    NoAngel I was wondering if I could get some advice from you...Now that I didnt get the job my options are - do my masters(which i got an unconditional offer ) or do the top up modules to get registered which I've also got place for. Wanted to keep all my options open. What do u think is the best thing for me to do,or would give me alot more skills and help with the job front. I cant decide whats the best options as they both have their pluses.

    well I got an email. But the good news is that I am getting a better post job in the same lab.
    They said i did well in the lab and they are pleased to offer this job. However, I have to sort out my work visa, which is the worst part.
    Good luck for you!!

    Shamknly- sorry for the delay, have been away all weekend.

    I'm worndering if my job works slightly differently, I have to do a masters to get my job. However, which of your options takes longest? And are either of the routes funded or do you need to find fees/ living costs? Also, is there a better chance of a job offer after the masters compared with the top up modules?

    Hi NoAngel- Well I had already applied for a masters in the summer before the job interview but it had nothing to do with the job. Both routes-masters and top up modules are self funded but I've chosen the masters as its a far better qualification. I think with the masters I'll be able to apply to a broader spectrum of jobs. The plus side to the top up would be that I'll get HPC registered.
    However I am still waiting to hear back from a couple of jobs so -fingers crossed I'll hear back.

    Anyway I'm off to Ibiza on thurs so cant wait, will be nice to get a break before I start uni again! lol

    I'd go for the masters in that case. Seems like it'll be more useful in the long term- good luck with the jobs!! So excited, yet terrified about starting mine in a couple of weeks. Have a fab time in Ibiza and be ready to come back to all the hard work!!

    Well kindly quote them. I dont recall anyone saying they are applying for the application process coming up this November to me directly. Its funny how everyone ignores you when a response is needed but STICK THEIR BIG NOSE IN when its not needed. You must be very smart indeedy.

    GraduateSK- last year the vacancies were only visible once the application process began- so that;s the 2nd Nov this year. The majority went on straight away but a few more followed for a couple of months, so it's worth holding on before sending your application. Well done for getting the work experiece, I'm sure it'll look good on all your applications.

    rafer- don't see why not. Check the full details on the website, some vacancies require a more specific degree, but depends which speciality you'd like to go into

    Amyloov - from what I have heard, the difficult bit is actually getting them to give you an interview in the first place. Have you got any work experience? What is your background? I heard that if you dont have a 2.1 or higher they throw out your application almost immediately :o:

    I'm currently doing work experience in a medical physics department, I'm doing my 3rd year project in a medical physics department, i've done a supplementary module on medical physics at uni, and i've just finished a nuffield project on optics, which can be applied to medical physics, even though its not directly related... and I hope I'm getting 2.1 or a first... If not I'd be screwed for a job anyway
