Re: Keeping well during DClinpsy Application

Thank you all for your replies they have been super helpful! I have definitely been checking the forum a lot more than I should... and actually I've lost my mindfulness focus something I would love to get back into! I find very often I compare myself to other applicants especially those that put my...

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

On another note, I thought the deadline for Surrey notifying applicants about interviews was March 1st, so just wondering whether anyone had heard from them. 3 of my colleagues have taken the test for Surrey and, as of today right now, have not received any feedback regarding interviews so looks li...

Re: Anybody else feeling hopeless about finding a relevant job?

I'm really sorry that you're going through this. The adult world is not a comforting place in many instances, and this process is a stark reminder of this fact. I just thought I would add some advice about applications. Following my masters, I spent two months solid applying to every AP job in the c...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

I do wonder whether people will see this as a paid stop gap between being an AP and a CP, similar to PWP. From the position of an AP like me, it would offer a funded master's degree, saving me £10k+, a formal qualification or certification in therapy (which an AP post rarely offers), and a two band ...

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Good luck everybody and congratulations to those who have interview offers! I've trawled back through the 2018 thread and resigned myself to the fact that none of my options sent out offers/rejections until 13th March last year so am making myself try to relax for this week....

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I need to pack for skiing this week :D 2. An article I had authored has been accepted for publication, but some complications have come up. The associated stress has long removed the initial elation. 3. I moved house recently - so glad it's mostly over. Moving boxes all weekend is not the kind of...

Re: Keeping well during DClinpsy Application

It's quite reassuring to see that I am not the only one pathologically checking my emails :lol: I found it quite useful to look back to last year's progress thread and see when I can expect to hear back from the courses. So far, my predictions of when I would hear back have been entirely accurate; i...

Just heard from Manchester.

UEA

Pretty disappointed as I received an interview from them last year, and I felt that my form has significantly improved since then.

Re: A week in the life of an Assistant Psychologist

I found my AP experience to be quite different to those listed above, so I thought I would add my own 'week in the life of an AP'. My AP position is full-time and in outpatient adult neuropsychology, and I have been in post for just over two years. Monday 9:00 - Get my computer loaded up and, import...

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

For me, falling short of a first was almost completely down to motivation and my approach to academic work. Right the way through my undergraduate studies I saw an essay as an annoying obstacle that I needed to get out of the way. I saw an essay as a piece of work that involves creating "two points ...

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Just had an email to say they are not going to use the STJ data for the shortlisting process, this is a shame because that was the only bit I thought went okay! Yeh, it's a shame that they couldn't have scrapped the written test :| That was the one that went badly for me. I wonder what the differen...
