Selection Days for Professional Health Courses and Social Work

If you are invited to attend a selection day you can usually expect a welcome to the university and your chosen course, a tour of the campus, some Admissions Tests and then a group interview. For some courses you will also have an individual interview with members of the course team, placement representatives and service users. If you have been invited to attend a selection day your email invitation will include Applicant Guidelines which will give you a schedule of the day and an idea of what you can expect. 

If you have been selected to attend a selection day we will send you an invitation by email (a copy of this email will also be available in 'Manage my Application'). We will usually include Applicant Guidelines and a reference request form as well as any course specific information you may need in advance. This email and the attachements will tell you everything you need to know about the day so please make sure you read everything carefully. To respond to the invitation, and notify us of any additional support needs you may require please log into 'Manage my Application' on the Applicant Area and click the relevant link. 

A high volume of applications and demand for places means places on selection days fill up quickly. Unfortunately we are not always able to accommodate requests for alternative dates due to the competitive nature of these courses. We therefore recommend that you attend the selection day date offered to you in the first instance. If you are unable to attend please respond to your interview invitation on the Applicant Area as quickly as possible. If an alternative date is available we will send you an invitation by email. 

Please note that if you do not respond to your interview invitation and fail to attend the date offered, we will assume you are no longer interested in pursuing your application to the University of Suffolk and your application will be withdrawn.

If you live overseas we are may be able to offer a Skype or telephone interview. Please contact Admissions directly on 01473 338348 to discuss this further. 

Admissions Tests

Universities are increasingly using Numeracy and Literacy Admissions Tests to help with selection for competitive courses. The University of Suffolk receives a high number of applications to professional Health courses and admissions tests are either used as part of the selection process or as a diagnostic tool . If the tests are used as part of the selection process and confirmation that you will be selected for the next stage of the interview process this will be detailed in the Applicant Guidelines
