Re: A reason to be positive...

I really like the idea of this, I’m definitely feeling like some positivity is needed in the world! So my reason to be positive today is: My roses have been cleared of greenfly and are producing buds! I was worried that they might die off as they were bought in memory of someone very special so I’m ...

Re: Courses with selection tests - no personal statement

I would just add that at my Surrey interview interviewees were told that selection after interview was made based both on interview and on the selection test score, whereas Salomons uses the selection test to select for interview then bases decision on selection of trainees solely on interview.

Re: Advice for a new graduate

I notice you said you don't want to feel like you're 'wasting your time' or 'getting into debt for no reason'. If the reason for doing the masters is because it's a check box exercise I would advise against it. Yes, a masters can be really useful particularly when applying for certain posts that do ...

Re: IAPT versus Assistant Psychologist

Hi Sally, Any clinical experience is relevant and I have known people get on the course with support work experience, clinical research experience, IAPT experience and AP experience.
