    Hey guys,

    I've applied. I interview tomorrow I've been told last year it was a tour then a round robin style discussion where you sit in a semi-circle and get asked questions starting at one end of the semi-circle then the other. Then a individual interview.

    I will let you know if they stick to the same structure this year after tomorrow x
    Good luck for tommorrow

    Thanks. Its at 10.25am and they said to expect to be there 3-3.5hrs.

    I've read up on NHS and Health News. Looked at the NHS 6 principles. Looked at Huddersfield Uni in general and there Stats for Nursing. Generally panicked a little bit and now i'm just looking at the expectations of the role of a Adult Nurse. x

    Good luck to you too. I've just been told the interview section is like blind dating. Different little booths that you go to for each section with a time limit so be prepared for that.

    I'm sure we will be fine. I will update you tomorrow but a top tip i was given by my careers adviser who interviews for Hallam and knows interviews at Hudd is to ask questions of the tour cos your participation is fed back to the interviews by the tour guides who are 3rd year students. x

    Hi,

    People can give you generic answers about the process but specific interview details aren't allowed to be discussed on TSR because of the unfair advantage it gives some people over others, if they know what to expect of an interview.

    Lots of interview advice can be found in other threads here, and some universities provide their own preparation materials and/or information on their websites or in emails to you about what to expect. There are also lots of very helpful TSR members here and we are all happy to help too. Good luck!

    AmyMaria1990 nafisa230 I am not sure whether you saw my original post or have ignored it... Specific interview details are not permitted to be discussed anywhere on TSR (Including DMs) as it gives an unfair advantage. Please show respect for all applicants and remove your posts immediately.

    Unfortunately I have also had to report this to the moderators.

    @PaediatricStN I removed the first post after I saw your comment and edited my second one, however nothing I posted in the second post after editing is anything that isn't freely available on the Uni of Huddersfield website or in the FAQ pack they send when you have a interview. I only broadly mentioned there interview style when I said it was blind dating style.

    I didn't give specific questions just said that it was all the normal stuff that you are told to expect and to read up on News because people always forget that and it's well known they ask you about that in interviews.

    I don't understand what the issue was with my 2nd post after i edited. It didn't give any unfair advantage as all it said was what is advised anyway and general information.

    I don't think you have anyone an advantage or disadvantage

    Hi guys, lets try and keep this friendly please

    As users and advisors, none of us have the time (or inclination) to check the interview advice on the websites of every uni. We have also not interviewed at every university in the current cohort, so do not know what exactly goes on in each interview. Users therefore are subjective in advising you to delete any potentially sensitive information. From what I can see, nothing really serious was disclosed, but this is a reminder to keep chat generalised. I hope you can appreciate that if in doubt, we need to delete certain messages or details to maintain the integrity of admissions procedures.

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't say I was unfriendly at all ☺ Firm but civil in my second post, perhaps. I do just feel quite strongly about giving all applicants equal opportunities for their interviews.

    Well for future reference it came across very unfriendly verging on rude so you may want to consider that and maybe try to be a little bit less harsh next time, we're all just trying to help each other out here. I wasn't trying to give anyone unfair advantage, I'm apply myself this year so wouldn't want anyone having unfair advantages, I had clearly edited my post after your first comment to ensure everything that was included was stuff that was available other places or general knowledge about what you get at a nursing interview and I even stated that at the bottom of my post. Yet you accused us of ignoring your comment, of trying to basically cheat and proceeded to report us.
    I agree it was just your experience and available information. She was definetly rude and now by putting a smiley emoji putting across it is fine. 😡

    Well I sincerely apologise for any offence caused - that genuinely wasn't my motive. Though that doesn't make it acceptable to be rude back to me. I did accuse you of ignoring the post but only because no response was made. I wasn't to know that you had edited your original post because I unfortunately don't have time to monitor these things.

    I appreciate the fact you are just trying to help one another but this does still need to be fair to those who are not members of TSR.

    Plenty of interview advice is available here without discussing specific details, and I as a qualified nurse with experience of giving careers advice and sessions, as well as others who frequent this forum, are more than happy to give our expert input when asked.

    Hope that clears things up. Have a great day
