3rd time applying:

Glasgow
Edinburgh - about to start on my additional Q's now...!

And that's all I applied for this year after recently moving back to Scotland. It slightly feels like I'm clipping my own wings however I've so far only had luck at the Scottish unis and so hopefully it won't stand against me this time either. If it was just me I might have applied for Northern England too however I don't really want to move away again and I've got to think about the needs and wishes of my husband too.

Good luck everyone!

So this feels strange - I have applied for the clinical psychology course I think three times over the previous 9 years, some years ago I posted that I had decided against clinical psychology and at that time it was definitely the right decision for me - so I have since had a dabble in other things, almost went for graduate medicine but realised soon after experience, shadowing and completing my app it really was not for me AT ALL! so I was a lost doodlebug for a long while with lots of life happening.

I have since trained as a HIT and also in EMDR; this past year I have felt that I have regained my passion and motivation and really reconnected with Clinical Psychology....maybe it was for me after all - admittedley I had had many bumps along the way when I decided on the time out, endless assistant posts and some not so great experiences that left me quite disheartened and I recognise now contributed hugely to my decision to step away - and although HIT training wasnt where I had seen my career going, it felt like a rather silly decision to decline an offer whilst I was working as a band 4 research assistant. SOOOO....after 4 years out I think its been?? I have bitten the bullet and applied for

Birmingham (my test went pretty shockingly bad so i am not holding my breath)
Trent
Staffs
Cov and Warwick

and it feels good to be back :D

Man it feels really weird not to be posting on this thread this year, without the application process to mark my year I almost feel a little lost, hadn't even realised it was getting towards letter time!

Just wanted to say good luck to everyone!!!! :mrgreen: (especially those applying to Birmingham, join us! :wink: )

Good Lucky everybody :)

p.s. Didn't there used to be a rule about not posting your course selections until you had an update (I guess it's a bit too late now!)?
