Re: Overlap of MSc and Doctorate courses...what happens

Many universities offer "exit degrees" which you could consider if you start the MSc and then get onto the DClin. Successful completion of 60 credits in your MSc would ordinarily allow you to exit with a PGCert (post-grad certificate) in the subject, and 120 credits (usually everything but the thesi...

Dress code when working clinically: Appropriate "masculine" clothing?

Hi all, Just wanted to throw a question out there to all those who adopt a typically "masculine" dress code for clinical work. I'm a first year trainee and up until now I've typically work black/dark blue (non-jean) trousers and a shirt. I've always been a little unsure of "proper" dress code - ther...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Would like to mirror ChrisCross and wish those who interviewed at Lancaster the very best of luck! I was floating about on Wednesday and it was really great to meet you all. And just to reiterate what Chris said in being kind to yourself if it's a "not right now" - you were all amazing and it seemed...

Re: PsyTweeps - get involved in a public engagement initiati

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to everyone who's already gotten involved as we approach 500 followers! So glad that we've been able to spread psychological knowledge and reduce mental health stigma across Twitter. Cheers!

PsyTweeps - get involved in a public engagement initiative!

Hi everyone, I'm not sure how many people on here follow NHS on twitter - but they have a great public engagement initiative where a different employee takes over their account every week! You might remember that Dr Ben Ilan-Zion (clinical psychologist) took over the account for a week last year. Th...

Re: How to list your qualifications after your name?

Hi Student11, As far as I'm aware, in the UK, post-nominal letters would be listed by university degree (in ascending order), followed by membership of learned societies, regardless of how accreditation ot this society was achieved. So, yours would be Firstname Lastname, BSc (Hons), MSc, MBPsS. (But...

Re: Let's hear from those of you who found it relatively eas

Hi Woody, I'm not sure if 'easy' is quite the right expression - but my journey was certainly smoother than some I've read on here! I'm 23, have relatively little experience, and feel like I've certainly 'broken the mold' into entry with an unorthodox backstory, so here goes. Similarly to Chris, her...

Re: Undergraduate stats help

Hi Kezkel, I feel your pain! Stats used to be the scourge of my existence and really affected my 2nd year course mark - I'd thoroughly recommend ' Introduction to Statistics in Psychology ' by Howitt & Cramer - it teaches everything at a deep level, but in an easy-to-understand format! Ignore that i...

Re: Lancaster 2017

Great news Roz, congratulations!! You must be ecstatic :D Have been browsing property sites for places to rent but don't know much about the area. I'll be moving up with my partner so hopefully I'll feel more settled but it's going to be a big change for sure. I feel a bit like you, Suzy, lots to t...

Re: Lancaster 2017

Hi Chris, Suzy!

Overwhelmed and a little in shock to say that I'll be joining you in Lancaster next year! :D I'll be living close by - I actually went to Lancaster for my undergrad so I know a little about the area if you want any tips :)

Excited to start! :D

If anyone knows about the status of the Lancaster reserve list (or is planning on refusing (?)), I'd really appreciate an update - so close I can taste it!!

Re: Is it realistic as a career changer? And MSc advice.

Hi Laura! I'm not a career changer, but i might still be able to offer some help on some of your other points - I'm currently studying a masters (in biology) full time alongside a 20 hr/week job (as I'm not receiving support from family/partner). It's difficult, so youll have to be prepared to make ...

Re: Reserve List Updates Thread

Lancaster update from yesterday: Two places have moved since results were first announced (so if you came in as 3rd reserve, you're 1st reserve now), around 7/8 places still to accept.

Fingers crossed a couple more of us make it! :D
