Re: AP or RA? Need to decide today :s

Congrats on being in this position! I think both will put you in a strong position for a DClin application. DClin application aside, which post are you most excited about?

Re: Two Job Offers in Similar Areas plus Research Assistant

How prepared are you to commute? Personally, anything over a 1 hour commute is too much for me, and I think I would've really struggled with this especially when I was a support worker (with unsociable hours and really quite demanding work - although support work does vary a lot). So I'd go for the ...

Re: Inclusion of IPA transcripts in PhD thesis

Any qual thesis examples I've seen have either not included the transcripts, or at most include one as an example. I can't imagine an examiner wanting to see them all. I think the rationale to include one as an example of how you did the analysis sounds reasonable. I can't see what including them al...

Re: Offer of Job and Negotiating Salary

Typically you would be offered at the bottom of the scale, but you could definitely try to negotiate if you have reason to, such as if you've worked in a similar role or have substantial experience.

Re: Publishing for the first time,ins and outs !

I'd also suggest looking at a few papers in your target journal, that are vaguely similar to your paper (in terms of topic and/or methodology). Look at the structure these articles tend to follow- often the structure will be similar within a journal and you can use that as a basis for structuring yo...

Re: Publishing for the first time,ins and outs !

I'd suggest emailing her stating who you are proposing will be helping you with the manuscript, and ask if she has any objections to get back to you by a specific date as you'll be starting work with them on the paper then. (And if you don't hear back, you'll assume that's ok with her). Then I think...

Re: unexpected situation - don't know what to do!

Sorry for your loss. The most important thing is to focus on your final exams, and while you're doing that, I don't know if it makes sense to enrol on any other courses. Just get this one done first! Especially if you're planning to go on to an MSc at a later date. But if you have time alongside tha...

Re: Help Please, HR Nightmare

What a horrible situation. Could you call one of the people who interviewed you and offered you the job. Maybe explain the situation from your side and that you would really like to understand the problem so you can address it for future applications. I say this because HR are obviously going to be ...

Re: Getting onto an MSc with 'bad' transcript grades?

I think MSc courses vary a lot in how selective they are. I did my MSc in Research Methods. My impression was that my university didn't have a limit on number of places (as long as you found a supervisor for the dissertation), so weren't that selective as long as you met the minimum criteria. There ...

Re: Child psychotherapy?

Yeah my line manager is a psychotherapist and has such an interesting way of working and thinking about things which I find really helpful. I do think it is really helpful for anyone who is going to work clinically to experience it on the other side of the couch though, so there's lots I like about ...

Re: Child psychotherapy?

A few friends of mine are doing the child psychotherapy training. It's a costly route to go down as you need to have your own analysis several times a week, for at least a year before you start training and throughout your training (although I think it is subsidised once on training). You also need ...

Re: Course Modules in PhD Psychology UCL

Hi Nancy I'm in the first year of my PhD at UCL. I think it varies depending on the specific PhD programme, but I had to do three modules in my first year. I was able to choose from various modules such as qualitative research, statistics etc. Each module was generally one lecture per week for a ter...

Re: The Great Big PhD Tea-Sympathy-and-Celebration Thread

I feel your pain with literature reviewing! Must be a nice feeling to see it coming together! How long have you left to write up? After weeks of being completely baffled by how my results are looking, I have just had a mini-breakthrough where my confusing results actually kind of make sense. Just in...
