Don't read too much into the interviews. Am fairly certain they are random. However judging my best friends experience last year they do seem to like interviewing the graduates at roughly the same time ( which was about the middle of January last year )hiya!
I have an interview for aberdeen. Im gonna start preparing for it soon however im a bit confused because of the changes to the course. I was planning on just reading through the prospectus to find out more about the course at aberdeen, is there any point in doing that if the course is changing? Can someone tell me what the changes are gonna be? Are they major changes or just some little ones?
There is really not that much self study to be honest. It is mainly to fill the gaps in your knowledge if something that was in the learning objectives has been missed out. At the start of the year you are given a green book for all subjects that has summaries of the content of lectures and also learning objectives for them. There are tutorials and problem solving sessions where you are given a set of questions and have to prepare answers then you go over these either with one tutor in the case of tutorials or with problem solving sessions there are 5 or six wandering about the room for the duration. However it is half the year at any time in these sessions.hi keen, thanks for the reply!
So the teaching style will still be a mixture of lextures, seminars and self directed study? Do you know when the changes will take place? Last ques lol - Is there any plans to build new buildings for the medcine course at the uni (i mean will there be enough space for anatomy at the current building)?
Yeh all the changes you mentioned will make the course so much better!
p.s. What are teh interviews like at aberdeen?
