Preparing for Health SciencesMini mock interviews for students applying for Health Science degrees:
We offer mini mock interviews as part of our Health application and interview support. This offers a fantastic opportunity for those to have a practice run with a mock interview before the real deal. This opportunity is available for students currently studying level 3 qualifications between November and January. Please email us for more information.
If you are unable to attend a mini mock interview, or are applying outside of education, you may wish to review this video from Dr Steph Jong from the school of Health Studies. Steph will talk you through some tips and tricks to help you prepare for an interview.
History Short CourseOur fantastic History Short Course supports those with a passion for the subject with gaining insight into how History is taught at higher education. The course itself is part-time and held in the evenings through Spring term – keep an eye out for applications later in the year!
Throughout the course, you will learn more about lectures and seminars, practice academic writing and writing with sources as well as how to use the library (to name a few).
Study AbroadStudying abroad is an amazing way to enhance your studies and bring an international dimension to your degree. Students have the option to complete an academic placement at one of our 200 partners universities across the world for a semester, year or for a short term course during an academic break.
We understand mature students may have commitments to navigate so they can proceed with this option. With our diverse range of partner destinations and placement durations, every student can find a suitable programme.
The Study Abroad team are here to help you through each step of the journey. They can help advise students about their options, most suitable destinations, and administrative processes.
There is funding available through Student Finance loans and bursaries, the UK Government’s Turing Scheme and UEA to support students to have this experience. Find out more information on the Finances and Budgeting page.
