I couldn’t find anything for prospective dental students for Portsmouth 2019... I’m Jordan and am applying for both dental hygiene and dental hygiene and therapy. Thought this could be useful for when interviews etc start or any questions anyone has! 😄

Multiple Mini Interview, so different 1 to 1 stations you rotate around with other interviewees
Cant remember the stations as it was a few years ago but one discussing a GDC principle, one with a manual dexterity exercise etc, so much nicer and relaxed than a standard interview

I had a interview for dental hygiene and therapy for Portsmouth on the 27. It was a panel interview. They asked questions about the city itself (was surprised I was prepared for questions about teeth) they only asked what do you know about the media for dentistry! The rest were non dentist related questions! GOOD LUCK
