As well as meeting the academic entry requirements, some of our courses require you to attend a selection interview before you can be offered a place.

Subjects in the School of Health Sciences requiring a selection interview/visit:

  • Diagnostic Radiography
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Applied Sport and Exercise Science

All Applicants

It is only after you are offered and accept a place on one of our courses that the Disclosure checks required by the Health and Care Professions Council and our placement partners are carried out. For more information on these, please go to Disclosure Scotland.

Our Health Professions courses also require you to undergo a medical examination and have specific immunisations prior to course commencement. Information on these is provided prior to the start of the course.

Interviews will be held at:

Faculty of Health & Social Care
AB10 7QG

Year 1 Applicants

All year 1 applicants who have the potential to meet our academic entry criteria will be required to attend a selection visit.

Diagnostic Radiography, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy are holding interviews on

  • Wednesday 28 January 2015
  • Saturday 28 February 2015
  • Monday 9 March to Thursday 12 March 2015

Applied Sport and Exercise Science interviews are held from

  • Monday 9 March to Thursday 12 March 2015

You will be invited to attend a selection visit on one of these dates by our Admissions team. If you have any specific needs please contact as soon as possible so we can provide reasonable adjustments for you to participate fully.

You should wear smart clothes but be aware that you will be involved in some practical activity (nothing strenuous) so you should wear something comfortable to move around in. Please also bring a recent passport photograph of yourself.

You should allow 4-5 hours for the selection visit.

Selection Visit Guidance

You will be given a tour of our stunning facilities as well as the chance to meet with our academic team and current students. In addition you will take part in group exercises and an individual interview.

Parents also have the chance to find out more about university life, the support available and student finance

It is vital that you not only meet the academic requirements for your chosen course but that you demonstrate the right personal qualities - a caring nature, a commitment to the profession and a genuine interest in people. Without these personal attributes, you will find your chosen course very challenging.

Selection visits are therefore a two-way process. During the visit we will be finding out more about you as a person and whether you are ideally suited to your chosen career. This will also provide you with an opportunity to find out more about studying here at RGU.

Year 2 Applicants

Applied Sport and Exercise Science

If you have applied for year 2 entry to the BSc (Hons) Applied Sport and Exercise Science degree you will be invited to attend either a 1st year or 3rd year interview (depending on your qualifications) at this interview you will be considered for both 2nd year entry and 1st or 3rd year entry. This process is in place because we have no guaranteed spaces in the 2nd year of the course as this is entirely dependent on 1st year progression.

Year 3 Applicants

Applied Sport and Exercise Science

Applicants for year 3 who have the potential to meet the entry criteria will be invited to an interview on 11 or 18 February between 9am and 4.30pm.

Each individual will have a short interview with 2 members of our staff who will be assessing your suitability for the course with questions such as ‘Why have you applied to study the Applied Sport and Exercise Science at RGU?

This interview will also be video recorded for moderation purposes.

Please allow 15 minutes for your interview.
