Re: Can I make it?

I didn’t have anywhere near the experience you did when I graduated from undergrad and am now a trainee. I know on the very odd occasion people have got on straight from undergrad but I would say the time before the doctorate when you are gaining experience is invaluable and I would in many ways lov...

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

Salomons, uel, Herts and Lancaster seem to be at one end of the spectrum. Then courses like Liverpool, Bangor, Leeds, Plymouth, Leicester probably fit in next Then lots of courses I don’t have a clue about Then you go to the more researchy ones like iop, Royal Holloway, Manchester etc. All courses h...

Re: Reserve list for places 2019

A brief update for fellow reserves at Leeds - there's been some movement at the bottom of the reserve list and 10 out of the 16 have accepted. I'm first reserve so can post again if/when I hear anything :salut: Does anyone know if Leeds tends to use its reserve list? I know it's one of the later co...

Re: 'Coming out' with a MH history

It’s interesting as a trainee that I feel this is changing a bit as I know several assistants, trainees and newly qualified who are open about having lived experience of some form or other. I’ve been open and have never felt much stigma around within the profession itself and if it has been there I ...

Re: Moving to do DClinPsy

I would say where are the placements located? As some universities have massive placement areas like Bangor whilst others share placement areas eg the north London courses and Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester. You may find that placement wise you have a much shorter commute and you just to have t...

Re: Beginning the journey

Two things as a current trainee we were having a meeting the other day at uni and talking about things. One of the tutors says she used to recommend students got experience whilst an undergrad now she recommends they focus on getting the best degree possible (experience is a bonus but won’t make up ...

Re: Applying for 2019 Clinical Doctorate

If I knew I meet the criteria to be invited for a selection test then I started revising prior to the invites I think. I should say that I was starting from scratch in terms of revision hence starting before the invite!

Re: How much can trainees afford in rent?

I bought my flat when I got onto training and I think I pay £500 in total. I do save more and have bills on top. The salary is going up next month for trainees so I would say you could definitely afford it but think about things like will you be travelling home a lot, if you have a car how much does...

Re: Deferring place due to pregnancy? Can anyone help?!

One of the trainees on my cohort was in a similar situation and was advised to start the course and go on maternity leave as if funding changed she would have her place guaranteed.

That said from all accounts the course were brilliant with it all but this didn't relate to me.

Congratulations to all those who have interviews!
