BEd Primary interviews

Message from Programme Leader

Congratulations on being invited to interview for one of our BEd Primary specialisms. On this page we have provided information regarding the format of the day and tasks we would like you to complete in advance. It is vital that you are prepared and are able to talk about these tasks when you meet us. 

During the interview day, we will:

  • help you to give the best account of your skills, experience and character. This enables us to decide if you will thrive in the University of Plymouth's culture
  • enable you to understand as much as you can about the way we work with our students and what it means to become a graduate with the University of Plymouth.

Please ensure you read the interview pre-work above carefully as this provides information on articles/videos you should look at when preparing for your interview and any specialism specific materials you should bring with you on the day.

I look forward to meeting you at your interview and if you should need any help or assistance please do contact us. 

Best wishes,

Tom Cowan
