Re: Question about applying for Bath

Hi Rannasaurus, From looking at the Alternative Handbook for 2014 entry it sounds like there is some psychodynamic teaching at Bath, it's just not its main focus. So you wouldn't be saying goodbye to it completely. Also, from what I've read overall it seems even if a course is not particularly focus...

UEL Test

Hi Everyone, The selection procedure for this year at UEL (I'm not sure if it was the same last year?) says that "all applicants will be emailed a link to a secure website and required to undertake tests of 1. Critical thinking 2. Judgement in complex situations" I just wanted to ask if an...

Re: What is your plan B?

Not all IAPT services are the same! I know of at least 2 within London where 90-100% of the triage assessments are done by the High Intensity workers.

Re: Too late to apply?

No it's not too late to apply. You can send the request for references right now, you don't have to submit your part first. So that will give your referees exactly one month to write them as the deadline for referees is 12 December 2013, whereas you have to submit your part by 3 December 2013. Good ...

Re: Long commute for work

Since the honoury position is only 1 day a week for 3 months do you think you'd be able to do it in the short term? It seems like you'd only have to make about 12 trips there and it sounds like valuable experience.

Re: Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (Midlands??)

Usually the Low Intensity courses only come hand in hand with a job as a trainee PWP. You have to find a job as a trainee in your local area and then your employer will send you to the course that covers your area. This may be why you cannot find a course online as you cannot usually do it without c...

Re: Bath Clinical Doctorate- Points for Academic Achievement

Could anyone that was shortlisted for Bath tell us their academic scores please? I'm also very interested to understand a bit better what the cut off point may be. I was very interested in applying for Bath, but I feel now looking at the scoring system that it would be a wasted shot as my score is o...

Re: Only 3000 characters for personal statement?

Thanks for the replies! Yes it's a very good skill to be concise so I can see why they do it.

While I like the idea of not using spaces completely Gilly I think I'll opt for no vowels instead!

Re: Only 3000 characters for personal statement?

Do blank spaces count as a character? I've had a search on the forum and on the Clearing House website but can't seem to see it. I'm guessing/hoping that they're not, it's just that Word gives character counts both with and without.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread, it's definitely made me think! I co-created a depression course for my service, along with the presentation slides and handouts. We then wrote up a report evaluating the course to apply for some funding, which was awarded to us, and subsequentl...

Re: requirement to have a car whilst on training

Thanks for the info blue86! Very helpful. I was thinking about applying to Surrey and Salomons but they were lower down my list. So I guess that helps me narrow down which ones I'll be applying to this year.

Re: requirement to have a car whilst on training

Does anyone know when you have to prove you can drive? Is it at the interview or before/after?

Would it be too ambitious to apply for a course where you need to drive without yet having a licence with the hope of learning and passing your test before needing to prove it?
