This section will provide you with all the information you need if you are invited for an interview for a health or social work course at the University of Plymouth.

DBS (Disclosure Barring Service)

For the majority of the courses successful applicants will need to undergo DBS (Police) and health screenings to make sure they are fit and able to work in a position of public trust. 

In order to carry out these screenings, we need to check a number of documents. You will be given details of how to complete the check online when your offer is issued.

What you need to prepare 

You may need to make some preparations prior to attending your interview, refer to the relevant course link below for further information. 

For all interviews we advise you to think about the reasons why you want to study the course you have applied for. 

Current students also found it useful to make sure they had knowledge of some of the topical issues in the news.
