Message from Associate Head of School

Congratulations on being invited to interview for our nursing and midwifery programmes. On this page, we have provided information regarding the 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.
  • Explain more about the University, the School of Nursing and Midwifery and your programme.
  • Enable you to understand as much as you can about the way we work with our students and what it means to become a University of Plymouth student nurse or midwife, to develop into a healthcare professional graduate.

Please ensure you read the interview pre-work below carefully as this provides information on what you need to do before attending your interview and what you need to 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,

Kevin Hambridge
Associate Head of School for Marketing and Adult Nursing Lecturer
School of Nursing and Midwifery

Please note: If you have applied for more than one programme within the School of Nursing and Midwifery, you will only need to attend one academic interview. During this interview, you will be assessed to see if you are a suitable candidate for all programmes you have applied for.
