Selection Day

As part of the selection process, you are being 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 chance to meet with current staff and students to find out more about what it’s like to study at City. There may also be an opportunity for you to take a tour of our campus and facilities.

Top tips for the Selection Day

It's worth noting that a lot of the communication we do is non-verbal. For example this could be the way we stand or sit, move our limbs, nod our head, provide eye-contact. On the Selection Day, non-verbal displays are most likely to be picked up on in group exercises. It is also important to think about the signals given by others; these are also cues to pick up on.

Also remember to:

  • Listen carefully to all instructions
  • Double-check if you are uncertain about what you are required to do - don't be afraid to ask questions
  • Be alert and aware throughout the Selection Day - concentrate, stay calm but focused
  • Do not make assumptions about the way to respond - if you try to guess what the "answers" might be, or what the assessor is looking for, you may be wrong - it is always best to be honest and be yourself!
  • Work quickly but accurately through the care scenarios - don't spend too long on any one question
  • Come prepared; read all the information you have been sent carefully before your Selection Day.

We would like to thank you once again for your interest in the School of Health Sciences and look forward to meeting you soon. If you have any questions regarding this process or your application please email the School of Health Sciences Admissions team.
