    What did you do between graduating your degree and being accepted onto the doctorate? How long did it take? What are the most relevant jobs/volunteer work to gain experience? Is it worth doing a Masters degree?

    Obviously I have researched this through BPS and my University. I was just wondering what people's experiences are of the process, as I have heard that it can take up to eight years to be accepted onto the doctorate.

    You probably won't get much of a response on here as most people are undergrads/applicants.

    I only know of one Clinical Psych on here and he did a MSc and PhD before the D.Clin.Psych.

    Basically, the gold-dust graduate work you're looking for is the Assistant Psychologist post. Other relevant positions include HCA, IAPT work etc.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
