Me too. I'm so excited to have an interview but also pretty terrified too. Need to dig out the old stats books and uni notes now. :?

The application form isn't too much of a nightmare. There's an NHS application and a University application. The questions are pretty straight forward but like all applications need a bit of thinking about before you fill them in. I think we find out if we've been shortlisted by the 18th of Septembe...

The closing date is this Friday. The main office is in Dundee though so if you live locally it might be faster to just go there rather than have the form sent out to you then have to send it back again by Friday. If you want to know the address for the office I can PM you, or actually it might be on...

Well I sent off my application this morning. The more I read about the actual course itself and the role of a clinical associate the more it appealed to me. I like that you get to work with a fairly specific client group. I can't wait to hear back now, September seems so long away.
Fingers crossed.

I was considering applying but I'm not sure whether to stick with the more traditional route of working as an AP then on to clinical training or to try my hand at getting on the course to become a clinical associate. Can anyone who's completed the course shed a bit of light onto the pros/cons of wor...

You missed out Glasgow, and I'm not sure what happens at Strathclyde. Doesn't that cover pretty much all the Universities in Scotland? Oops, forgot about Glasgow :oops: But, yes that covers most Scottish unis, but like I say it's the ancient ones that do MAs. Dundee counts as an ancient university ...

I grew up in Dundee, so maybe don't have the fondness for it that old Dundee students etc would, but I'd definately say the West End area of town is a really great place to stay. If you don't mind living a bit further out Broughty Ferry / Monifieth are really nice too and it only takes about fifteen...

I got my MA from St Andrews too and the fourth year is definately still the same. It's almost all student led, with individuals or groups researching the topics and then presenting the lecture to the class. That's what I really grew to like about the department there, the students were really involv...

I have (almost) 3 degrees - MA from Glasgow in philosophy, MPhil from Dundee (also philosophy) and am almost finished my OU BSc, I have lived half my life in England and half in Scotland so hopefully can help... One of the reasons that in Scotland an undergrad degree is generally 4 years is that in...

Paper request.

Hi, I'm looking for a paper by Paul Gilbert about Guilt Proneness, Shame Proneness and Response to Anger in addiction. I'm afraid I don't have the exact title or the journal citation but those were the only details I have and can't find it anywhere. Google scholar and Athens are letting me down. If ...

Hi,

Afraid I didn't apply for it this year after all. Though it was more to do with finances than not wanting to do it.

Sorry I can't give you any more information!
