Re: International (Canadian) Applying to Clinical Doctorate

I too lived in BC for a couple of years prior to training, and I strongly considered training there. To train in the UK, you'd either need to get permanent residency and live and work here for a number of years (I think 3 minimum) before you could apply for a funded place. Alternatively, you could a...

Re: Public vs private employment

Thank you for that thoughtful and interesting reply, Miriam. I find your description of disliking "middle management" interesting, and it seems to fit with my experience of working with several other clinical psychologists.

Public vs private employment

I just wanted to open up a discussion about working in the public service as a psychologist (i.e. NHS or similar) versus private work. I have spoken to a few clinical psychologists who have seemed pretty vehemently against working in private practice, but it wasn't appropriately to explore too deepl...

Re: Deciding to withdraw from the process

The big obstacle is that the standard route is secure and established, and it is incredibly scary for people at an early stage of their career to think of doing something away from the beaten path. However there is probably more scope in the longer term if people could start taking collaboration wi...

Re: UEA Results?

I suspect there's a delay on the admin side of things. Several people mentioned being told they would hear on Friday, so perhaps there's an illness or other delay holding things up. Frustrating, but I'm sure you'll hear soon :)

Re: University of East Anglia (UEA) Teaching Blocks & Days

Apart from the international students, everyone on the course has a car. Many placements involve home visits so you really need one every day. That being said, it does seem that some accommodation has been made for international students - they have generally been placed relatively centrally in Norw...

Re: course shortlisting dates 2017

I posted this last year. It might give a very rough guideline of when different courses tend to get back to applicants, but it hasn't been updated for the 2016 intake. Deadlines: 2016 – 11th March 2015 – 13th March 2014 – 14th March 2013 – 15th Mar 2012 – 16th Mar 2011 - 18th Mar Sorry about the for...

Re: Applying to Bath

I don't know what the cut-off score for Bath is, but they certainly place a high value on academic success. This may be helpful: http://www.bath.ac.uk/psychology/clinical/how-to-apply/selection-process.pdf You would score 25/50 points, by the looks of it. I'm really just guessing, but I think anyone...

Re: Easier route to clinical psychology?

Also, I think many of the universities actively recruit international students for the self-funded places, to strengthen links with other countries in a mutually beneficial way. I wonder if EU students applying for a self-funded place may be disadvantaged in that regard. Our self-funded trainees are...

Re: Courses to avoid?

UEA put quite a bit of emphasis on research experience. Several of my fellow trainees have only worked as RAs (albeit in a clinical setting).

Re: UK Citizen Applying from Abroad

I seem to recall reading that it was that you need to be resident for 3 out of the last 5 years. I was abroad for 2 years prior to applying, but I emphasized that I was on a temporary, fixed-term visa and that I had maintained an address and bank accounts etc in the EU while I was away. I also conta...

Re: Putting WISC-V materials online- illegal or not?

I would imagine that it most certainly does violate copyright law, and Pearson would not be happy if they knew videos like that were online.

Re: Have you done Level A psychometric testing training?

Level A tests are, according to Pearson at least, not restricted in the slightest. So a random person on the street can buy Level A tests. In Canada, I (with a Masters' qualification) can administer any test but I can only interpret the results of Level A and B. I would think that Level A tests are ...
