Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs)
We run Multiple Mini Interviews for most of our interviewing programmes. The exception to this is Healthcare Science BSc.
A usual MMI consists of between five and eight interview questions, which take around five minutes each. The interviewers sit at ‘stations’ and the interviewees move between them. Each ‘station’ may involve answering a question, completing a practical task, or participating in a role play, for example, dealing with a challenging situation. Each question is marked separately and independently.
We believe that MMIs give fairer and more accurate results than a traditional interview for selecting medicine and healthcare students. This approach helps us better assess qualities that make a good healthcare professional, such as empathy and respect, rather than which applicant is strongest at answering standard interview questions. Also, if you feel one question doesn’t go very well, you can move on to the next one knowing a different interviewer will be assessing you.
Remote Multiple Mini Interviews (RMMIs)
For the 2022 admissions cycle, we will be inviting our applicants to partake in remote MMIs (RMMIs) so that we can operate our interview schedule whilst staying in line with the latest Government's guidelines regarding the outbreak of Covid-19. RMMIs provide us with the same level of assessment of our applicants as MMIs, but allows us to use a non-interactive format and lets you complete your assessment from the comfort of your own home.
For the 2021 admissions cycle, we successfully interviewed 3000+ applicants using our RMMI process, so we are confident that this year we will be able to offer you a smooth and stress-free interview process.
