Re: First ever AP interview at 26 - so nervous!

Hi Swiftiehd, Congratulations on your interview. My first advice (as I'm guessing you may be quite new to this website, seeing as this is your first post) is go explore the WIKI's - there is a whole WIKI about interviews with lots of relevant info, questions etc. Don't worry if some of the posts see...

Re: Reference from a Counselling Psychologist

I don't think you would be penalised. The content of the reference would be more important than who gave it - especially if the difference was only clinical vs counselling psychologist as I would expect both to have a good understanding of what training entails and therefore how a candidate may fair...

Re: Publications and Dissemination section

Also to add - in my (albeit somewhat limited) experience not every form/candidate has disseminated work and they can be a good candidate without this so don't feel you have to put something in

Re: Publications and Dissemination section

I have shortlisted several times for 1 course and I would agree with Miriam - keep it to dissemination as outlined on the form. Keep it brief and don't feel you have to fill all the box. For the course I shortlist for I am asked to rate the overall quality of the form as one part - if it added to my...

Re: Frustrated that my career is on hold

Hi Prosopon, Congratulations on your pregnancy - I hope the remaining months go more smoothly. I can understand your frustration - although I have only been pregnant since being qualified for me the balance has been similar - wanting to progress my career but also wanting a family - both are equally...

Re: Second chance from widthdrawn from interview?

I don't know your circumstances, and this may not be applicable at all, but if you are claiming job seekers allowance (possibly other benefits too, I'm unaware) they can provide funding for travel to interviews - or they did when I claimed 10 years ago and needed support attending a last minute inte...

On a recent CPD training course I did we had many different fields representing which was interesting. People in private practice, working for relate, occupational psychologists, a private practitioner who worked with businesses to consider their management styles - lots of different fields that I w...

Re: Bachelor degree completed in a second language as a justification for lower mark?

I would be tempted to just stick with the academic reference explanation. A MSc is a higher grade qualification and highlights you can work at a post degree level to a high level. To me this trumps your undergraduate result. Personally I would worry that mentioning English is not your first language...

Re: Are there any part-time voluntary roles that count as sufficient prior experience to the doctorate?

There are research assistant Psychologist posts that are advertised either privately or via the NHS. Clinical trials officer roles may also be relevant. It might be helpful to be aware though that some courses only accept a minimum of 12 months paid full time relevant experience, without this forms ...

Re: Clinical Experience

Hi Rkjt, Welcome to the forum. Firstly I want to say focus on getting the highest grade in your undergraduate degree. You appear to have held some roles that could be very useful clinical experience. It is hard to say just from job titles and for all clinical doctorate applications my advice is the ...

Re: Getting the most out of clinical training

Training is such a rollacoaster (or at least it was for me) I definitely learnt a lot but also learnt what more I needed to learn (if that makes sense?)- WM's analogy is a great one - I definitely did not feel like an elite formula one racing driver following training but a new learner driver! It wo...

Re: What to do after graduating undergrad??

Different courses have different requirements for clinical experience - clearing house is a great resource for finding out this in terms of minimum requirements. For example some require a minimum equivalent of 1 year full time paid relevant experience. The key as you have picked up on is translatin...

Re: Only applying to one course centre

When I shortlisted I could see where else someone had applied - but it had absolutely no bearing on how I shortlisted their application for the university I was shortlisting for, and I really didn't care if they had applied to 1 or 4 courses!! My experience of shortlisting was that I had a strict cr...
