Re: THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT CLINPSY

Congratulations! There's nothing selfish about giving yourself credit for an excellent achievement! Well done on being offered the position you both want and have worked hard for. Life has a habit of taking us down paths we don't always expect, but these paths often lead to something great and life...

Thank you for all your support ClinPsy

Dear all, I just wanted to thank you all for your continuous support the last 5 years. You are all probably thinking oh she got on the course etc... You are both right and wrong. This years application was the best for me with 2 interviews (UEA & RHUL). However, I will be withdrawing from my UEA pla...

Re: Reserve list for places 2020

I will be withdrawing from UEA in the next 7 days so the reserve list should move and hopefully someone will hear something. I have finally received email confirmation of my ESRC PhD studentship funding. I have been told that I will receive formal written offer in the next 7 days. Once I have this I...

Re: Reserve list for interviews 2020

Anyone on RHUL interview waiting list should hear something in the next 7 days. I am due to interview at RHUL on the 19th. I will be withdrawing as I have finally received email confirmation of my ESRC PhD studentship funding. I have been told that I will receive formal written offer in the next 7 d...

Re: Video Interviews

Oh that's sounds great, well done! Are you able to decide once you hear from the Doctorate or do you need to accept now? It's such a tough decision, but it's better than not having a decision to make :) Yes, I've got an interview with Manchester. They have announced that the interview is only 15 mi...

Re: Video Interviews

I'm sorry to hear your experience was similar and I do hope you are feeling better. I struggled with hearing the questions as well and also, the interviewers were so close to their cameras I was unable to see their faces probly so reading any responses was impossible. I had two ppl interviewing and...

Re: Video Interviews

It sounds like video interviews have been tough for lots of people, it's completely understandable. Be kind to yourselves, no one expected it to be this way, and you won't be the only ones who struggled. And remember that everyone had to do interviews this way, and while it might have suited some m...

Re: Video Interviews

Reflecting back (I had my interview on Monday, so I gave it some time for my emotions to calm down) I believe that the online interview wasn't a great experience. I let the anxiety take over and I wasn't able to calm myself quick enough. I found it challenging to build rapport with people who were ...

Re: Video Interviews

Hi, I somehow managed to get two interviews this year and this is my first year of applying. Both universities have now confirmed that the interview will be online; this has increased my anxiety levels as I have never done Doctorate interview nor an online interview. I feel that I cannot present my...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

I thought I should post so that I add to the multiple applications list in hopes that it will alleviate some of the worries that comes with no interviews. This is probably my 4th/5th application- lost count. 1st time was 2014 and I had an interview with Holloway and reserve at UCL. Since then no int...

Re: Visa related issue

I don't understand why you switched to a spouse visa. Wouldn't you be in a better position if you hadn't? I am assuming this is for me... I switched because private life is a 10 year route whilst spouse is 5 years. So it saves me money and time..as each 2.5 years was costing me almost £2000.. Plus ...

Re: What to do next!

Hi Everyone, Apologies if this is long and in the wrong section. I am after some advice really. Background I graduated in 2011 with a low 2:1 from UCL. I could have done much better academically as my A Levels were excellent (4 A*). However, I lost my mother, sister and grandfather within a space o...
