Thank you for your application to study in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education. We are pleased to invite you to attend a selection test day to progress your application further.

Here you’ll find more information about the day, how to prepare and what to bring with you. Please read all of the information carefully, including the information in PDF documents.

Documents you must bring with you

You must bring one form of photographic identification such as a passport or photo drivers licence and a copy of the invitation email to the test day with you.

Numeracy and literacy tests

Midwives need to be both numerate and literate to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). On the test day you’ll complete a numeracy test and write an essay. To find out more and to help you prepare, please see the following:

How to find us

The interview and selection day will take place at our Kingston Hill campus. Kingston University has three main campuses – the Kingston Hill campus is about a mile from Kingston town centre (around 15 minutes by bus). For maps and directions see:

Note: If you’re travelling by car and parking within the campus, you’ll need to display a temporary parking permit on your windscreen. Temporary permits are available from the reception desk in the Stable Block on arrival, and are valid for parking in Car Park D.


After your test

The admissions tutors will mark your numeracy test and your essay, usually within five working days. If you have successfully passed the tests then you will receive an invitation to come to interview in due course. You’ll be advised formally via UCAS if you are not successful in the tests. Please look at your UCAS TRACK for the decision. UCAS will normally email you to inform you that a decision has been made. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications we receive we are unable to give feedback on the test scores if you are unsuccessful.

Please be sure to keep your personal details updated at UCAS, so that you receive all the information from the University and the Faculty.

We wish you the best of luck with the tests and look forward to seeing you on the test day.
