Primary Education BA (Hons)

Primary EducationThe interview procedure for the Primary Education degree programme aims to give us an overview of your academic potential for an Honours degree and your potential to become an excellent teacher.  We want to see the best of you and want to make you feel as relaxed as possible so that you are able to show us your true potential.

Prior to your interview we will have read your UCAS form but this is all we know about you.  It is up to you to make your personal statement come alive during your time with us.

During the interview process we are keen to see/hear:

  • Reference to recent and relevant experience in schools/early years settings.
  • Reference to other experiences with children and relevant skills you may have learnt from part time work, gap years, etc.
  • Your ability to reflect on these experiences and what you have learned from them.
  • A lively and engaging personality.
  • Smart appearance.
  • Confident and articulate communication, using standard English.

Take the time to prepare thoroughly by looking at both the criteria you will be assessed against and the schedule of the day:
