Edinburgh/Glasgow DClin Trainee Online Interview Q&A Event!

Post by JamieFerrie »

Hello everyone!

I hope that you are all able to look after yourselves during the application/interview season for the programme.

We are a group of current trainee Clinical Psychologists at the University of Glasgow and University of Edinburgh, who will be hosting a live video chat for anyone who has an interest in the interview process as part of applying for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. We plan on this session being an opportunity to share our experiences of the interview process and how this is reflective of doing the course itself.

There are often misconceptions about the ideal type of applicant, interview style and content needed to get through the interview process, however what we’ve realised in meeting each other is how different all our experiences were leading up to the course and how we applied this in our interviews. Many of us found the misconceptions affected our confidence in applying and we hope by sharing our experience it will encourage potential candidates and interviewees that they do not need to fit a specific mould to successfully interview for clinical training.

We also hope this will be helpful to counteract the rise of paid for support and insight, as well as advantages of “who you know” which maintains unequal access to the profession. As a group, we believe the profession will better serve society, if those who train as Clinical Psychologists better represent the diversity of that society.

This event will take place at 7.30pm (GMT) on Wednesday 30th March 2022 on Zoom. It will be quite informal so please do drop in if you are interested! We will talk about our experiences of interviewing and do our best to answer any questions you may have.

Please note we in no way see ourselves as experts on the interview process, or as representatives of the University of Edinburgh or Glasgow. We instead hope to share our individual experiences and hope this is helpful for those applying to and interviewing for training.
