The number 511 goes to UEA main campus). Parking is not available at the Edith Cavell Building or on the main UEA campus Monday-Friday.
If your interview takes place on a Saturday, please park on campus in our main car park (P1 on our campus map). The postcode for UEA is NR4 7TJ. Costessey Park and Ride does not run on a Saturday.
We would recommend that you allow plenty of time to get to your interview. If, however, you are running late or have been delayed for any reason, please contact the Admissions Office on 01603 591515 OR 01603 593115 to let us know.
Please report to the Reception desk in the main foyer of the Edith Cavell Building or the main foyer of the Queens Building, depending on where your interview is going to be. If you are not sure where your interview is please check your invitation or contact the admissions team.
You will be invited to a morning or afternoon interview session, which will last a maximum of three and a half hours. For morning interviews, you will need to attend from 9.00am and for afternoon interviews you will need to attend from 12.00noon.
The selection process will consist of a numeracy and literacy test, subject talk and interview. The documents you have been requested to bring with you to interview will be checked. The numeracy and literacy test includes numeracy questions and a short written literacy excercise. The numeracy and literacy test results do not form part of the selection process but are a requirement of Health Education England and help the University to plan the level of support we provide to our cohorts.
The actual interview will last approximately 35 minutes and it will be a Multiple Mini Interview format. There will be four stations which applicants will circulate, spending approximately 7 minutes at each station. Applicants for BSc Children's Nursing will have an additional interview with local school children.
There will be students helping with the interview process. It should be possible to speak with a current student, although we are not able to guarantee that they will be from the course you are being interviewed for.
Interviews are held during the University term time so tours of the School are not always possible but please ask on the day. Unfortunately we are not able to offer a tour of the nearby Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.
Should you wish to reschedule your interview date please contact the Admissions Team as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01603 593115. We will do our best to offer an alternative date however for some courses this may not be possible.
If you are no longer able to attend your interview, we strongly recommend that you contact us as soon as possible to discuss rearranging. It will be presumed that applicants who do not attend their interview no longer wish to be considered and their application will be updated accordingly at UCAS.
If you wish to withdraw your application, it is extremely important that you let the Admissions Service know and update your UCAS Track as soon as possible. Please email email@example.com with your full name, UCAS Personal ID Number and the reason for your withdrawal.
We aim to provide you with an update on your application within six weeks of your interview. There are three possible outcomes; we make you an offer, your application is held in a gathered field for later consideration or your application is unsuccessful.
Due to the large number of applications received, we are unfortunately not able to provide feedback immediately. If you are unsuccessful, we will indicate via UCAS the reason. If you request more detailed feedback it will need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will indicate when we are able to provide the feedback. This is usually after the interviews have been completed i.e. May.
