hi there, I did full time MRes at Manchester and had a full time job at the time - it was not easy, specially working late hours (sometimes till 4-5am) and then going to seminars at 9am, but it is not a big deal. I mean, if you want degree with distinction - not a good idea, I got just Pass, but I a...

Why women leave academia

I read this article today and (although I am a male) find it interesting, moreover I think the Academia for both genders is becoming more unattractive. The reasons are summarized in the article, but the main one as I see it is the money. You can barely survive with 16K scholarship in London for 3-4 ...

Re: where to live if in RHUL

Thanks Crochet, I am actually considering doing a PhD there, not the Clinical, so I might not need to be on campus every day, therefore still wondering whether it is worth it to live in Surrey, or commuting :) Actually had a look at the nearby areas, but "pretty pricey" is indeed the situation with ...

where to live if in RHUL

Hiya,
bit of a silly question, but where would you live if you are at RHUL? :)
I am not sure I want to live near the campus, thinking somewhere between the campus and Central London, but I am not sure how the transport goes ? Any ideas for a nice area?

Thanks

Re: Which Msc Program???

Hi cgdsylcn, I did the MRes at Manchester, but we had shared lectures in some modules with the Clinical MSc. Both are really interesting and I can recommend Manchester. It is very vivid city, with lots of things to do, really cheaper than London - I paid £240 per month for a nice large double room. ...
