Event description



You have until Thursday 21 December 2017 to book your interview time. Bookings will close after this date. We would advise you to book your interview as soon as possible to avoid missing out on your preferred date/time.

You are not permitted to book an interview for another applicant or two for yourself. Where two interview times have been booked by the same person or by a person who is not on our list of successful applicants, the ticket will be cancelled.

You will receive an automatic email confirmation of your booking (please check your junk/clutter folder if you do not receive it).

Structure of your Interview

You will be attending a multiple mini interview which involves ten interview stations, each lasting five minutes. There will be two questions or tasks per station covering areas or domains such as the course in Cardiff, ethics, your understanding of a career in dentistry, the NHS, working in teams, self-directed learning, numeracy, motivation, empathy, resilience and communication.

Your interview time will also include a welcome presentation outlining the way the interviews will run, an opportunity to talk to current dental students and of course the interview itself.

Travelling and Arrival

The interviews will take place at:

University Dental Hospital/School of Dentistry. Registration will take place in the Dental Foyer which will be signposted from the Main Entrance. Telephone: 029 2074 6917 / 2468

You should aim to arrive 30 minutes before the start time on your ticket to allow time for registration. Your interview time forms part of a rotation around the ten stations and will therefore start exactly on time. We will not be able to delay the rotation if you are late.

Please take the time to plan your journey. University Dental Hospital/School of Dentistry is not in the centre of Cardiff so you will need to think carefully about how to get there. Please visit the link for directions.

What you need to bring with you

You will need to bring photographic identification with you e.g. passport, driving licence (including provisional). We will be unable to allow you to continue with the interview if you do not have this identification with you. (We will accept photographic identification you used for the UKCAT test).

What you should wear to the interview

Please dress in smart, comfortable clothing which is appropriate for an interview.

What you need to do beforehand

You must complete the online applicant self-declaration form before your interview via this link https://fitnesstopractise.cardiff.ac.uk/applicant/. You must complete this form by Thursday 21 December 2017.

We will expect that you will have read the General Dental Council (GDC) document 'Student Professionalism and Fitness to Practice' available on the GDC website prior to attending your interview.

GDC Student Professionalism and Fitness to Practise

You may also wish to read the NHS Constitution and its core values along with dental or ethical topics that have arisen in the news.

If you need to change your booking

We recommend that you only change your interview time as a last resort. Before you will be permitted to choose a different time, you will need to cancel your first booking and re-register. (BE CAREFUL! Unfortunately we cannot guarantee there will be any other times available once you cancel). After cancelling you will then be able to use your original link to book a different time.

If you change your mind

If you decide for any reason that you wish to withdraw your application and cancel your interview, you will need to cancel your interview through the original email link to Eventbrite.
