Psychological Therapies in Primary Care Application for 2022

Post by ellydxo »

Hey. I'm planning on applying to the MSc in Psychological Therapies in Primary Care this year and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on having a successful application and getting to interview stage? I don't currently have a lot of experience (I have one year of volunteering with children affected by alcohol use, and a 2:1 in my BSc Psychology degree) but I'm really hoping to make the most of the 6 or so months I have before applications open. I currently have a promising lead to work as a healthcare assistant for the NHS and I'm thinking this will count towards the healthcare/clinical experience they say is desirable. What else can I do to make my application stand out in such a short amount of time? I was thinking of completing some online courses but any that I find seem to either be for more qualified practitioners or just useless courses which aren't really properly accredited by anyone and are a waste of time and money. I don't know if anyone knows of any worthy CBT courses or similar that would be beneficial to my application?

Also if anyone who has already completed the MSc or gained a place for this year has any advice or could tell me what experience they had before getting accepted I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much for reading :)
