Yes the cost is the same for one, and covers reagents etc needed for the project it a bit harsh on people who live much further from the uni compared to others but it does the job!
Thanks so much! Yea true hopefully that won’t the be case for me but can’t control it can you! Do you also know how holidays work? Do you get a certain amount of allowance to book off each year or does everyone get the same weeks off? Many thanks

Holidays work like a normal job, you'll get the number of days off that your hospital provides, and you can take them whenever you want (except during the uni blocks I suppose!)

That’s fantastic thank you! And does the salary increase each year? Just by about a £1000 or so or is it fixed?

No worries! I believe it stays the same, if you have a look at the NHS agenda for change salary scheme it shows that you get a pay increase once you've worked in the NHS for 3 years (it's based on time in employment there)

So if you worked in another NHS trust for 3 years, would you start on £32,525 (the band 6 pay for being in the NHS 3-4 years?)

I think it's unlikely as the course is funded by the national school rather than the NHS itself, but I'm not 100% sure, you could email the NSHCS to ask

Hi! I'm a 1st year STP trainee in immunology at Southampton, let me know if anyone has any questions I can help with
Hey Katrisha,

Do you still have the responses you typed out for the 250 word questions in your application? I've downloaded the general person spec, but am struggling to translate it all into words. For reference I'm applying for genomics not immunology so don't want to view your responses, but ask you how you went about writing them.

My main tip would be to use examples for absolutely everything, think about the question and try to give a point for each thing it asks. I didn't go into tonnes of detail for each example, but tried to make sure I covered everything - if you leave something unanswered, you won't get through the shortlisting
They're looking for passion, professionalism, and an understanding of what the job will be like and how important patients are

I hope that helps

I'm curious now too! Will ask my boss tomorrow - they've put up the agenda for change yearly rates as it does increase a little each year for inflation, and as the NSHCS website does say that it's the band 6 pay, we should at least get the slight increase each year but I don't actually know if that's true...

Hi, are the amplitude tests just made up of the numerical and logical practice? Also, how similar are the tests to the practice ones?

Hi Amusat, I replied to someone a few posts ago on a similar topic so have a look at that the main tip is to make sure you've fully answered every aspect of the question, and give examples where possible

Hi! I was just wondering if each individual aptitude test question is under a timer as some practise ones have only allowed 75 secs per question, and some have just allowed 20 minutes to complete them all! Many thanks!

Out of curiosity how are people answering 'commitment/enjoyment/interest in scientific practice'? Are people answering this from a laboratory context? I haven't had much lab experience apart from bits and bobs in my Undergrad so bit unsure how to tackle this!!

Think I'm gonna mention the software I used and data analysis stuff in undergrad + vaguely used emg / spike train analysis and then mention the lab work I will be doing for masters research, will be mostly future based but *if* got to interview, by that point I should have started collecting and analysing dti and fmri data. Might mention shadowing a radiologist but that was about 5 years ago so might be milking it a bit too much 🤔

Submitted my application this morning after checking it for the ten millionth time. 😱

For interest in science I discussed my career progression so far so why I left my first job for my current one and then how the tech in my second one was new so I had to implement the new tech in the lab and troubleshooting/improving efficiency that was necessary as a result.

I think I'm probably a fair bit older than you guys though, I'm late 20s.

Has anyone got any tips for the nhs values one? I know the values of course and how I’ve shown them when volunteering but that was 6 years ago and struggling on how to word how we would show it in our work as a clinical scientist as my specialism (genomics/cancer genomics) isn’t very patient face to face at all!!
Thanks
