Thanks for the response, I totally agree with you over the impending uncertainties, that's one reason I couldn't make my mind. There are both aspects of the uncertainty I suppose. Brexit will reduce the favourable benefit to Non-UK, EU applicants and will equate them with other international applicants, which indeed allows others better opportunities to fill the income gap thus created in the UK economy. However, the other side is the Covid pandemic repercussions. It'll mitigate the favourable chances of international students. But, as the government is inclined to increase the influx of international students to 30% till 2030, they'll be liberating international educational schemes in days to come.
I am aware that DClinPsy is very competitive and localities will surely have an advantage both financially and otherwise. But should that be a reason to refrain to even try and deviate from approaching? Have you come across any international student to make it DClinPsy? As far as my circumstances are concerned, I'll be able to finance myself till MSc. Conversion without any burden of the loan but I would require a starting job (research assistant, support worker, etc.,) after graduation to make my way through. I have no such financial responsibilities other than sustaining myself.
