    Can anyone who has applied to or got a place in Audiology answer a few questions for me? I'm thinking of applying next year, but am a bit confused by a couple of things:

    1. When you qualify as a Clinical Scientist in Audiology, are you then a qualified audiologist? I'm confused what the difference between an audiologist and a clinical scientist (audiology) is.

    2. What jobs are you actually qualified to apply for in the end? I read that Clinical Scientists are trained at Band 6 and generally apply for jobs at Band 7 once qualified. However, I've been looking at the NHS Jobs website, and can't really find anything like this for audiology. There are a view vacancies for Audiologists at Band 5, and a few for Specialist Audiologists at Band 6. When I search "Clinical Scientist" there seem to be loads of jobs for things like Medical Physics at Band 7- why is this not the case for Audiology?

    I feel like I've done endless reading on the whole thing, but am still not completely clear. Any help would be gratefully received!

    Hi! Massive congrats on your genomics offer!!

    I've applied for genomics for the past two years and haven't even received an interview

    I was wondering if you could share your experiences so that maybe I could get an idea of where I can improve.

    I'm a graduate of BSc Biomedical Science (received a 1st) and have done a genetics research project during my degree. I will be undertaking a genetics MSc soon. Hopefully this will help me to finally get an interview lol
    Hi, I hope you don't mind me jumping in on your post. I've applied for this programme for 3 years and it was only this year that I realised what you need in order to boost your chances at securing an interview. I work as a Genetic Technologist at the moment so was fortunate enough to be able to read current STPs previous applications who work in my lab. I now completely understand the structure of the application and what they are looking for (I don't mean that to sound cocky). I'd be happy to read what you submitted and give you some pointers if you'd like? I understand an application is very personal and it's hard for someone to let another person critique their heart and soul (trust me I had mine ripped to shreds) but if you wanted me to look I would be happy to. I wish I'd had someone do that for me the past two years I'd put forward an application.

    Hi, so I currently work as an audiologist (band 5) and have been accepted on to the STP this year, so hopefully this will help!

    Once you finish the STP you are technically qualified to work as a band 7, however there aren't many of these jobs that come up and therefore they are really competitive to get. A lot of the time the employer will want a decent amount of experience within the job too.These tend to involve more of a management role also, like being a deputy head of department for example. I would say you would have a better chance applying for a band 6 specialist audiologist role when you qualify.

    Saying that I know a couple of people who have qualified and gone into band 5 work as they have wanted a job and that was what was available.

    I'd hoped we would know by now if all the positions had gone so I would stop refreshing oriel every hour. Being a reserve is a tough waiting game.

    Did anyone here get an offer from being on the reserve list. I am first on reserve. I am just wondering if I should still have hope.. I know that people can hold on to offers upto 7 days from receiving them.. Is some one with clinical engineering holding on the offer and planning to decline.. Just being very very anxious.

    Thanks so much for this info, it is really helpful So basically you can apply to anything that asks for an "audiologist"- that definitely increases the pool of potential jobs!

    Well done for getting a place btw- I hope your training goes well.

    Any reserves had an offer or any offers upgraded yet? I don't know whether to still be hopeful they haven't done another round of offers yet, or accept the fact I haven't yet been offered when they did
