Direct quote from the Clearing House: International experience It is a good idea to have experience of how services operate in the UK if you are applying for NHS places. (People currently training as clinical psychologists are employed by the NHS. Taken from the "International Students" section of t...

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

I'm sorry Miriam, from what you're saying it looks like that the doctoral programme prefers uk candidates. This information is clearly not stated anywhere, there is no mention at all about the criteria of being familiar with the British culture and NHS, or being British only. Do you have any offici...

Re: Participants wanted - unusual experiences and social learning

Can you please state that your study has ethical approval (and who from) and who your supervisor/s is/are? These things are needed to recruit from this site.

Re: Residential Children’s Care role

Support worker roles are usually a very good starting point for gaining experience, so, yes, this could be an ideal entry level role. But I think it's worth reiterating a couple of things. First of all, don't get caught up in the whole "must have an AP job" rigmerole. AP posts are excellent experien...

Re: Reserve list for places 2019

Anyone else declined a place at Plymouth? I was wondering if the list is moving. I am 11th on the reserve, have I got a chance??? (it seems unrealistic that 11 people will decline!) I asked the admin staff if they could let me know if the list has moved at all, and they are not allowed to. I was th...

Yours is what we call a concise argument. :) Why expend two hundred words when you can say it in two?

Re: Am I doing the right thing ?

I think only you can know if spending the next few years pursuing CP is worth it. There are several threads on the site describing the journey people have taken, so have a browse at them to get feel for whether it's right for you. If you do feel that it is a career you really want and you will enjoy...

Re: Help me fix my covering letter to get that first AP position

No, GBC is not the chartered membership. That is not what Miriam said. GBC is an indication that your initial degree is robust enough and has enough academic theory to allow you to go on and do further study/training in a practitioner role. It does not give you the right to practise - it is the furt...

Hi, I just gave up my interview for Birmingham (accepted a place at UEA :D ) so the list should move! Hi, did you write the exam? I was hoping if you will be able to share what type of questions did they ask? Forum rules do not allow for sharing of questions from tests or interviews. We want a leve...

Re: Just wanted a bit of career advice

I would suggest that if you are excited at the prospect of the project officer job, then go for it. From what you have said of it, it sounds like it has a lot to recommend it and will help you develop many skills which could enhance a future application for the clinical courses. At this stage, I wou...

Re: Do I have a shot at getting onto a clinical psychology course with these grades?

You can still get on to the Clinical doctorate with those grades, but just be selective where you apply. Some courses (e.g. UCL or Oxford) might not consider you if you do not have a high 2:1 and only a pass in your MSc. Others (e.g. Lancaster) will not consider your grade at all. Have a good trawl ...
