Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Is it just me obsessively checking the clearing house to see if online applications are open yet? I need to get out more. ;) Thankfully I have an 6/7 hour train journey tomorrow with limited internet access, no anxious checking for me! Also, if this is what I'm like now I dread to think what I'll be...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

I've heard that it is best to have a clinpsy read your application before sending it off...I haven't got anyone to ask in my current work. Any advice on this? Going to have a read through the website and forums now and try to stay calm! x I think it can be helpful to have someone read it over for y...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

This is my second time applying. I applied a couple of years ago, more out of a feeling it was what I was 'supposed to do' at that point in time. Looking back at the form I submitted makes me cringe a little. I was also only able to submit one referee due to my undergrad tutor agreeing to do my acad...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. After nearly two years in the waiting, I finally start my MSc this month. Excited and slightly intimidated. 2. I'm wondering how feasible it is to get my clinical application submitted before uni starts. Might as well do it now while I have the spare time and get it out the way. 3. I need to buy ...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Aaah, well spotted, I think you're right.

This is what I get for getting overly excited / anxious when I saw the link was now active and the new form was up.

Good example of why you should try and be less anxious around the application form if nothing else. ;)

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Oooh, and as if by magic an updated form appeared online! Same as last year, with the addition of: Briefly outline your understanding of the role of the clinical psychologist within mental health care systems in the UK. 1,500 character limit for this question. Interesting question! Though I feel lik...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

I wouldn't worry about comparing your experience to everyone else's, makes for unnecessarily anxious applicants! Go easy on yourself, they're looking to see what you learned etc, not what you think you should have! Old and cliched as it is, just be yourself. Also, am I the only one who's mildly conc...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Get ready for anxiety provoked / provoking posts swamping the boards. On another note, it's nice to see the Clearing House have finally updated their website. It was looking a little tired. EDIT: Speaking of anxiety provoking posts, this makes me a little uneasy: "Sample Application form [this link ...

Well the clearing house has been updated for 2012/13.

Applications open week ending 14th September, and applications close at 1.00pm on the 4th December.

Yeah, I'm so cool I'm checking the Clearing House on a Friday night. ;)

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Ditto. Facebook is becomes more interesting the longer I look at that blank screen.

Still super early days though. As long as I have a rough draft done my the time my MSc starts (late Sept / early Oct) I'll be happy. We have until December. ;)

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Yeah, that was the reasoning. Stick it in the "other" section with a little explanation. I can understand (from working within the deaf community) that it would be incredibly frustrating to have stilted conversation with someone who claimed to be "fluent" which isn't something I would do anyway. Als...

I'm on a budget, I wonder if a tenner will do the trick? ;)

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

That makes sense. I was probably going to list it, but I was worried it would look a little superfluous. I did learn it when I was working in LD, my clients started teaching me, and I thought it was great getting a better insight (into my clients, and deaf culture) so I went on to do formal classes....

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

This is a bit of a random one, but it does apply to the application form ;) There's a section that lists other languages, and I've noticed before there's an option for "Scottish-Gaelic" and one for "Scots"; now, I've no idea at all about Gaelic, but being Scottish I do understand the Scots dialect a...
