Alternative Handbook out now - free for all

Post by Randall » Fri Sep 09, 2016 7:21 pm

Hi all

The Alternative Handbook is now available for free - if you haven't come across it before, each year the Pre-Qualification Group (of the DCP, BPS) survey trainees from all of the courses for an independent and anonymous look at the courses.

Take a peek: https://www.bps.org.uk/system/files/use ... 7%20v4.pdf

Thanks for this! Slightly confused though; I suspect there have been misprints. Reading Newcastles entry , it keeps making reference to Plymouth, and the information is exactly the same as Plymouths entry. At a slight loss as to where Newcastle is...

I may be wrong, but isn't that Trent course a Nottingham University/Lincoln university joint collaboration? Ie at the moment it says it's based at Nottingham Trent University.

Yes, you're right Sarah, the Trent course is at the Universities of Nottingham and Lincoln, not at Nottingham Trent University.
