Coventry

Definitely too far down to get a place but I'm really pleased that they offer feedback even if you're a reserve. Would love to know how the rest of the Monday interview group did as everyone was so lovely!

I'm Coventry as well! I guess the wait continues!

Does anyone know how long the reserve list for Cov&Warwick usually is?

3rd time applicant, thought I'd share the ups and downs!

2014 -
UCL -> UCL
Bath -> Bath
Liverpool
Bangor

2015 -
UCL -> UCL
Herts
UEL
Liverpool

2016 - In September I left my assistant post to get a new one after 3 years with the team, and finally stopped my avoidance of practice interviews...
UCL
Bath
Manchester
Oxford -> Oxford

I withdrew from the other two as I had a very positive experience of interview at Oxford, and the fit felt right. I'm relieved it's over! I've really found every extra year of experience (and feedback) invaluable for personal and professional development so in ways I'm glad it ended up being 3 rounds.
Best of luck to everyone else with interviews yet to come :)

UCL
Manchester
Newcastle
Leicester

*self funded*
First time applicant and I am not sure what to expect throughout the application process
Think my chances for Leicester are pretty slim :cry: , but definitely appreciates the feedback given (something my home country does not practice, despite me calling / writing in for feedback)
Now I'm left with UCL, keeping fingers crossed for that!

Congratulations to all that have received a place!

Friendly request: for those of you who have gotten a place might you consider posting in "What experience did you have when you got on training?" As someone who works in a different country and has little access to people who have applied and got onto the course, this thread has been immensely helpful in planning.

Thanks!
