I haven't been able to find a forum for the applications to the Scientist Training Programme in Wales this year - seeing the threads of previous years, I thought I'd make one in case anyone else out there might find it useful.

I'm applying to Medical Physics this year, I'm so worried given how few places there are for STP positions in Wales... I'm hoping my application is good enough to at least get to the interview stage.

How do you check how many places are available for the specialism? The Welsh site seems a lot less well curated than the STP England one. I've applied for Health Informatics btw!

Hello, an actual other Welsh applicant, haha I've attached a table that shows the number of places for each specialism - it's not on a website as far as I'm aware, it was sent to me by Christine Love, a contact for queries regarding the Welsh STP process. They're still new to running their own system, I think that's why there's so little information out there!

I've applied for Developmental and Clinical Biochemistry Proper anxious to hear back about the interviews. I'm doubtful I will have got through but I've got no idea the number of applicants this year.

There's a couple places for it at least - I'm sure you're in with a chance! I'd like to know the number of applicants too... there's no information for anything like that anywhere, unlike with the English system. Maybe it's better for our confidence not to know though, haha...

I don't think anyone does, sadly. I think the interviews themselves were at the end of April last year maybe, so going by that we surely won't be kept waiting too long - here's hoping not anyway!

The interviews start on the 15th so I’m sure we’ll know in the next two weeks!

If the interviews are that early, I expect we'll probably hear very soon... I hope so, I want the disappointment out of the way early.

Hey

I'm also applying for cancer genomics along with genomics. Didn't get an interview for the English ones so don't know what the chances are with this but thought it's worth a try at least!

Good luck to you both The English and Welsh systems seem to be very different, so I'm sure you're both in with a great chance.

hey, I have applied as well for the health informatics program in Wales. Not received any feedback information yet.
WayBeyondBlue_ it might be that they are applying at 3:1 ratio as for the English positions? Thanks for posting that document, I know I have just one chance to make it , not too optimistic about it but we will see how it goes, good luck everyone

I’m sorry to hear you didn’t get an interview Green! I find it a bit reassuring that we get to find out either way though. I’m so nervous!
