    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone can give me an outline of how the day goes for Adult Nursing interviews.
    Do we need to sit a Math and English test?
    Has anyone rearranged their interview and got another date?
    Any tips please?

    Heyy, I've been looking for the same info! All the other universities seem to have a really clear outline of the interview format and Manchester just says 'individual interview' so I think that maybe means a normal panel-style interview?

    I had a look at old posts and I think they used to do the maths and english tests but there's no mention of it now, so maybe they've changed it? I don't think they would be doing them without warning you, at least that's what I'm hoping! Is yours next week?

    In terms of your personal statement they like to know about your experience of caring for people and transferable skills like, for instance, if you've had a part-time job in retail you've been able to develop the ability to work as part of a team. Have a look at the 6 Cs of nursing and give examples of how you've demonstrated these values.
    My interview day started with a presentation about studying nursing at Manchester then we showed our ID and documents as required (they tell you what you need with plenty of notice). There were current nursing students around to talk to us about their experiences and answer any questions all day which was super helpful and helped pass the time (the wait can be long if you're one of the last to be seen!) and there was free lunch too!
    Good luck guys, if you have any more questions I'll happily try my best to answer them!

    Thankyou! I made sure to include those in my personal statement. What questions do they ask at the interview? And how are you liking the course so far? Thanks!

    You're very welcome! I study Mental Health Nursing but the questions will be similar for the Adult and Child fields too. From what I remember at the UoM interview they asked why I chose nursing and why this particular field, what qualities do I have that would make me a good nurse (lovely opportunity to talk about the core values of nursing!), and they gave me a scenario. I was a bit worried about the scenario question but I think it's mostly an opportunity for you to show that you're able to be considerate and think on your feet as well as acknowledge that you want to study nursing to learn how exactly to deal with the sort of situation being asked about.
    It's early days yet but I'm so glad I chose to study this course here at UoM! I was concerned about not being deserving of my place at uni but with time it'll get easier to accept that the uni believes in you because they've seen potential that definitely can be reached. The nursing students I've met and the staff are super friendly and so supportive, and honestly it is very possible to have a social life outside of studying!

    Good luck! Can't believe this time last year I was checking UCAS Track multiple times a day, the waiting really is nerve-wracking but should be worth it!

    Hi Sophie, could you please let me know if the maths and english tests are still being used part of the interview process for adult nursing as i remember last year we had an admission staff come in saying the tests have been removed? I would like to know if this is still the case as this would be very helpful. Thank you

    It's no bother! Good luck for your interview at Salford! Honestly I can't really remember the scenario, though I think the idea of it is to get you to think on your feet as you will have to as a practicing nurse in the future. I'd say take your time and be honest if you don't know the exact medical ins and outs of what you would do in that situation
