Have an interview at Edge Hill in a week, how should I prepare?
Hi, hope you're well!

Congratulations on your interview Here's a few things you can do to prepare:

-Research the course you're interviewing for. In your case, you'll want to look at the Paramedic Practice course page on our website. Consider what you'll study on the course, the balance between lessons and placements, etc.
-Research Edge Hill, too. If you're studying Paramedic Practice, you'll be at our St James' Manchester site. Why will the facilities there benefit you, and what are the positives about the location? Things like this will come in useful when expressing why you want to study with us.
-Think about examples of your past work/studies and how it relates to this course. It could be a direct link ("I worked at a hospital where I learned about the work paramedics do") or an indirect link ("I took part in voluntary work which taught me how to work in a team").
-In your interview, you may feel nervous, and that's okay! Our interviews are more about getting to know you, so we're not out to get you. Focus on bringing your personality and experience across.
-If you're feeling really nervous, focus on smaller actions to combat this. For instance, make eye contact with your interviewer and sit upright. You don't need to overcompensate for nerves by being overly confident or cocky.

Good luck!
