Re: Plans for the year ahead

Apologies in advance if my question derails this thread a little, but this is the second time recently that a thread has mentioned a low 2:1 and I wanted to ask a quick question as I have clinical experience and a good mark from a recent, relevant post-grad certificate, but my psych degree is a low ...

Re: Getting relevant experience for a Dclin without prior ex

Hi Jason, I remember the frustration of feeling unable to apply for jobs due to not having the relevant experience but not knowing how to get the experience in the first place; it can feel so difficult when you first leave uni! As someone with no NHS experience either, I wanted to echo Miriam's post...

Re: Interview failures to successes

Hi Anniecat, I've been following this thread with interest as I'm in a similar position to you with this being my first year applying and having one interview (which wasn't successful). I had similar feelings about the interview with feeling convinced that I wasn't going to be successful and feeling...

Re: Newman University MSc September 2015

Hi, Do you mean the Clinical Applications of Psychology MSc? You wouldn't need to apply through UCAS for this course as it is a taught masters, just download an application form from the website.

Re: Life After Suicide - BBC

Hi Jyddx, I haven't yet watched this so can't offer any views on the programme. However I found a similar thing in my undergrad/early experience, in that there wasn't much teaching which actually touched on practical suicide prevention skills. About 4 years ago, I went on the ASIST training course (...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

I just wanted to hopefully relieve people's anxieties about when Plymouth are letting everyone know.

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

For anyone waiting on Cardiff, just spoken to the (ever helpful) office at Cardiff Uni. They are finalising results now and hoping to have them all out (by email - from them not the clearing house) tomorrow, if anyone’s waiting, so I thought I’d share for other nail biters. Thanks for this, will be...

Re: How do undergrads get relevant experience?

I'm not sure from your post how much experience you already have, so forgive me if I'm aiming my advice at the wrong level.... If you don't have much experience to build on, aiming for positions such as support work or voluntary work such as Nightline, Childlike, Samaritans, befriending etc might be...
