MMI Candidate Information

Welcome to our online interview candidate information page

Welcome and thank you for confirming attendance at our online interviews. This year, due to Covid19 restrictions, we will be unable to hold face-to-face interviews so interviews will take place online using Sonru, an online automated video interview system.

We are sorry that we will not be able to meet you in person this year but we wanted to give you as much information from one central source to help make this process as easy as possible.

Please ensure you read the document entitled: Guidance for Candidates: Online Interviews which you would have received via email and follow all of the instructions. As you will not be attending the Dental School for interview this year, below we have included videos containing information about the School and Queen’s University. We hope you and your family members will take the opportunity to look at what the University has to offer.
