Birmingham 2018

Hello! Any fellow 2018 Birmingham trainees out there? It would be great to get to know people a bit before the course starts, and to have someone to bounce ideas off as they start bombarding us with paperwork and placement choices for the first year.

Re: How many years after graduation before you got on the course

I graduated from my conversion Masters in 2013, and have just got a place to start in 2018. So academically, I've been ready since 2013. I was unsure about the different professional/academic psychology routes, and so spent a bit of time getting some really varied experience to find out. I'm glad I ...

Re: Reserve lists for places

Any news on the Exeter list movement would be highly appreciated. Although as we don't know our places, it's more for the illusion of further information!

Re: IAPT versus AP

I would say it very much depends on the university. I interviewed at a uni last year, who told me that my interview was too IAPT-focused, and they had wanted broader experience from me. While great experience clinically, IAPT is a very narrow segment of the psychology world. The other thing IAPT sev...

Re: What to do next!

I would agree with others, that choosing universities based on their short-listing process is becoming key. Short-listing tests definitely agree with me - my application alone is the high end of good enough in all areas now, but not outstanding enough to win me interviews without something extra. So...

Re: Interview dates Help!

Hi folks, I've been offered an interview the same week I'm flying to New York :shock: As of today I do not know the specific date for the interview but I was wondering if those who had interviewed at Trent before could tell me if there were dates throughout the week or one specified day for intervi...

Re: So what does it take to get onto training then?

Maybe this issue needs a thread of its own (sorry if this post is irrelevant, please delete if it is) but I do feel the stakes are getting higher when it comes to applications. There is no doubt AP, RA, MSc and PhDs do make your application stronger if you have expressed what you have learned in th...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Hi everyone, I have (finally!) received feedback from Coventry and Warwick and they have advised that I need 'more evidence of personal development through clinical experience'...Can anyone enlighten me as to what this means and how I can achieve it please? I thought I was quite a reflective person...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Birmingham Exeter Bath Coventry & Warwick While I'm obviously very pleased to get 2 interviews, Bath was my first choice and I'm gutted not to get an interview there, when I came so close to getting a place last year. I also declared a disability this year, and the Clearing House says they offer in...

Re: Private CBT training - what do I need to know?

Hi, I'm a PWP looking to complete CBT training privately. I'm looking for some information regarding the placements. Are they paid/unpaid? Can I change services half-way through the training? Any information basically will be helpful :) Hi, fellow PWP here! I've worked with a few people who trained...

Re: Being a PWP with a Disability

I am a Senior PWP currently and have a disability. I started experiencing symptoms and was diagnosed just after finishing my PWP training, so can't comment on that aspect, but can certainly answer any questions about working as a PWP with a disability. Feel free to send me a direct message.

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Birmingham Bath Cov & Warwick Exeter Well done! Was it via email?...I'm currently awaiting the outcome :shock: Thanks! I interviewed last year, and was horrendously under-prepared so it was an awful experience... here's hoping my second chance will go a bit better. They emailed me a few minutes ago...
