Course application forms

I have found it very useful to read other people's application forms when completing my own. I'm also aware that some people don't have this 'luxury'. Therefore, once I had completed my application form for the 2003 intake, I posted it here for anyone who might want to read it. Since then, a few other people have kindly sent me their forms to share via this site.

CAUTION  Please bear in mind that these forms are just to give you some ideas. Your form should be a reflection of your experiences, abilities and thinking. Course selectors don't just want to read the same old catchphrases - with the standard of applicants so high, it takes more than that to catch their eye.

There are a total of 8 forms available, from years 2002 to 2004. You can download them as a ZIP file, containing all 8 forms, either in PDF or Microsoft Word (DOC) format. Please note that the form contents are identical, i.e. there is no point in downloading both ZIP files.

ABOUT ZIP FILES - the files below are not themselves PDF or DOC files, they are ZIP files which contain PDFs or DOCs. If you use Windows XP, it will treat a ZIP file as a compressed folder, and you need no other software. If using an older version of Windows, you will need WinZip or 7-Zip. Mac users will probably need StuffIt Expander. Note that these are very commonly used programs, and will probably already be installed on your machine, especially if you use a library or university PC.

Many thanks to Yvonne Waft, Russel Ayling, Jo Nicholson, Caroline Haigh and two anonymous contributors for sharing the fruits of their labours with the rest of us! If you wouldn't mind sharing your form, please get in touch. If you would like to edit it (e.g. removing addresses, referees etc.), that's fine. That's what I've done, but left in all the useful bits. I am happy to post it anonymously if you like.

Course interview questions

You can download the list of questions by topic as a Word 97 [79k], zipped Word 97 [22k] or PDF [154k] file to print out, if you have trouble printing out from the course questions page.

'Further information' example

For more information, please see the 'futher info' page. You can download a RTF file [18k] (or zipped RTF file [6k]) of an example section from a job application form. This will probably print out more accurately than the HTML version.

Income tax claim example letter

If you are a BPS member working working as a psychologist, you can claim income tax relief on your membership fees. This can be applied retrospectively for 3 years. All you need to do is write to your employer's Inland Revenue office with a few details.

I have provided an example letter which I used to successfully (re)claim this money. You can download it in RTF [6k] or zipped RTF [3k] format.
