Re: Only applying to one course centre

Every course centre can see which other course centres an application has gone to. That doesn't mean that information is given to a shortlister - or that anyone would care.

Re: Confusion between various masters degree program

As per the BPS site, "To join as a Graduate Member, you'll need to have achieved at least a 2:2 in an undergraduate degree accredited by the Society". Having a third will be an issue with SOME programmes but by no means ALL programmes. Many will rightly look at your Masters as evidence of ...

Re: Applying with the Double Tick system

I'm sure programmes will be happy to give you information on why you were shortlisted and if it involved use of the scheme if you ask them.

Re: Applying with the Double Tick system

RJ, my worry is that the assessors may not hold the same views as the institution as a whole. And thank you Lingua, that is really reassuring. You've pretty much summed up how I have always felt about it, glad to know that I'm not the only one who has felt that way. My experiences of working with m...

Re: Applying with the Double Tick system

My question would be would you actually want to go to a programme that thought the double tick scheme was an attempt to get around competition?

Re: course shortlisting dates 2017

Lancaster use all contact with candidates as part of their assessment of that candidate. I'm aware of other programmes that also do this. Why would a programme not be interested in the manner of contact that a candidate makes with various team members and their conduct during that contact? Informati...
