Nursing interview at Robert Gordon University

Does anyone know how long RGU takes after a nursing interview?
Had mine yesterday and I’m super anxious. Hoping it’s not a long wait.

Hi @Shan1109 well done on getting through your interview. Have you applied for adult or MH?
Can I ask was your interview in person or online? I’ve been invited to do an online interview next week. I can’t find anything or any threads about people who have had their interviews online though - it all seems to have been in person / group interviews.
I’ve applied for the BSc(hons) Adult.

Best of luck & fingers crossed for you! Sure everything went fine.

Hi! x

I applied for dual child and adult nursing.
My interview was online through the SAMMI system.

I struggled finding any threads too so I hope this helps you!


I’d say the most important thing you could do is practise talking to yourself in the camera on your laptop. The questions are pre recorded and so you find yourself talking to yourself which can be daunting! (I found myself looking down way too much- don’t be scared to face the camera)
They do have 4 minutes for every question with a slider moving as the time passes.
Don’t worry about using all the time up, rather make sure your answers make a good impact (I definitely repeated myself way too much because I was stressed about the time)
and make it clear why you want to study adult nursing in particular.

There is a break inbetween questions- take a sip of water. Helped me with the nerves.

Oh and be prepared for slightly different situation questions.
As long as you know the values of nursing you’ll be fine! :smile:

Ps- remember to sell yourself in every answer! I found that they asked a lot of “explain why you would react/answer that way”

You’ll do great!! Good luck and tell me how it goes!

Hi @Shan1109, sounds like you did great and were well prepared.
Thanks for the pointers, that’s so helpful as like you I haven’t been able to find anything about the online interview despite there being plenty online about the group type interview.
I’ll definitely have a practice of trying to speak into the camera beforehand to get used to it and I’m going to try and prepare as best as possible over the next few days.
I really hope that you don’t have too long to wait to find out the outcome. Do you think they’ll also invite you to a face to face / group interview following this? Or do you think you’ll just be given the outcome?
Yes, same - keep me posted on how it goes with you as well. Everything crossed for you, sure it’s gone well.

Hey @Lisasuth1 how did you get on with your interview? I did mine on 29th January. Not sure how it went tbh but did my best. No feedback as to when we’ll hear back. I think I’ll email admissions to see if they know.

Don't worry about anything yet as they will notify you when they have decided who they are taking in as student nurses. Either way you'll get a response from them.


You only just done your interview so it's still early for a response, just remember that they might be interviewing thousands of potential students for nursing courses at Robert Gordon university.
