1st year applying for me! I'm 36 and have had career changes along the way, so this is the first time I've felt truly ready for this process.

My heart is in the Highlands, so...

Edinburgh (test and questions completed)
Glasgow

Fingers crossed and good luck!
Not meant to be this year!

hi I haven't heard anything from Leeds either and nothing from Edinburgh. guessing this is bad news...

Re: Can you get onto the doctorate if you're bad at stats?

Hi, I have only made my first application to the course this year so there will be other people who can give you a more definitive answer, however you will be expected to have a graduate level knowledge of statistics. I don't see any way to avoid this. The Leeds Clearing House website provides compr...

Re: Health Psychology doctorate without an MSc in Health Psychology

Hi, I did an MSc in Health Psychology last year and loved it. It's true that you do need to complete stage 1 and 2 training to become a chartered health psychologist, however there are certain universities that incorporate both in doctoral training. Glasgow Caledonian and Nottingham both offer this ...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Well done to all those who have so far been offered interviews and I hope those who have received a 'no' are not feeling too disheartened. You are all still in the game! This is my first application so I couldn't fully appreciate before now just how much of yourself you give to this process. It take...

Re: MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care 2016

ukstern - don't know if it helps at all, but I didn't have any clinical experience when I applied for the course and the rest of the current cohort seems to be quite a mix of experience.

Re: MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care 2016

Thanks! And I had the same debate as I live in Edinburgh - I was lucky enough to get an NHS Lothian placement, but if you drive then Fife, Glasgow and Tayside would be almost commutable. It's so difficult having to negotiate all this potential moving about - good luck to all of you :D CurlyHair - c...

Re: MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care 2016

Is anyone else having trouble typing their Candidate ID number into the NHS form? It won't let me click on the box to type it in, but the rest of the form is fine. :-? Stuart I believe this is for the NHS to complete for their reference once all of the applications are in. At least, I hope that's t...

Re: MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care 2016

The most recent post suggests w/c 15th October so I'd assume that was correct, however I'm sure they'll confirm this nearer the time.
