Re: Control Group Needed for DClin Study

I found this difficult as there was nowhere to indicate not having/ not having had a mother/father in your life on the questions regarding the treatment you and your sibling received from your parents.

Re: Leeds current trainees?

Hi SarahCK Congratulations on your offers. It really depends on your personal preferences, budget and how close you want to be to uni. A very popular and nice area is Chapel Allerton, to the north of the city. If you are wanting to live alone, it is pretty expensive, but you'll find houseshares for ...

Re: Leeds current trainees?

Hi icebluesparkles, Teaching days are 9.30-4.30 and placement days are 8 hours long, you can usually negotiate the hours with your supervisor, so I tend to do 8-4 or 8.30-4.30. In the first 2 years, each placement is just under 6 months. Half the cohort starts with an adult placement and half with a...

Re: Leeds current trainees?

HI Anniecat, The teaching and study time arrangements vary across the three years and there are some changes planned for next year. As far as I know it will look like this: First year: Mon-Wed placement Thur-Fri teaching (over the course of the year you get the equivalent of half a day per week or 1...

Re: Courses to avoid?

I think Sheffield and Leeds put their shortlisting criteria on their websites. My cohort at Leeds aren't particularly researchy I don't think but people typically had 3+ years of clinical experience at the start of the course.

Re: Telephone Interview with The Priory

If you use the search function, you should be able to find the 'gigantic list of interview questions'. I'd be thinking about issues such as engagement, risk, safeguarding, team work, boundaries and personal qualities. If it's a client group you haven't worked with before, might be worth reading up o...

Re: Mental disorders among mental health professionals

Would recruiting online not get round the issue of numbers? For example a questionnaire on this forum? Whether you go for qualitative or quantitative should usually be dictated by the question that you are trying to answer. Reading existing literature should give you an idea of what's been done and ...

Re: Easier route to clinical psychology?

If you look in the wiki section (at the top of the page) there's lots of information about the process of getting a place on the doctorate. There's also a few threads about what experience people had and how many years they worked for before getting a place, I think those are in this section of the ...

Re: Reflection on your work/research experience

Courses generally explain their minimum requirement in terms of experience on their website or the clearing house website. For example, Leeds state that applicants need at least 12 months full time experience (or equivalent) that has been gained after completion of the qualification that confers GBC...

Re: Is this relevant??

Hi, Whether or not it ‘counts’ will depend on what you learn from it and how well you convey it on the form. I wouldn’t worry about what school it belongs to, the Leeds DClin course is part of the School of Medicine, these things don’t always make sense. Autism and neuropsychology research sounds ve...

Re: Placement areas / commute times

At Leeds, 45-60mins seems to be quite standard, but some do have shorter commutes if its right next to where they live. The placements cover West Yorkshire and there isn't really any competition with other local courses as Sheffield covers South Yorkshire and Hull covers North Yorkshire. It's a smal...

Re: Should I choose UCL or KCL?

Congratulations on your offers! I don't think it's a question anyone else can answer for you though, it's a big decision and there is no single 'best course', it's really subjective. They are all slightly different, although more alike than different at the end of day, so you need to think about wha...

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

Owl I really hope by getting into study mode you mean fitting in as much relaxation and fun as possible before the course starts! I reckon that's the best way to prepare :) I didn't do any work before I started, it really didn't matter they do ease you in and I'm now so glad I didn't because the cou...
