Message from the Admissions Team

Congratulations on being invited to interview for our Occupational Therapy programmes. On this page, we have provided information regarding the tasks we would like you to complete in advance. It is vital that you are prepared and can talk about these tasks when you meet us.

During the interview day we will:

  • Help you to give the best account of your skills, experience and character. This enables us to decide if you will thrive in the University of Plymouth's culture.
  • Explain more about the University, the School of Health Professions and your programme.
  • Enable you to understand as much as you can about the way we work with our students and what it means to become a University of Plymouth student occupational therapist, to develop into a healthcare professional graduate.

The University of Plymouth is required to select applicants using a ‘values based’ approach for pre-registration health professions programmes. This is to ensure we recruit the right students with the right values, to ensure the delivery of excellent patient and service user care. All aspects of the interview are aligned with the core values of the NHS constitution. These NHS values are:

  • Working together for patients
  • Respect and dignity
  • Commitment to quality of care
  • Compassion
  • Improving lives
  • Everyone counts

Please ensure you read the interview pre-work below carefully as this provides information on what you need to do before attending your interview and what you need to bring with you on the day.

We look forward to meeting you at your interview and if you should need any help or assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
