Re: Edinburgh doctorate NHS boards

Oh I'm glad they've changed a bit with that jessicaaa - when I interviewed back in 2014, on the day I couldn't change at all because of the health board interviewing me already. So I suddenly really didn't want to be put in Elgin, but I was being interviewed in the north rather than the south, and ...

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

IOPPN Birmingham Edinburgh UEA Pretty shocked. Feeling pleased. Also just wanted to note that I got an alert that someone in Edinburgh had googled my name. I thought that these apps were anonymous? Guess I was mistaken! Hi Ben, How do you know they googled you? I thought they were anonymous too, th...

Re: Edinburgh doctorate NHS boards

Didn't we have to rank all placements? I'm a little foggy on the details of the preference forms. If it's last on your list then it shouldn't really be an issue, should it?

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Good luck everybody and congratulations to those who have interview offers! I've trawled back through the 2018 thread and resigned myself to the fact that none of my options sent out offers/rejections until 13th March last year so am making myself try to relax for this week.... Southampton Oxford K...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Because of the time difference, I have developed an unhealthy habit of waking up at 2am and checking application status. I need to stop, but I can't. 2. Last night I dreamt IOPPN offered me an interview and I woke up thinking this was real. 3. I hate how much this process is dictating conscious t...

Re: Bangor

Wondering where the Great Big Progress thread is? It looks like people have heard back from UEA and Bangor at this point.

Billing for Time

Hi all, I'm hoping to source some advice from the community regarding billing for time. I'm working with a psychiatrist part-time, however, there is no fixed amount of time I'm to work with him per day or per week. My payment is dependent on work available threw out the day- I'm primarily involved i...

Re: What is the view on online/distance learning masters?

I'd honestly consider going the QMUL route, I think I paid just under 7k for my MSc. I was in your position about two years ago and was seriously considering the KCL MSc, however, you rightly point out the exorbitant cost. The lectures and teachings on the course were brilliant, and I felt that the ...

Re: International Student--Personal statement advice?

Hi Tashi,

Unfortunately, due to the differences in both the program and mental health system, I don't think this forum will be of much help to you.

I think you'll probably find plenty of other US-based forums out there.

Re: Any interest in an applications webinar?

I'm not sure that six is enough to make it viable, and I've been very busy with other commitments, so I don't want to over commit. But I am prepared to review applications as I have done in previous years, in return for a donation to a charity of my choice. I'm hoping I can find an online way for p...
