Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Just heard from an offline friend that she got offered a place at Bath - so looks like those of us who haven't heard are unsuccessful. First time applicant, 2x rejections, 1 further interview. Eugh, this is a gruelling process.

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Has anyone been called by Bath today? Assuming no call means unsuccessful but seems strange that no one has posted saying they've been offered a place? No call for me either - also assuming that it's a no, but had been expecting to see some people celebrating. It's frustrating because I feel I can'...

Re: Managing interview anxiety

Thanks for the advice everyone! Definitely put way too much pressure on myself for the first one, but the feedback said I generally came across really well but lacked depth in my answers. So I am definitely going to practice saying phrases like "I've said x, y and z, is there anything you'd like me ...

Wasn't expecting it after a pretty awful interview day, but gutted nonetheless. Well done to those who did make it. Two more chances this year!

Managing interview anxiety

I was wondering if people would mind sharing their advice on how to manage interview anxiety. I am just not someone who thinks well when put on the spot. This weakness hasn't really held me back in work or uni - in my experience, 99% of situations allow me enough time to demonstrate my full potentia...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Birmingham & Cardiff Bath & Exeter Very happy with this! First year applying, and enough time between the 2 interviews to really learn from the first if it doesn't go well. And if neither go well, I've got as far as I was hoping to get this year, and an idea about which universities like my applica...

Re: Reserve List Updates Thread

Hi all Does anyone know how many people Cardiff invite for interview, or how much the list normally moves at all? Thank you! Cardiff are interviewing 55 people for 15 places this year. No idea about what the list normally does, but the interviews are late (mid-May) so hopefully you'll see some move...

Thanks!
I emailed Exeter too, but they said they couldn't tell me anymore than before the 17th March - so I am assuming it'll be fairly close to that date.

Re: OXFORD shortlisting 2017

Birmingham aren't planning to let us know until w/c 13th, and the interviews are the week after! Talk about short-notice - particularly for people who work in client-facing roles and will have to cancel sessions. I also chased up Cardiff, who definitely won't let us know before 7th March, and Bath, ...

Re: PWP Training Courses

Exeter Uni cover the South West (Cornwall in the South, to Wiltshire in the East, and Gloucestershire in the North of the patch). The uni offer out a number of places every ~6 months to each service, which then advertise the posts. Some services take trainees on and get them working before the train...
