Re: Course start dates

Each course usually starts with a teaching block at the university. This usually occurs on the first week of the start of the new term. If you google each uni and then type "term dates" you should be able to see the week each uni starts.

Re: Staffordshire 2017

Hi Og1234,

Congratulations on getting a place!

I have been offered a place at Staffs and I've accepted my place. I'm over the moon, as I'm sure you are :) I interviewed on the Wednesday so I won't have met you. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

How much can you disclose to family members?

My colleague was recently faced with a situation where the wife of one of her clients turned up to the service demanding to speak to the clinician working with her husband. She was upset, stating that her husband has been very secretive and is not telling her how his sessions are going and from this...

Re: Publication Issues

Thanks for the replies. I did email the editor not long ago but haven't had a response yet. I'll try again and if there's no luck i'll ask for the paper to be withdrawn. Appreciate the help :)

Re: Publication Issues

That's what I wasn't sure about... I was under the impression that you can't submit to two journals simultaneously... but it might be justified in this situation maybe?

Publication Issues

I have been writing up part of my masters project for publication and I recently submitted the paper to a journal. When I submitted the paper, there had been a mix up and the editor didn't actually receive my submission. Anyways, once I got that sorted, the editor agreed to try and process the paper...

Re: Safeguarding Children

It depends on the age of the child, the risks involved and what can be done to protect the child. If the child is 16 or older they are assumed to have competence to consent to see a psychologist and normal client confidentiality rules apply. If the child is 15 or younger, they must demonstrate Gill...

Safeguarding Children

Apologies if this has been discussed before, but I didn't find anything in the search. I was recently presented with a hypothetical situation about an assessment with a child who stated they have been abused by someone and didn't want their mum to know (mum wasn't the abuser). I wasn't sure what saf...

The role of references

I know there has been lots of discussions in the past regarding who to select to provide a reference and I'm aware that the course centres use references as part of their shortlisting procedure, but I'm interested to know whether the length of time your referee has known you plays a part in how seri...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Manchester Lancaster Liverpool Leeds Bit gutted as Lancaster was my favourite choice, and by checking the rankings I found out I didn't miss out by too much and was indeed above the 70th percentile. Just to clarify, the 70th percentile we refer to as our minimum criteria does not refer to the peopl...

Re: Lancaster GMA tests 2016

I agree that the words were quite pixelated. I actually zoomed in on the verbal reasoning practice test because the text passages seemed a bit small, but when I zoomed in the words were very pixelated. On top of that the multiple choice options were much bigger, therefore to select the option I need...

Re: Lancaster GMA tests 2016

Hi Strelitzia First of all - don't be despondent. Our typical applicant finds the numerical reasoning significantly harder than the verbal reasoning component so you are in the vast majority there. As I noted on our website, the questions on the SHL site are not indicative of the difficulty of the ...

Re: Birmingham Written Exercise 2016

Hiya, this is the link I found. Unfortunately it's the only one. I know that the people who kindly replied to this thread mentioned that Birmingham haven't been running the written exercise for that manyyears, but I find it strange that I can still only find 1 past paper... Weird. https://www.whatd...
