Re: Postgraduate or experience?

This sounds like you don't really know the basics about the career path, so you might want to read the wiki and some of the pinned threads. There is no compulsory components of the experience you need to gain - you just need to show you can think like a psychologist, with reflective scientist practi...

Re: Clinical Audit assistance

You can talk about it with your supervisor, who will tell you what they want doing. You don't need to go in as an expert. But it is reasonable to know what defines an audit - particularly given we have definitions on this site.

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I feel like Lancaster is the most inclusive of courses - in terms of their minimum criteria so that doesn't surprise me. I know you are very inclusive in terms of experience and academic grades, I just thought that all courses got a share of the applicants that don't meet the requirements for train...

Re: Questions about PWP

I completed a year working essentially as an honorary assistant psychologist (but can't call it that because I didn't have as much direct clinical contact) in an inpatient CAMHS unit. Just to be a pedant, but an AP post is not defined by the level of clinical contact. It is defined by the job title...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I suspect that figure will vary significantly based on the specific programme. Our rate would be under 1% for example. You think less than 1% of applicants don't have GBC? Or don't have right to live and work in the UK? Or don't have completed qualifications to the standard required? I'd be very su...

Re: HI interview invitation but do I have the experience?

If they have offered you an interview the obviously think it possible you can do the job, but be honest about the limits to your current knowledge and express willingness to learn rather than trying to cram and then blag as if your experience is more extensive than it is.

Re: Online survey for research on sexual harassment (age 18+)

Soir9 (I think) has a missing category for 7-19 sexual partners. This is quite a long survey, and the main qualitative questions are ambiguous - as a "positive" response presumably means something that has an element that would be rewarding for you, rather than that the other party would respond pos...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

Its the odds, the ratio between applicants and places. So the worst odds are from the 500 applicants for the 10 places at Coventry and Warwick (50:1). The best odds are from Salomans where they have almost the same number of applicants for 34 places (15:1). Ah, cool, thanks. On my phone it looked l...

Re: Publications and Dissemination section

I put in all service development projects I've done, such as inputting into care pathways, service evaluations or audits. Most services or trusts have newsletters or something similar and I wrote some really small pieces in there and classed that as a publication, they can also be referenced even t...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I'm not sure there are any clear patterns, but if I were to try to draw out some trends the courses that have the lowest ratios of applicants to places seem to be those that are perceived as geographically far flung (East Anglia, Glasgow, Edinburgh, South Wales), the larger courses that are perceive...

Re: Should I apply for a clinical doctorate, or gain more experience?

It didn't upset me. It was just slightly infuriating because you have uncritically absorbed rumours we have worked for 12 years to disband, and didn't look at any of the existing forum content (including numerous pinned threads and wiki entries) that deal with these topics, despite coming on here to...

Re: Should I apply for a clinical doctorate, or gain more experience?

This is an infuriating post for a number of reasons: 1) You clearly haven't read any of the many posts on the forum that deal with these ridiculous rumours about "people with PhDs that have been turned down, as well as people who have been gaining experience for up to ten years, who have been turned...
