"For me, spanish psychology residency program has been a very hard experience, but it has made me grow a lot at the level of staff. It has helped me to value small things such as five minutes of "extra" free time, walks in the sun, snacks, and the company of my family, among others," says Nuria. 

Nuria, who graduated with scholarship Alumni, says that in the first two attempts to take the exam, she always had the positive mentality of achieving it, although she also admits to having been afraid, uncertain and sad about coming close the second time. "Thanks to the reassurance I received, the confidence that the following year could be mine, was what made me bounce back and achieve the goal this year," he says.

"I am infinitely grateful to my family and my boyfriend. From day one they have been totally committed to me and have been there unconditionally, not letting me give up and repeating that this was made for me," Nuria emphasizes. She also encourages the next Pires not to give up: "Take advantage of the opportunity, take care of yourself physically and emotionally, make the most of the day off and go for it!

More than 4,000 people have applied for one of the 231 places. Begoña Urien, professor at School of Education and Psychology, recognizes that "to prepare for a 'hard' civil service examination like the spanish psychology residency program , you need energy (desire), persistence and perseverance in the goal (not losing sight of the goal throughout the process) and resistance to frustration during the study process and when you do not get it right the first time, which is normal". 

He also emphasizes that the Psychology students at School have access to academic staff spanish psychology residency program from both the Clinic and the Navarra Health Service, which helps them to better understand what is expected of a clinical psychologist and what subject of work they will be doing. The proximity to the Clinic, both at academic staff and during the practicum, provides clues as to what needs to be done to obtain good results at spanish psychology residency program ".
