PhD Clinical Psychology University of Edinburgh - Withdrawal of Offer 9May17

after last meeting 4May17 with PhD Supervisors
Letter by Email received today from Emily Gribbin, Head of Student Administration, School of Health in Social Science, The University of Edinburgh, Medical School (Doorway 6), Teviot Place, Edinburgh:

"Dear Chrys

We note from recent communications that you have rejected the supervision team that was identified in your offer for study on the PhD in Clinical Psychology (PRPHDCLIPC1F).

We are unable to find a viable alternative supervision team and have therefore withdrawn this offer to you for study on this programme.

Best wishes


My "thank you" Email to supervisors Prof Matthias Schwannauer and Dr Rosie Stenhouse, academic mentor Prof Andrew Gumley:

"Dear Matthias, Rosie and Andrew

I am writing to thank you respectively for agreeing to be my PhD Clinical Psychology supervisors and academic mentor.

The supervision didn't work out however I appreciate that you took the time to meet with me and give it a go.

Life isn't fair Matthias, you are correct.  

I am still hopeful of undertaking an action research PhD into Safe haven crisis Houses in the UK and abroad.  

Yours sincerely,
