Undergraduate study - 2021 entry

Interviews, tests and portfolios

Interviews and admissions tests do not normally form part of our admissions process, but there are some exceptions for specific programmes.

Applicants for degrees in teacher education, nursing, oral health sciences, medicine, and veterinary medicine may be invited to an interview as part of the selection process. For medicine and veterinary medicine this will take the form of multiple-mini interviews.

We do not interview for entry to any other degrees.

The Reid School of Music does not interview or hold auditions as part of its selection process. If we require further performance background, we will ask you to provide this.

UCAT for entry to medicine

If you are applying to study medicine, you must sit the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) in 2020 before you submit your UCAS application, or apply for an exemption code from the UCAT consortium.
