Edinburgh CAAP 2020

Post by littlelea » Mon Oct 07, 2019 5:24 pm

Has anyone applied for the February 2020 Clinical Associate in Applied Psychology MSc at Edinburgh? We should hear this week if we're invited for interview - I've got everything crossed! If anyone working as a CAAP has any top tips for interview they would be extremely appreciated!

Hiya littlelea!
I also applied, and just got an email now saying I'm on the reserve list for the interview.
I'm a bit disappointed, as I'm not sure what the chances are of people dropping out of the interview :-(

Good luck to you, hope you get an interview!

So, i've got interviews for both adult and child caap courses and if successful in the adult will most likely withdraw from child interview... So it is possible!
:D

Aww, thanks toscapuss for the encouragement!
(won't put my study books away just yet then).

And well done on getting an invite to interview for both programmes! :D

I've been offered an adult caap place so have emailed kirsty to withdraw from child caap interview.
Fingers crossed that means good news for someone...

Just curious whether anyone on the reserve interview list has been offered an interview? I'm just curious whether they'll offer on a rolling basis as people pull out or are waiting until after the response deadline (which I think is today).

Nope! Haven't heard anything yet...
I think they'll do the "waiting until after the response deadling" thing (but that's just a guess!)

Did anyone on the reserve list for interview actually get invited?? I know today is the last day of interviews. Last year I got an interview and then a second interview and ended up on reserve list for the course (painful) - I’m wondering if whilst second interviews are going on, those on the reserve list for interview might get invited for a first interview or if that won’t be allowed as we have had interview materials for longer...

It was my first time applying and I got put on the reserve list for an interview. But I've not heard anything yet so not 100% sure.

I've now been taken from the reserve list for interview and given an interview for glasgow and fife. So scared because I was so nervous at my interview last year and totally fluffed it. Any tips? My friend has got a place and will be in Glasgow for placement which is where I'm also hoping for. Any advice on interview or what they seemed to focus on this year would be greatly appreciated!
