BVM&S Interview information and dates

Interview Arrangements for 2023 Entry

Interviews for 2023 entry will take place in person.

The aim of the BVM&S Interview is to select candidates with the best combination of academic ability and aptitude for veterinary medical training.

The Interview will start with a welcome talk and an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a Multiple Mini Interview (MMI).

Interviews hosted at our Easter Bush Campus will include a campus tour.

Multiple Mini Interview Format

The MMI will consist of seven 10 minute stations.

Five of these stations will have an interviewer:

  • Work Experience
  • Career Exploration and Awareness of being a Professional
  • Awareness of Animal Welfare
  • Data Interpretation
  • Moral/Ethical Dilemma

Each candidate will be individually interviewed at these stations. 

The remaining two stations are unstaffed:

  • Practical Task
  • Numeracy Task

Assessment, Decisions & Feedback

Assessment

Each interviewer assesses candidates independently. The evaluations from all stations are considered and offers made on the overall assessment of each candidate in comparison with the performance of other candidates.

Decisions

We aim to make decisions on offers by 31 March 2023. 

Feedback

The School is willing to offer feedback to candidates on the outcome of their Assessment Day. Please note however, that whilst candidates will be aware of their own performance, they will have no insight into the performance of the others against whom they are competing.
