That's absolutely brilliant! Congratulations!! Which university is it for? Just waiting for my reference to be approved, so hopefully my application will be sent off soon as possible :) :thumbup:


Having attended previous interviews for Paramedicine, these are the tips I can pass on.....

- Be yourself. Be relaxed. Be calm, but be decisive. They are looking for you to be an honest, caring and understanding person.
- Know what you've applied for. Research the role - not so much in depth - but in breadth. Know a little about everything - giving you plenty opportunities for relaxed discussion.
- Understand that listening is as important as speaking - create a caring relaxed relationship with your interviewer.
- Write down situations that have built you up as a person, so you can remember them well on interview day (e.g, situations where you have had to work under pressure, possibly take charge/lead a team, work as a team, how you have dealt with stress, where you have shown care/compassion to others). Going through these pre-interview will let you answer questions more confidently.

Few tips - hope they help you out :) :thumbup: Wishing you all the best!!!!
