Test day: Nursing/Registered Nurse

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 tests and how to prepare and what to bring with you. If we make you an offer, we very much hope that you’ll accept Kingston as your first choice and join us for the next academic year.

Please read all of the information carefully, including the information in PDF documents.

Numeracy and literacy tests

Nurses need to be both numerate and literate to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). During the interview and selection day you’ll complete a numeracy test and a literacy test. You must pass these tests in order to proceed to the interview stage. 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 day

The admissions tutors will mark your numeracy and literacy tests, usually within 5 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.
