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 to programmes in teacher education, Nursing, Oral Health Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine, as well as graduate and mature applicants to Medicine, may be invited to an interview as part of the selection process. For Veterinary Medicine this will take the form of multiple-mini interviews.
We are currently considering changes to selection for Medicine, which may include the introduction of interviews for all applicants. Further information will be made available online if changes are made.
We do not interview for entry to any other programmes.
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 the summer before you submit your UCAS application, or apply for an exemption code from the UCAT consortium.
Portfolios for art or design
Applicants to Art, Design and Fine Art programmes will be asked to submit a digital mini-portfolio. We will assess your mini-portfolio as part of the selection process.
