Return to Nursing/Midwifery Interviews

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

What should you expect?   

  • The interview will last around 30-40 minutes and will be with a member of the academic subject staff from the continued professional development health team. 
  • 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 not be asked to present certificates at your interview. Admissions will ask you for these after the interview if you are offered a place.
