    Sorry to repeat my question, but it is very important to me.

    Any INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS here?
    Anyone successful?

    Have some questions for you, guys.
    Hi, I am an international applicant too for medical physics and I'd be happy to help out if I can!

    Just emailed them and they said they cannot release any information regarding your position on the reserve list, and keep an eye on Oriel basically
    Hey, I was on the reserve list for Genomics but I just got an email this morning offering me an interview. There is hope!

    just a quick question. At the end of the training everyone qualifies as a clinical scientists but in respect to your department what is your actual role. ie if you qualify as a cardiac scientist do you become a cardiac physiologist? Might sound bit daft this question.

    You wouldn't immediately be given a title as such I don't think, rather you'd apply for certain jobs, so if you applied for and got a cardiac physiologist job you would be a cardiac physiologist then.

    Hey - I got an email saying that sub preferences are open from Monday - does anyone know if this is first come first served or anything? I'm away without wifi on monday so just a little worried!
    Also, what does 'general science' in the interview mean?! Will it be related to healthcare or anything from GCSE basically?

    Sub prefs aren't first come first served, don't worry. Locations are given out based on how well you do at interview. So the person who gets top interview score gets their first choice, next best score gets their first choice unless it's already claimed in which case they get their second choice, etc. So also you can't improve your chances by ranking locations with more places as higher on your list. It is all down to interview score.

    Hey, no you can fill it in any time it's just an indication they use after the interviews. I think the better you do the more likely you are to get a top choice, but doesn't make anything definite.

    I'm shortlisted reserve for microbiology and have just accepted an associate scientist position somewhere else. It's highly unlikely, but it would certainly be awkward if I was offered an interview now!

    Best of luck to those shortlisted this year. Who knows I may apply again in future

    Hey al!, first time posting in on the student room despite lurking here for the past 3 years, does anyone have a clue what we can expect at the interview stage. All I know is that we have 4 stations of 10 minutes each.

    My advice to anyone on the reserve list would be if you have spare time then PREPARE for an interview regardless. I was shortlist reserve last year for Audiology and had a call at around 6pm the day before the interviews to invite me to interview the next day! I hadn't done any interview prep as I was preparing for my final uni exams at the same time and there were a few questions that I couldn't answer properly that a bit of prep would have been useful for. Luckily managed to get an interview directly this year.

    I believe that for med phys there are different specialisms within that e.g. radiotherapy, and that 'undefined' means you don't know which specialism that location is offering yet. I'm sure people applying for med phys can offer more details

    You just gave me some hope, haha...but this "last moment" game is driving me crazy, and if something similar happens to me, I'd have to literally spend a fortune on train tickets

    Anyway, did they actually call you, or you got an email?

    I think undefined means that they offer all the specialisms?

    Congrats about the job! Is it something clinical or pure research? Going back I should have done biomedical degree at least I would still have options other than STP to get into NHS.

    Btw. anyone else got an interview in microbiology? If I get the job I would like to get placement in London but I guess this one will be quite popular.. :/

    Hi all!

    Does anyone know when they usually give the results of the interviews? (i applied for medical physics) I guess it will be after the 25th of April since we can choose the subpreference until this date but if anyone has more details would be great to share them!
