VETERINARY INTERVIEW COURSE

Because First Impressions Count.

From tackling ethical dilemmas in the interview to testing manual dexterity, we bring to you a 12 station half-day intensive Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) preparation course run by experienced veterinary students from across the country.

Course Outline

Priced at £160, our course offers you the best value for your money. 

1.

HALF-DAY COURSE

Our courses run in the morning or afternoon over a range of weekends from November - February each application cycle. Courses are currently held over Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 10 staff help deliver each course. With our course, you will gain practice in meeting and talking to interviewers.

2.

12 MMI STATIONS

 On the day, you move through a 6-station that you will pass through twice.  Stations range from ethics to animal welfare to communication. Each station is quality controlled by vets and past interviewers. Stations are simulated by using individual breakout rooms for each station.

3.

10 MINUTE STATIONS

At each station, you will have

- 1 minute: to read the station blurb

- 6 minutes: to attempt the station

- 3 minutes: verbal and written feedback

If you have a confirmed interview, we can tailor the station to question themes asked by that university*. (NDAs mean we will never disclose exact questions)

4.

BESPOKE FEEDBACK

Our interviewers are all veterinary students or vets - you will not get this with any other course. They provide detailed verbal and physical feedback on all elements of your interview performance. All feedback is documented in your coursebook so you can refer to it again.

5.

BONUS LECTURE

At the start of the day, a vet or senior veterinary student talks to you about both the MMI and traditional panel interview. Our senior lecturer also discusses how to tackle the most difficult scenarios such as breaking bad news, animal welfare and what to do if a station goes pear-shaped.

6.

FREE MMI TOOLKIT

We provide all students with a hard copy of our unique 100 page workbook covering contents on non-verbal and verbal skills, our approach to difficult scenarios and an outline of common question themes that have appeared in veterinary school interviews over the last few years.
