Re: UEA 2012

so how does UEA work exactly? You all seem to be based all over the place...the university is in Norwich isn't it? I was always a little put off as I am not keen on Norwich itself (sorry, do not mean to offend - just some bad experiences there) but it sounds like one could easily not live in Norwic...

Re: BPS membership

I am not a member of the BPS. However, I have noted a couple of jobs being advertised on NHS jobs recently that specified that you had to be a member of the BPS. This specification was written on the preapplication questions page. One post, I put down "no" and was not able to apply. Howeve...

Re: Inpatient work

Re: unsuccessful applications experiences?

RobinWall - is that a general all-emcompassing list that you have observed in others, or things that have specifically held *you* back?

Re: unsuccessful applications experiences?
