My name is Awula, I have joined to learn and share information about the Clinical Psychology application process. I am not an experienced computer user and may not even figure out how to reply to chats but I am willing to learn.

Hi everyone :)

My name is Joanna and I'm currently studying Clinical Psychology MSc at Newcastle University.
My hope is to try and get onto a funded Trainee PWP course after graduating, but I know how competitive these positions are becoming! I have been in paid employment for 5 years as a pharmacy dispenser, and alongside this I have 5 years experience of several different voluntary Support Worker positions working with a range of individuals with mental illness. It's come the time and I feel (and really want to) be in paid employment working with individuals with mental illness and putting my several years studying psychology and experiences to good use!

If anyone has any tips or advice for getting a funded Trainee PWP position, or just wants a general chat about being a psychology graduate (which can be overwelming at times) I'm happy to chat :D

Hi everyone :D

I'm Hannah. I graduated from uni in 2016 with a first in Forensic Psychology and am currently working as an Assistant Psychologist in the NHS after spending 5 years as a healthcare assistant. I have applied for the dclin this year (second time round - no interviews last year) and follow the forum page regularly looking for updates and advice.

I love to dance, do ballet and Zumba weekly and use this as my 'me time' to unwind and think about absolutely nothing.

Hello everyone!

Like many of you I'm a long-time visitor, but a first-time contributor. :)

I'm 28, originally from Hungary, but I am planning to settle in the UK by 2019. I did my BA in Psychology in Hungary and my MSc in Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences in the Netherlands. Currently I am undertaking a PhD in Psychiatry at a UK university, my research is in the area of autism spectrum conditions. I'm hoping to apply to the doctorate next year, once I'm close to finishing the PhD (fingers crossed).

I've had my first work experience in a laboratory, where I was running experiments on mouse brain slices and testing different drugs for tissue repair. Although not directly relevant to clinical psychology, I enjoyed the insight into basic science and how it contributes to rehabilitation.

I've also worked briefly as a bank HCA in a general hospital (not mental health) and I've had two assistant posts in neuropsychology, so my experience is somewhat limited specialisation-wise. With that said, these posts challenged me both personally and professionally and I feel that I learned plenty from them.

In my free time I enjoy studying languages, going on bike rides and listening to blues/jazz. My favourite colour changes regularly, right now it seems to be purple. I don't like coriander or chocolate cake, but I'm a big fan of coffee and pie. I wish I had a pet, but, alas, I live in a rented flat that doesn't allow me to have one. Maybe in a couple of years I'll get to have a furry friend (or something similar)! :alien:

Looking forward to seeing your posts across the boards of the forum! :)
