How did you/would you celebrate getting a place?

First of all I just want to acknowledge that this thread might be a bit sad for those who didn't get a place this year. This was my third year applying, so I am well aware of how horrible and gruelling the process can be (or at least, it was for me anyway!). But I have just been offered a place and ...

Any Oxford trainees have insight when applicants might hear?

Hi all, I have an interview for an Irish program, but I also applied to Oxford and the interviews are scheduled for a similar time. Now, I'm not holding out much hope because I know how crazy competitive Oxford it, but on the OFF-CHANCE I did get an interview, I want to try and get the scheduling so...

Managing recommendation templates for assessment reports?

Hi folks, I am currently working with a service that does a lot of psychological assessments. We have dozens of Word docs with templates of recommendations for different presentations, but I'd really like to find a better way of doing things, maybe using Excel or Access. Just wondering if anyone has...

Queen's- understanding of psychological knowledge and skills

Hi guys, I am really struggling with one of the sections of my application to Queen's: Use and understanding of psychological knowledge and skills. I'm not looking for a specific answer, but just generally, I'm wondering how might I approach this? I'm not even sure what they're referring to. Might t...

Anxiety groups in CAMHS

Hello there! A colleague (CNS) and I (AP) would like to run a group for some young people in our service who experience anxiety. At the moment I'm trying to gather as much information as possible.

Have you done Level A psychometric testing training?

Howdy, I've noticed a few ads for training in Level A Psychometric testing (which is apparently recognised by the BPS?). Wondering if it might give me a leg up for jobs, especially because I'm considering moving to Canada when I finish my masters. Anyone have any experience of these courses? Or are ...

I worked in MH in Australia- here's how (v.long!)

Hi folks, I don't know if this will be useful to anyone but I wish someone had passed this info on to me so here it goes! Sorry if it's in the wrong section! So I found it very difficult to get paid work in Psychology at home (had First class honours, 2 years experience in research,AMH, and CAMHS). ...

Re: Making the most of an AP post (not much work ATM)

Thanks for the fantastic advice you guys! I've started looking at the very basic database they have and filling it out a bit to see what analysis could be done down the line. Shadowing other team members is a great idea. I got chatting to the SLT yesterday and she offered for me to sit in on some of...

Making the most of an AP post (not much work ATM)

Hey guys, I've just started in an unpaid AP post. I'm a little while into the job and things are very quiet. The supervisor is lovely but I think he's still getting to know me and not sure what kind of work to give me. On top of that it is the summer and there's a lot of people not turning up to app...

Courses with selection tests - no personal statement

Howdy! Just wondering if anyone knows offhand if there are any other courses like Lancaster where interview selection is just based on the tests and not on the personal statement? Felt that my personal statement let me down last year but did pretty well on the GMA (not well enough to get an intervie...

Thoughts on MSc Applied Psychology at Queen's vs UU

Hi guys, I've been accepted to the MSc Applied Psychology at UU in Derry. I'm thinking of applying to the one in Queen's as well. My reasons for that would be I really like Belfast (Derry is great too, but Belfast is nearer to my friends and family) and I like that Queen's has a D.Clin course. I was...

Relevant experience in NI

Hey folks, my partner has been offered a job in Northern Ireland (Belfast or Derry, not sure yet), so I'm trying to figure out what to do myself. I live in the Republic so am not as familiar with the mental health services there. I have tried to do some research on AP roles in the North but am comin...
