Paramedic Science Interviews

Once you have applied for one of our Paramedic Science courses* and if you have been shortlisted, you will be invited for an interview. 

Interviews will be On-Campus for those wishing to start in September 2023.

What should you expect?  

  • At the start of the interview, you must show a form of picture ID as proof of who the interviewer is talking to. Acceptable documents include a passport, driving license, college ID badge etc. (please note we do not accept copies).
  • You will undertake a small group-based exercise with other applicants to assess your ability to work collaboratively in teams.
  • You will also attend a panel interview which will be an opportunity for us to learn a little more about you. This will last 15 minutes and you will be asked 3 questions.
  • One of these questions is the following to enable you to prepare for the interview: “What is the role of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and who/what does the organisation seek to protect?”  
  • You will not be asked to present certificates at your interview. Admissions will ask you for these after the interview if you are offered a place.
Top Tips
  • Do you know enough about the course you have applied for? Research information about the course, the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and visit our open days where you can come and speak to our staff and students
  • Ensure you have read all the guidance that has been sent to you, have you been requested to bring any additional information with you? (ID etc.)
  • Practice your response to the questions that have been sent to you in advance of your interview.
