Re: Barriers to Healthcare study!

This is quite a quick survey about accessing sexual health services, and as I understand it is open to people of all sexualities. Didn't take me long to do. It is the smaller part of a bigger study to be conducted later hence open to everyone and takes very little time. Thank you for doing it :)

Re: Verbally offered NHS AP job over 4 weeks ago!

Congratulations on gaining the post :D I'm in agreement with everyone else - NHS recruitment is painfully slow! My current post took just over 8 weeks and I don't know how as my previous role in a prison meant I already had my CRB check. All I can tell you is that you will get a start date at some p...

Re: How soon is too soon?

It was about this time in my 3rd year I started applying and by the end of the month, I had 4 interviews which resulted in 3 job offers. I don't quite remember but I don't think any of the employers said my offer was conditional because I hadn't graduated. I was anxious to see what sort of response ...

This thread has been very helpful but my statement is also just over 800 words. Would anyone kindly read through it and check it for me? Pretty please?

Re: Importance of a relevant MSc dissertation?

I thought the same as there is such significant overlap between 'Clinical' and 'Health' issues but just wondered if it would make a difference at all.

Thank you for your reply - it has eased my mind :)

Re: Forensic Psychology doctorate courses

I'd be interested in hearing from people that have gone through the application process as well. Mainly, regarding the funding aspect of it.

Re: What do you think of the BPS? Are you a member?

I've never joined but have wondered if I am missing out - the only time when I have felt this is when an NHS application requires the membership in order to proceed with the application. Other than that, I can't justify the sum for a discount on conferences which are still so expensive to attend and...

Re: time after time...

30 applications, 4 interviews, 2 job offers. The part that frustrated me most was not getting any specific feedback due to the numbers that were interviewed. This was a while ago now, I don't intend on starting this process again until the end of the year. I think the trick is not to give up and kee...

Re: Sussex Conversion - days studying

Although not a conversion, my MSc requires me to be in university, 2 days a week. I know this varies across the departments though. Have you emailed the department? I'm sure they would be able to point you in the right direction.
