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...

I didn't get short-listed at Exeter last year, so really pleased to get a chance this time round.

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.

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...

Re: Application to both PWP and DClinPsych training...

I would look very carefully at your PWP contract - mine had a clause that I was required to stay in post 6 months after qualifying or I would have to pay fees back. Other contracts also have a requirement to pay fees back if you don't complete the course. I've never seen this tested in reality, but ...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

2nd time applying, after a very under-prepared attempt last year that resulted in 3 interviews, 2 justified rejections, and one agonisingly near miss as 1st reserve.

Bath
Birmingham
Coventry
Exeter

Good luck everyone!

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

It's not a time saver really... and I should know. However it is evidence based which is why it makes sense. Fair enough, as I said, just my cynical side coming out! Good to be corrected. This is not an either/or. Using these tests allows you to get what you term "academic and intellectual high-fly...
