Funding

I notice the Clearing House site has been updated for the new round of applications. However, it seems the position regarding funding is still unclear. I know it is still quite early and that the site wasn't updated with firm info about funding until the end of September last year but it seems this ...

Re: Self directed study - Counselling Psychology

Hi Danielle I didn't choose to do this in the end but i explored it thoroughly. It is quite a complex path to chartership but may suit some people. It is quite difficult to distil the information provided by the BPS down into simple terms. Personally I found the way things are set out complicated an...

Re: Applying with the Double Tick system

HI there I very much relate to the OP's concerns about using the Double Tick scheme and feeling like I would be somehow exploiting the system (even though I have a disability that has had and has a significant effect on my life). Because of that, the first time I made an application I did not tick t...

Leeds current trainees?

Hi there I wonder if there are any Leeds current (or recently finished) trainees who wouldn't mind answering a few questions (feel free to PM if that feels more comfortable). What is the pattern of teaching and study days on the programme? The most recent Alternative Handbook says first year study d...

I too have issues with formulating my thoughts into crisp, clear sentences when in an interview I really care about I generally cope with pressure well (work, home life, study...) but these interviews bring ou...

Re: ranking of university matters?

So my question is - is the ~calibre~ of an institution taken into account during doctorate shortlisting? Will doing my masters at UEL hinder my application in the eyes of other course centres? Hi there I did a conversion MSc at UEL and also had an undergrad from a uni with a rather underwhelming rep...

London HI 2015

I have been offered a HI training role in London. The offer was made verbally but I have not yet had official confirmation. I know there is a while until the start date but I have also been offered a couple of other positions (that I accepted before I got this offer) and don't want to mess those peo...

Re: HI Interviews

Thank you so much Christian and Copsy for taking the trouble to respond. I really appreciated it. Your replies were reassuring and helpful. I had my interview and it was fine. I don't think I will get on because the competition is so fierce and there are so many fantastic people applying for these v...

HI Interviews

I have just been invited for interview at one of the London HI courses. I applied for this very last minute having failed to get on Clinical training this year so was extremely surprised when I got the email.

Re: Reflections on 4th application and not on training

I would completely echo all that's been said so far (plus what has already been said on the thread on interview 'failures') My experience was that I fell down (again 3 interviews and not even a reserve offer)absolutely through not being myself - partly due to nerves and partly due to trying to be 'w...

Re: Interview failures to successes

Oh thank you all so much - I am honestly so grateful. I can't tell you how much you have all helped me. I think not being in the sort of job that gives me the opportunity to connect with others familiar with this process and not having any friends on this path has left me particularly confused as to...
