Aaah, thanks for sharing that link. I struggle to be reflective when I'm writing too so that's going to come in very handy. :)

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

I saw an ad in my university careers service email while I was in my final year of my undergrad. It was through a specialist recruitment agency looking to recruit psych grads to make up for a shortfall in qualified grads going into direct care in Massachusetts. They don't exist any more, or I'd pass...

Re: Gaining Experience in USA?

Hi there! I've been working in America (Boston) for the last two years and will be heading back to the UK soon to start my Masters at UCL. You'll definitely need a visa. I went over on an H1-B which is a specialist occupation visa. The process of applying for one can take some time (avergae 6-8 mont...

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

1. I didn't realise it was possible to be this excited and sad at the same time - at the prospect of moving to London after two years working in America. 2. Really hoping I hear back about some of the jobs I've applied for in London. 3. Selling your car is more stressful than it should be. 4. I'm ac...

Also regarding the languages thing, they do have some strange choices in there, eg 'Scots' and 'Scots-gaelic'. I'm Scottish, and I assume by Scots they just mean the Scots dialect, in which case I understand it, but I wouldn't describe myself as "fluent in Scots" so am in a quandry as whether or not...

How much I love colouring/doing arts and crafts! I hadn't picked up felt tip pens, poster paints or glitter since I was a kid until I started the job I'm in now and I love it! :)

Bahahahahahahaaaaaaaa Love it!!! I once punched my brother in the nose (he was about 3, I would have been 6 or 7). He was really annoying me... and I told him to hold a pillow in front of his face so I didn't hurt him.. but he moved it and I ended up giving him a bloody nose! :oops: He has forgiven...

Well done! That's great news :D I haven't heard anything yet, which makes me suspect it may not be good news. Did you get a phone call or a letter to let you know?

Hope you're celebrating!!

I worked as a volunteer AP before and the first meeting was really informal. Just a chat to say hello and to explain what type of work I'd be doing, and to give me some information about the department. They might ask if you're interested in getting involved with research or what type of experience ...

How's everyone feeling about interviews? I'm starting to get very nervous and feeling very underprepared. Think it's time for coffee and a biscuit to refuel then on with some more reading. :) Good luck to everyone with interviews! Also, does anyone know how long it'll be after the interviews until w...

Hi, Yes I'm beginning to feel really nervous about it, I wasn't expecting that we had to sit a short test after so that was a bit of a surprise! Best of luck with your interview though. I've never been to Stirling Uni before so will probably arrive early and have a look around, though from the websi...
