    Hello everyone, so I am got an invitation for an interview next Saturday for Coventry University on the Dietetics Course. I a currently attending a foundation course in the most reputable Foundation College in Athens in which I have as modules: Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics and Computer Science.
    It's my most favorite uni and since I will be travelling from Greece to Coventry I would really like to prepare a bit for the interview.

    Note: I also attented one year of an Institute of vocational knowledge in Greece, in ''Nutrition & Dietetics'',as well as some volunteer work in creating diets after proper measurements.Therefore I am not a complete stranger to the subjet.

    Has anyone had an interview for Dietetics in Coventry, or in general?What type of questions should I be prepared to answer?


    Thank you all in advance..
    Very exciting!
    I can't give you the specific questions but the questions are normally along the lines of

    Why do you want to study Dietetics?
    Why do you want to study Dietetics at Coventry?
    They may ask why you want to study in the UK
    They may ask about the role of the dietician
    They may ask what you want to do when you graduate
    They may test some of your communication skills etc
    They may ask what your favourite subjects are in school

    PRACTICE ALL THIS WITH YOUR FAMILY/FRIENDS/ IN A MIRROR.
    answer the questions with them.

    LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES

    Yep. I got one in Northumbria university in Newcastle for Human Nutrition course and at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen for the Nutrition course.
    Still waiting for an offer for Glasgow Caledonian and Cardiff Metropolitan for Nutrition and Dietetics courses. Coventry is my top choice though and If I'm offered a place I'll definitely pick Cov Uni.

    Just wondering why Coventry is your main choice?

    I am most likely firming it!

    That's cuz my first choice Notts rejected me and Cov is the only other Uni I applied for this course.

    The Uni was lovely <33 x

    Its pretty close to a lot of cities including London. I liked the atmosphere of the city and the facilities where breathtaking. Im interested in Dietetics course mostly too. So hopefully Cov will offer me a chance

    I will have to check the prices. I don't mind the off-suite, but if there is only a small difference I'll probably book an en-suite room.
    How about you ?
