Update to Selection process in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic
The health and wellbeing of our prospective students, current students and staff remains our top priority. As a result of the evolving situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our upcoming on-campus Selection Days for 2020 entry will be replaced with telephone interviews. The telephone interview is used to assess your suitability for the course and to ensure that as well as meeting the necessary academic and skills requirements, your values also match those of the NHS. Shortlisted applicants will receive more details from our School of Health Sciences Admission Team.
As part of the selection process, if your written application is successful you will be asked to attend a face-to-face interview held at City, University of London. The type of interview method we use is known as a multiple mini-interview (MMI). During the MMI, you will see four different interviewers on a one-to-one basis who will ask you two or three questions each from a structured interview. A service user may, or may not, accompany an interviewer and also ask you a question. Using this type of interview method means your performance will be evaluated by several assessors, which improves the objectivity and fairness of the selection process.
During this visit you’ll have the opportunity to meet with current staff and students to find out more about studying Speech and Language Therapy at City, and to tour our campus and facilities.
Qualifications and Residency Checks
At the start of the interview session you will be required to confirm your current academic qualifications and your eligibility to study in the UK. The Qualifications and Residency Check list details the documents you will need to bring on the selection day.
One of our current Speech and Language Therapy students, Sophie, has created a video blog offering advice on how to prepare for your interview. You can watch her video blog and read her other blogs.
