Re: Cov/Warwick 2016

Congrats all you guys. You're about to embark on a really tough three years, but you're going to love it (and hate it at times :) ) If you could take a minute to contribute to our ongoing surveys that would be great! We've been doing these since 2010, and I think it is really helpful to track peopl...

Re: Podcast, application review & personal development servi

As a student who is hoping to apply for the doctorate, I think these sound like a good idea. However, I think it would be very difficult for a lot of people to pay that much. To be honest, I am not really sure what they would entail, so I think it would be a very good idea to perhaps provide a free ...

Re: Online Application - Really a 3000 Character Limit?

So do all of the character limits definitely include spaces? I can't believe how short they are! I am applying for my first time this year and am really struggling with prioritising. I thought it would be best to give examples from my experiences, but this just eats up so many words. Also, are the ...

Re: Applying for 2015

Do you have any paid clinical experience, Gemma? If not, you probably will not get a place this year or maybe even for a few years. I posted along similar lines last year, which I have cut and pasted here: "AP/PWP posts, they are essential to help you learn the core basic therapeutic skills (well s...

Re: What experience did you have when you got on training?

I disagree. Go for it. Mainly you need evidence of commitment and a good early application shows that as much as dogged persistence. I know of one applicant who got a place this year straight from ug Thank you very much, this gives me a bit of hope! :D I know the chances are slim-to-none, but I was...

Re: Applying for 2015

I am unsure weather to apply again this year. My first time applying was with this last cycle of applications and I got 1 interview. I am just about to start a new AP job so feel that it would be difficult to apply again so soon after starting a job, difficult to know who to ask for a reference (ca...
