Undergraduate study - 2018 entry

Interviews, tests and portfolios

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

Applicants to programmes in teacher education (including Community 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 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 further performance background is required, applicants will be requested to provide this.

UKCAT for entry to medicine

If you are applying to study Medicine, you must sit the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) in the summer before you submit your UCAS application, or apply for an exemption code from the UKCAT consortium.


Portfolios for art or design

Applicants to Art, Design and Fine Art programmes will be asked to submit a digital mini portfolio.

Assessment of the mini-portfolio will form part of the selection process. Applicants applying to enter Year 2 of our programmes, who pass the first stage of selection, will be invited to bring a full portfolio to an applicant day.
