What is an assessment centre and how can I prepare for one?

Careers Network run assessment centre workshops which will help you; we also provide advice on preparing for assessment centres on our Careers on Canvas pages. You can get help and advice with your assessment centre if you book an appointment with a careers adviser. Current students can book appointments themselves using their my.bham username and password.

Graduates, alumni, and other course leavers are all eligible for assistance for up to two years after leaving the University. However, for technical reasons, they cannot directly book appointments through Careers Connect – if you fall into one of these categories, please contact us below.

If you have a confirmed assessment centre coming up, you may be eligible for a practice session with one of our careers advisers to help you prepare. This session would be a practice competency based interview which may make up part of an assessment centre. If you wish to apply for a practice session, please complete our practice interview request form.
