Answers to Common Questions

What's the difference between the 'Interview Day Course' & 'Personal Coaching & Mock InterviewCourse?'

Both courses achieve different goals. The Mock Interview consists of you sitting with a dentist/dental student being given one-to-one tailor made advice to your personal application. This course lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and is booked by appointment only. We begin this by taking your personal statement apart prior to your interview by pin-pointing and identifying various extracts within your personal statement which you may potentially be asked. We will then begin the course by giving you an intensive interview asking you a variety of questions along with critical feedback and tips on developing your technique. If your interview is Multi-Mini-Interview (MMI) based, then we will simulate the interview in the way that will be helpful towards tackling the MMI (e.g. We will time how long your question responses are to ensure they fit that MMI time scale) . Following the first Mock Interview, we also go through various exercises and talk about certain topics which are likely to come up in the interview. We finally wrap up the session with a second final Mock Interview and we are glad to say all our previous candidates have had big improvements in the second mock interview as compared to the first. We have achieved excellent feedback from the Mock Interview Sessions.

Our Interview Day Course is a very holistic & informative day hosted at various locations nationally. This is a full 9am-5pm day and we cover a whole array of topics which you will find beneficial ready for your interview day! Our talks are hosted from Current Dental Students and Dentists for example with specialist interests and also recently graduated dentists. This day is less tailor made to the Mock Interview and Personal Coaching but once again we have received excellent feedback from this course too because of the depth of detail and knowledge students had taken away from this day making them feel much more prepared for their dental interviews.

Many of our students have attended both courses and have found them both very useful in different ways resulting in helping them get their dental school offers!

What sort of things should I expect an interview course day?

Our interview course days incorporate various aspects of the dental admissions process. They are packed full of information for prospective dental students. We host a multitude of talks and lectures by various dental professionals, ex-interview panelists and the dental students. We will be discussing the variety of topics around in dentistry especially those which are commonly asked at dental interviews. Furthermore we will be practising model answers and also helping you develop your tailor-made bespoke answer. We will be having a dental sponsors such as Philips dental care and GlaxoSmithKline giving out advice about their role in providing essential dental care and also will be handing out some freebies too!
