Re: Educational Psychology

I've heard something on the professional grapevine about Cardiff - this is only third-hand so NOT confirmed , or to be assumed to be the truth without verification from a primary source. However, I've heard that the Welsh Government (who, as we know, fund the Cardiff course's trainees via bursary pa...

Re: Educational Psychology

I've recently answered this question for someone else, away from this board, so I can replicate that reply below if you like. Please be aware that I am talking only from my own personal experience and point of view, and other EPs' experiences may differ from my own to a significant degree. ---------...

Re: Educational Psychology

This was posted on EPNET this morning (for the benefit of those of you not on the mailing list)... - please note, I have no affiliation with the Southampton course or any of its staff or trainees.

Re: Educational Psychology

Cheers, well despite being an EU national once I've graduated I will have been a resident of the UK for the 5 years. Cheers for the info! Would you recommend applying for permanent residence status in the UK? I wouldn't have a clue I'm afraid! That seems like a major decision affecting the whole of...

Re: Educational Psychology

Hi, Do unis offer funded places for EU students on the EdPsych doctorate? Cheerio! Unfortunately not, at least not the English courses - unless the UK is already your long-term place of residence. See this quote from the Teaching Agency's current handbook for applicants (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/educat...

Re: Educational Psychology

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. You sound a bit like where I was at after finishing my undergrad :) It is possible to get there, but yes you do have to be prepared for a few years' commitment to climbing the ladder along the way! However as the previous poster has said, that time also allo...

Re: Educational Psychology

It is mainly grades that I was looking for, because I'm having a panic now that if I get a low grade I will not get on, but looking through the clinical thread a few people with low 2.1's and 2.2's have actually got on, so was wondering really if it is the same with Educational as long as you have ...

Re: Educational Psychology

Hi I was just wondering if some of you can post what experience and education you had when you got onto the doctorate, like there is a thread for Clinical, as I am wondering what work to go into when I have finished my degree which is soon and what results people got in their degrees. Thanks. Jazam...

Re: Educational vs. Clinical Psychology

I think it's also an interesting question how the nature of traded services for EPs (where schools buy in EP time for all non-statutory work) affects the dynamics of their negotiating power with schools/services (does it become a case of "well I'm paying for you to do a cognitive assessment so you'...

Re: Educational Psychology

Oh, good Lord, no. I was 29 when I started. My cohort ranged in age (at start) from 23 to 36, with most being in the 25-28 bracket. Other cohorts/courses I've heard about anecdotally have ranged up to mid-late 40s. Why are you edgy about it - what difference are you thinking it might make? You obvio...

Re: Educational Psychology

Further to the above, Page 3 of this thread has some discussion about what to wear for interviews. And, it's perfectly fine (I should think) to say "ed psych", or even "EP". I tend to talk about "ed psychs" to people who are outside the profession, e.g. teachers, therapists, parents etc, and say "EP...
