On the day of the interview, please can you ensure you bring with you a photographic identity document e.g. a passport, driving licence. You may also wish to bring a calculator for the numeracy test, and a pen, pencil and rubber.
There is always high demand for the limited number of places on our course. Therefore, if you request an alternative date, unfortunately there is no guarantee that we will be able to offer you one, as the subsequent dates may already be fully booked. We do understand that it is not always possible for applicants to attend, so we will do our best to accommodate you if you do need another date, but cannot guarantee that one will be available. So to avoid disappointment, please do endeavour to attend the date that you have been offered.
You can request an alternative date through the Applicant Portal – Your login instructions have been sent to you separately.

The interview will include a numeracy and literacy test, a group task, a face to face interview, talk about the Podiatry degree at UEL, and a tour of the University facilities.
For the numeracy and literacy tests you will be given 20 minutes for each test. You will not be able to use a dictionary but you may wish to use a calculator which you will need to bring with you. You cannot use your mobile phone as a calculator. The tests will be completed and supervised under 'exam' conditions.
Also during the afternoon we will be assessing your communication skills, your knowledge of the profession and your ability to contribute to group discussions. In line with the NHS values based recruitment strategy we will be looking for the behaviours and attributes that are essential in a healthcare professional.

Give examples of how you reflect these values. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-nhs-constitution-for-england/the-nhs-constitution-for-england
