Selection and Interview

We shortlist applicants against agreed criteria, using the information you submit on your UCAS form only. Your academic background and personal statement help us to assess your interest in the subject, so it is important that you are specific in your personal statement about the course you are applying for and why.

Interviews generally take place between November and April and if your application is successful, we will send you an email inviting you to attend an interview. 

Most interviews are held virtually using Zoom, however for MPharm Pharmacy, Clinical Sciences (BSc & Foundation) and BSc Paramedic Science, interviews are being held in person on campus. For online interviews we will send you an email inviting you to attend with a link to the zoom interview. Once you receive your invitation, you need to accept the invite by following the instructions in the email. If you are unable to attend, you must contact us to request an alternative date (contact details will be in the email). Please note that occasionally there may not be any additional dates available.

UCAS has a useful guide and tips on how to prepare for your interview. 

The government has outlined new funding for nursing, midwifery and other Allied Health Professions courses. From September 2020, students at English universities will receive up to £8,000, with a minimum of £5,000 a year in funding.
