Hi friends!

My name is Maryam and I am a final year MSc Physician Associate student at Queen Mary University of London. I have been an ambassador of the university for 4 years and I also did my undergraduate degree at QM (BSc Biochemistry).

Applications for the 2022 entry open in May 2021, so with only 3 months to go, it’s a good idea to start thinking about your application and personal statement.

I’ll be more than happy to help out where I can with your journeys so just reply to this thread and we can get started!

Hello!

I received my interview offer around late October (for an interview in November) and then my offer in December.

Hello!

Yes most definitely! One of my close friends on the PA course has a degree in Psychology! Certain topics (for eg. Anatomy) can be a little tricky when you don’t have the background, but it’s definitely doable!

Hello!

The questions are quite similar to a medical school interview. I can’t say sample questions but I would advise that you think about all the skills needed of a Physician Associate, and think about how you’ve demonstrated that or how you will become that. Know exactly why you want to be a Physician Associate and what exactly their role is. Also maybe brush up on some of the regulation news.

Good luck!
Maryam

Hi!

No worries. I’m not sure exactly but I heard back mid December for the January start.

Hi! I am thinking of applying here for the PA course. However i wanted to know how the interviews will be held because im sure it is different due to the pandemic. Is it an online meeting style interview where you speak to the panel? Or is it like other unis where you record your answers and upload them? I assume the style is MMI aswell, right? Also how many questions are there? Is there a set number? Do they ask questions concerning your personal statement or is it other types of questions similar to med interviews?

Hi sis! How was the panel interview like? Did you find it stressful and what tips do you have to prepare for it? Also just wanted to ask if you applied to other universities too as they usually start sept and to hear back from qm late Oct would mean you’d have to decline the other universities? How did you choose what to do

Hi Maryam,
Thanks for your reply!! Also one last thing, what’s the cohort size and if there is a waiting list when is the latest we’d know by? I know someone who was placed on the waiting list this year but the Uni never got back to them about a place becoming available and only got back to them one month after the course started just to say they have no places left and to try again

Hi Maryam,

I’m a newly qualified nurse interested in taking up PA course in 2022. I am finding quite difficult in defining the difference between the responsibilities of a doctor and PA. I was just wondering if you can shed a light in this question?

Thank tou

Hi Maryam,

I was wondering what the application process was like? How long would the personal statement need to be? Does QMUL require us to answer specific questions within our personal statements? If so where can we find this information?

Thank you.
