Preparing for your applicant interview
Due to the numbers of prospective students applying for each course, applicant interviews tend to be relatively brief. To give yourself the best chance of success at interview you should spend time preparing to present all of your achievements and experiences clearly and succinctly.
The applicant interview is designed to assess the strengths and motivations of prospective students. During the interview you may be asked to:
- Explain your reasons for choosing this course and how it fits with your career aspirations
- Discuss your strengths and weaknesses, and what you feel you would bring to the course you’ve applied for
- Outline any practical or work experience you might have completed, and what this has taught you · highlight outstanding academic achievements
- Chat about any issues or concerns you might have about the transition to University
You will also have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of your session.
If you have applied for accelerated entry into year 2 and year 3 of this programme, you will be considered for both at the one interview.
If you have applied for more than one course you may be invited to separate interviews.
