I applied to the NHS scientist training programme but didn't get an interview. There doesn't seem to be many places, even outside of the UK that you can do it, other than Cardiff! Have you applied to others?

No I haven't, yeah there aren't too many places that offer it. What was your undergrad in?

I did Psychology. Ive worked as a mental health support worker since October, but I've limited Genetics experience apart from a few modules in Uni, and zero lab experience which might be an issue. What about you? Do you know anything about what job prospects are like afterwards? I'm a bit worried that there aren't many genetic counselling positions available

I'm coming from the other side, I did genetics. I know positions are really limited and you'd probably have to travel to get a job, unless you're from London. But I think you can also work outside of the UK with the qualification. BTW you would also qualify for the Cardiff programme as you have +6months experience.

Yeah I was considering it, but its part time, distance learning for three years. I might apply to it next year but at the moment I'm not that keen on it. If I dont get into glasgow I might do a genetics masters, and then apply through the STP next year

You wouldn't apply to Glasgow again? Yeah I'm currently considering what my plan B is if I don't get in to Glasgow.

Hi, I've also applied to the MSc at Glasgow. Didn't get an interview for the NHS STP either, so not sure what that means for my chances for the MSc. Also trying to work out what to do if I don't get in, I want to get more caring experience but I'm coming from a science background so not sure what kind of jobs would be good to apply for...

I think the STP is maybe more competitive because you get paid? So I wouldn’t let that worry you. You don’t need any qualification to to a care job

Hi everyone! I've been offered an interview (over Skype as I'm international). Anyone else?

Did you get an email?
Yes I did. I got it this morning. Not sure if everyone is supposed to do a Skype interview or if it's because I live far away. I picked a Skype interview slot as well.

They give everyone a Skype interview. I currently live in Glasgow and mine is also over Skype - I think it's so no one has an advantage!
