Re: Wisc results

Hi, check out the interpretive reports on the pearson website - they have really good, common sense explanations and recommendations you can make for different scores. Not absolute comprehensive as will depend on an individuals scores, but a good place to start.

Re: Neuropsychology/Research

Glasgow has quite a number of professionals in the department with a specific neuropsychology focus - look up Tom McMillan (adult) and Liam Dorris (child). There's options to do third year placements in neuropsychology services (adult and child) too.

BPS/DCP member - favourable in application?

My BPS/DCP membership is up for renewal but obviously it being just after christmas etc £150 is looking like a lot to splash out right now. Can anyone shed any light on how membership is perceived at application stage? I'm due to qualify this year (hopefully..!) and some of the jobs I've seen have h...

Re: Disabled Students Allowance & Clinical psychology doctor

I just applied for the normal (non-NHS) DSA and it all went smoothly. Sounds like being given a computer at work would be a nightmare, especially as I'm between two services!

Re: DClin Interviews - 'Selling Yourself'

I'd read that as a 'you can, but you don't have to', so if you feel like you've managed to express yourself clearly through the interview, then don't feel like you have to then add loads of stuff at the end. It's a bit like when they ask you if you have any questions at the end of the interview - ge...

Re: Reserve lists

Just to add a bit more information about the Scottish courses... It's rather a complicated process because of the fact that you complete a preference form for location. I think this is more important for Edinburgh as they interview by area. So for example I was offered an interview last year to be i...

Re: How many publications did you have when you got on train

Hi, I'm a first year trainee and had 5 publications when I got onto training but I really think it depends on your past experience - I was a Research Assistant for 3 years before I got on, in a very publication heavy research department. Next to no one in my year has any publications so I really don...

Re: Structure/timetable

Not sure how helpful info on Glasgow will be but: We had a month block of teaching in October, with no study days, 2 days placement, 2 days uni and one study day from Nov-march, then we go down to 1 uni day, 3 placement days and 1 study day (always a Fri) until uni closes in summer where we have 4 p...

Re: Do shortlisters read the whole form

I think it's really important not to try and second guess everything or listen to too many rumours. Focus on ensuring you meet the minimum criteria set out on course websites and try to submit a good form. I'm not academically brilliant on paper (mid 2.1 undergrad and merit as masters) but managed t...

Re: Teeside announce internship route to their DClin trainin

This is a little off topic but I think courses try very hard to ensure those they select are capable on a number of levels, including personality! lots of courses now include a role play element that really does give applicants a chance to shine as an individual. The selection process is hard on all...

Re: open access journal

Open Access Journals (at least the ones I have published I ) still use a peer review process so definitely still valuable. To be honest, I would say any relevant publications (regardless of journal) would be valuable!!

Good luck!

Re: Expenses from Doctorate interviews

I was refunded for my interview at Glasgow last year but it took until August to get the cheque! RHUL and Salomons don't offer a refund and Edinburgh wouldn't refund my train from Glasgow either(in case anyone's interested!)

Re: Technology/Apps etc whilst training

I just wanted to bump this again and ask what most people have in relation to a computer: laptop, tablet, desktop? I'll be buying a new one as mine are all ancient and slow so any advice on what would be most suitable would be very much appreciated!!
