If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to attend a Selection Day.
A Selection Day provides you with the opportunity to meet school staff and current students and ensure that you have a sound understanding of the programme and its demands.
You can find an example of the sort of programme you can expect if you attend a Selection Day below. Please note that sessions are subject to change.
What to expect
On your Selection Day, you will be asked to complete two short tests in literacy and numeracy. The tests take 20 minutes each. Calculators are permitted for the numeracy test and will be provided on the day. Sample tests can be found on the test applicant pages.
In addition, you will participate in a group discussion and have the chance to talk informally to current staff and students. Finally, the day will include a presentation relating to your chosen course.
Please note that we are unable to provide you with lunch on the day. However, there is a café and canteen on site where you will be able to purchase food and drinks throughout the day. The campus is also very centrally located and you will be able to quickly reach the various outlets in the vicinity. Light refreshments will be served in the afternoon.
If you have any special requirements, please let us know in advance and we will make arrangements as appropriate. These may include arrangements in relation to mobility, sensory impairments or the need for more time to complete your tests. You can inform us when you register to attend a Selection Day.
