Health and society assessments and interviews

Sports students

2024-2025 Entry

Meeting our applicants is one of the best parts of our jobs as admissions tutors in the School of Health and Society. During this academic year we are running both face to face and online interviews or assessments depending on the course for which you have applied and we're looking forward to meeting you, whether physically or virtually.

To find out what you need to do, we have put together some course specific guidance below as well as some useful FAQs to help you take the next steps in your application process. 

 

Top interview tips

1.

Look carefully through any material that’s sent to you before your interview so you know what to expect when you arrive.

2.

Read over your personal statement. It’s likely that we’ll ask you questions about this, so review what you have said and make sure you’re prepared to answer questions about it.

3.

We want to know what makes you tick. Tell us why you’re passionate about your subject and why you want to study at the University of Salford. Remember, we want to hear from you – so don’t swallow a thesaurus, put it in your own words.

Over the course of the day, there will be a series of activities and simulations that you will participate in as part of your interview. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions about the programme and find out a little more about what you would be prospectively studying with us.

Simulation involves immersing ourselves in the world of a simulated service user (and other people such as their family members, other professionals etc.). We will ask you to do this by using techniques such as role play, observation, watching video clips and visiting the simulation suite, all with the aim of informing a group discussion about what you have seen.

You may also see a microphone and camera test pop up the first time you open a session – please complete the set up as you may be asked to use your camera and microphone in your interview. When prompted, please ensure you allow Collaborate to access these or you may not be able to hear the presentation.

If you experience audio problems when you enter any of the sessions, you can also dial into the session using your mobile phone. To do this, please click on the menu button in the top left-hand corner and select 'use your phone for audio'. This will provide you with a unique phone number and pin that will allow you to dial into the session

If your technical problems still persist, please contact enquiries@salford.ac.uk quoting your UCAS ID number and date of birth.

I can't attend my interview/I can't complete my assessment on that day, what should I do?

If you are unable to attend your interview or complete your assessment and would like to reschedule, you will need to log in to your application portal. Within the portal, you can view your upcoming interview/ assessment and reschedule up to three weeks in advance of your original date. 

The link to your application portal will be included in a separate email we sent to you, but you can also access it here.

Please note, you will only be able to reschedule once. If you need to reschedule more than once or to a later date, you will need to contact the Enquiries team as soon as possible. We may be able to reschedule this for you, subject to UCAS deadlines.

The Enquiries team can be contacted at enquiries@salford.ac.uk, +44 (0)161 295 4545. Please ensure you have your UCAS ID number and date of birth to hand when contacting the team.

I have a disability and am concerned about how this will affect me.

If you have a disability and need support during your interview or assessment, please contact us by calling +44 (0)161 295 4545 or email enquiries@salford.ac.uk to discuss your needs. Please ensure you have your UCAS ID number and date of birth to hand when contacting the team.

Although the majority of our assessments and interviews are online you may like to find out further information on the accessibility of our campus. If so, please visit the accessibility section of our website. We have also worked closely with AccessAble to produce an assessment of our campus and facilities; you can find out more about access guides and routes across our campus on the AccessAble website.

What happens if I am unsuccessful?

The University has a range of Foundation Year programmes available and if your interview or assessment score falls below the standard that we are looking for then we will look to see if we can offer you a Foundation Year. The decision will be updated on UCAS.

I've been made an alternative offer for a course I did not apply for, why?

You may find that you have been selected for an alternative course following your application, or upon reviewing your interview/ assessment score. Our Health programmes are competitive courses to gain entry on to and on this occasion your application was assessed as more suitable for the alternate course offered. 

If you would like to find out more information about this alternative course, please contact enquiries@salford.ac.uk quoting your UCAS ID number and date of birth, and we can put you in touch with the course tutor.

Please also contact us if you do not wish to continue with your application.
