School of Health Professions interview days

Please make sure you download all of the non-academic requirements documents listed below.

Your interview day

1) Written test; The brief written test will be the first task of the day and will provide us with evidence of your ability to write clearly and coherently in English. We will also score you in relation to spelling, punctuation and grammar.

If you have a specific disability, please contact us at admissions@plymouth.ac.uk in advance of the day so that we can make ‘reasonable adjustments’ if required.

2) Group discussion; You will be asked to watch a short film clip from a documentary and then have a group discussion around the needs and perspectives of the featured service users.

3) Individual interview; This will be your opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the social work role and how you can utilise your experience and skills to contribute in a positive way to the profession. Usually, a panel of three people including academic staff, employers and service users/carers will ask you questions.

The decision to offer places is based on your performance in all the above alongside both your references and original application.

Please bring some form of photo identification with you, such as a passport or driving license. You will not be able to complete your interview without this.
