Re: Only applying to one course centre

I can't see why that would be a problem, I only applied to two courses as I wasn't in a position to move and it worked out ok.

Also like firegal, I'm pretty sure they can't see where else you've applied, unless we've both just made that up :)

Re: Leeds current trainees?

Oooh, will you be joining us? If so, congratulations :) 1. I'm a first year and we didn't have many study days before Christmas and then moved on to sort of most Mondays as study days. I think this will continue to be the case. 2. When the university is closed over summer, we'll be doing 4 days on p...

Re: Getting onto an MSc with 'bad' transcript grades?

For most MSc courses, a 2.1 is a 2.1 and I don't suspect you'll come across many masters courses that distinguish between low/high 2.1 (I haven't anyway). My experiences during my BSc are somewhat similar to yours and I think I may have just scraped 60/61%. I applied to do a semi long distance MSc a...

Re: LinkedIn as a useful networking tool in Psychology?

I have found LinkedIn massively useful for getting in touch with people who do the kind of work I'd like to do in the future, e.g. humanitarian psychological work. It's meant that I've often found links to papers and articles that I probably would not have found on my own. I also use it to see the k...

Re: Re UK referendum

The Leeds course send me an email on Friday reassuring me that my place on the course is safe and that the Brexit outcome has no impact on the current application. For the next 2 years anyway.

Re: AP posts outside the NHS

I used to google AP jobs and check every link that came up, you'd be surprised how many private healthcare providers are out there! From memory, you can check out: - Cambian Group - The Priory - The Retreat - St Andrews Healthcare - Alpha Hospitals - Turning Point - Huntercombe - Christchurch Group ...

Leeds 2016

Considering the final few are just about to reject/accept their place at Leeds, it's probably time for a proper course post. A few of us hijacked a couple of other posts, so here's our own shiny new thread :P Good luck to those still in two minds, even better luck to those on the reserve list and we...

Re: How many times did you apply?

Twice.

1. Last year, applied to Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and Trent and interviewed at Trent with no place.
2. This year applied to just Sheffield and Leeds, interviewed at both, offered place at Leeds.

Didn't feel ready to apply until 4 years after my undergrad :cyclops:
