Re: Exeter 2017

If you are Exeter based, you might find yourself working at the RD&E at some point within the 3 years (don't just mean the wards, some Community services are also based there such as the AMH Psychology). I found living nearby helpful as it costs £9 a day to park there, and as an Exeter-based trainee...

Re: Exeter 2017

Maybe I can help you a bit here too. I finished the Exeter course last September. I was a Devon trainee for the whole 3 years and my final year was partially spent on placement in Barnstaple. This was a long commute from Exeter, which would be hard to do even 3 times a week (I was there only 1 day a...

Re: Plymouth or/and Exeter or/and based in Cornwall

I just wanted to draw people's attention to being a bit more careful about repeating the rumors and gossip they hear about certain courses. Things are later repeated and taken for granted in my view. As a recent Exeter DClinPsy graduate I wanted to make you aware that the course teaches CBT, the Psy...

Re: What experience did you have when you got on training?

Hello, Hope my post helps some of you that are applying this year. I am 29 years old and graduated in 2009. I had two interview invitations this year which was my 2nd application. My first interview resulted in an offer, so I could cancel my second one. I had no interviews in my first application, o...

Re: Interviews seem Scary

Hi Amadea, What helped me a lot when I was preparing for my interviews was a mock interview facilitated by my supervisor and her friend, also a CP. It was something she kindly offered and I was very grateful as it helped me to practise being on the spot. The way we have done it was that I was asked ...

Re: Leeds Clearing House website

Thanks. I find it really difficult (already) to be reflective. I know I have done a lot, and have learnt a lot, but articulating it in a few sentences (in which we have one shot - for now - to achieve it) I am finding extremely difficult. Hi Enid, I still remember thinking I will never be able to p...

Re: Exeter 2013

Hello to all meeting tomorrow!

To stop us from eyeing each other up, and some poor strangers happening to be around, I wanted to say that I am short with long, dark hair and will be wearing a long, green maxi dress! I will be outside of Boston Tea Party at 12! See you there!

Re: Exeter 2013

With the 24th approaching very quickly (and me getting more and more excited about the Course every day) shall we plan our meeting place for our lunch? I was thinking of meeting outside of Boston Tea Party, if it rains we can stay there, or if the weather is nice, we can think of going down to the Q...

Re: When courses say a good 2:1...

To all other candidates with a low 2:1 (I am sure I wrote it somewhere here before) I have been successful being in that position, not having done a Masters degree. I have not applied for any courses with selection tests either and received two invitations for interviews and later an offer from a co...

Re: change from fornesic to clinical

Hi CharlotteD, I would not agree that CP Doctorates focus mainly on mental health and not on PD and behaviour, like you worded it. I probably understand what you meant, however the above may be a very misleading, generic statement and in my opinion does not describe what CPs do. Also, it's not just ...

Re: 7 years later - now what?

Hi Bubbly, I am sorry that you found yourself in such difficult situation! I remember a feeling of dread when I was faced with some, very difficult decisions! My experience tells me it is also one of those that only you can make as no one will ever know what is best for you apart from..YOU :) Once f...

Re: Exeter 2013

Hello, I came across this year's series of talks called 'Psychology in the pub' organised by a local BPS Branch which takes place in Exeter. I am thinking of coming to the one next week. Three of them are scheduled for September onwards too so those of you that are not down in Exeter yet could come ...
