Your Midwifery interview will take place online through Microsoft Teams. As your interview is online, we highly recommend visiting us at an Open Day, Taster Day or Applicant Day to get to know the University.
On your interview day, you'll be given an allocated time slot. Please ensure you arrive five minutes prior to the start time. Your interview will last approximately 50 minutes.
Your interview is in the form of a Multiple Mini Interview, which is made up of six different stations. The interview panel will be made up of lecturing staff and midwives from our practice partner NHS Trusts, and may include service users.
Each station is one-to-one with an interviewer who’ll either ask you a question or a present you with a scenario. You'll have 4-5 minutes to answer before you move on to the next station. This all takes place online via Teams, and you’ll only need to access one link for all the interviews.
Each interview timeslot will have four candidates, but there is no group interview question. Each question or scenario is given to you individually.
During your interview, we’ll ask you to show valid photo ID to verify who you are.
We won’t ask to see qualifications at this stage. We’ll be interested in your knowledge of the role of a midwife and your values. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and find out more about ARU.
Please note: your interview may be recorded.
