ive got an interview at uclan on 7th of april at 9.30am! applied to edge hill for april, had an interview, everything was great but didnt get in due to limited spaces! im on the reserve list for edge hill but not building my hopes! im stressing about uclan!!! any tips for an interview, i was asked to prepare a writen piece of work for an interview, pls help!!!
I had my interview at the UEA, they only asked me a few questions (probably because when I get nervous I dont stop talking) and so I answered most of the questions before they could ask them. My interview was about 35 mins in total. The interviewers gave no clues as to how you did so it was guess work and I was over the moon when they gave me an unconditional offer yippee!
My interview was quite easy I turned up and talked alot, but some other interviews sound really tough and nasty! Anyone applying good luck!
We can do this!!!!!!! Talk at interview about transferrable skills ie. initiative; teamwork; communication; adaptability/flexability; leadership; problem solving; interpersonal skills. within think of examples of each. eg. communication: talking; listening;resonding; writing; body language or teamwork: leadership; delegating; committment; problem solving. ODPs work at th critcal end of patient care. b4 during and after. b4 is about caring for th patients physiological and psychological wellbeing holistically caring for the patient. Acting as an advocate; empowerment and autonomyand ethics are very important ie informed consent is given in th assessment but if th patient was anxious and refused the proceedure even after consent you have to respect their wishes and advocate for their needs to other health professionals. patient care is th most important. working alongside multdisciplinary TEAM each with a very important part to play during surgery. wanting the best possible outcome for th patient. infection control. GOOD LUCK PEOPLE. MY INTERVIEW IS TUESDAY SO iL COME ON AND GIVE YOU FEEDBACK WHICH MIGHT HELP UXX KEEP TH FAITH!!!!
Thanks, I got an email with an ucas update..and I logged on and there it was! They said at interview they would tell us all pretty quickly, as they didn't want us accepting offers elsewhere. Fingers crossed for you, I reckon you'll be fine! xx
Aw don't be nervous! Saying that I was a wreck with nerves last week hehe.
Just wanted to post to anyone interested, if you have received all unsucessfuls for odp and your able to move away, leicester university is still taking applicants for their autumn intake, deadline 19 th june. Its not done thru ucas either, its an internal application. You order application pack from their website odp page. Hope this helps a few ppl. Xx
Hi everyone, Iv got mu uclan interview on 9th May. After readin all this i think iv got a lot of research to do. Readin that i may have to put a laryngoscope back together is quite daunting :s
i just assumed it would be about putting yourself across in the right way and proving your right for the course, showing your commitment and ambition for the job and the university itself.
Any info or insight would b great. thnx
The impression uclan gave is, they want ppl with no commitments. Someone who isn't likely to drop out on them and waste a place, because either they; cannot handle the workload for whatever reason, can't cope with the travelling to the parent hospital/university, don't want/can't relocate into accommodation and then turns up late to the hospital, can't cope financially...6k sounds alot a year but will soon go, also some ppl app can't cope with a younger mentor than themselves and being told wat to do in that it causes friction/bad atmosphere and someone who can't cope with the long hours on their feet and these can include late shifts and weekend work. Difficult if you have young children. I've been told its like a full time job with part time student study thrown in. They will tell you all this during a presentation before you get interviewed. I think its completely fair, its just the reality of the course and it's better to kno these things before you start. Gl with your interview! x
