HK University Interview Coaching

HK University Interview Coaching

Not all university courses require interviews, traditionally Medicine, Dentistry, Law, and competitive Business programmes will invite their candidates for interviews to assess their suitability for a course. Your interview performance will directly impact your chance of securing an offer.

Law / Business programmes

The majority of Law programmes in HK, including double degrees such as the BBA(Law) at HKU, include interviews as part of their admissions process. Meanwhile, competitive Business programmes, such as the BBA (IBGM) programme at HKU and the Global Business (GBUS) programme at UST, also invite students to interviews.

While each programme’s interview format is different, it usually comes down to either a group interview or an individual panel interview. In most group interviews, your group will be given a topic to discuss and to come up with a proposal or conclusion. Individual panel interviews usually center on your personal statement, past experiences, as well as recent news or popular topics in the field you are applying for.

At CANA, our consultants conduct mock interviews and topic-focused discussions with students, aiming to build up their analytical skills, subject knowledge, as well as ability to communicate effectively.

Medicine/ Dentistry / Other Healthcare related courses

HKU Medicine uses the MMI format, while CUHK Medicine uses traditional panel interviews. Regardless of the format, the interviews are designed to explore the student’s personal qualities and attributes which are vital to becoming a good doctor in the future.

You can expect to be asked about your interest in Medicine (or your chosen field), your knowledge of healthcare as well as questions on Ethics, Current issues, Teamwork and Communication. Ethical scenarios and patient communication (medicine) are common MMI stations.

Most students may find the idea of an interview daunting. If you are nervous, interview coaching and mock interviews go a long way to prepare you for the type of questions you will be asked; and ultimately increase your chance of securing an offer.

Each mock session will last 45minutes to 1 hour which include feedback. At the end of the mock interview, the interviewer will discuss the student’s performance, highlighting areas for improvement.


I knew I was in safe hands after my very first lesson with my consultant. The reading material provided much inspiration for my personal statement, and I was also pushed to navigate through difficult legal scenarios. Never did I imagine that I could feel so passionately about a subject, and would therefore like to thank “Cana” very, very much.

Cana provides valuable advice on college selection which helps my daughter to develop an appropriate college list and find a best fit college. We have a better understanding of the U.S. college admission processes. Cana also provides good guidance in selecting essay topics and approaches which allow Esther to articulate who she is and what matters to her in a genuine and impressive way.

CANA's consultant team consists of graduates and students from Oxbridge, I think that the team is very reliable, trustworthy and supportive. The consultants organised the tutorial timetable nicely, helping me to avoid procrastination and make me feel well prepared before the interview. Apart from technical support, CANA consultants also gave me invaluable encouragement during the application process.

The tutor, being a graduate of Law from Cambridge, is very familiar with both legal concepts and the Oxbridge interview style. He is also one of the most articulate, critical and intelligent people I have ever met. During the sessions, he pushed and challenged me with the toughest and most difficult interview scenarios and questions. In many cases, I didn't know how to answer them, but he taught me that the most important focus was the reasoning process, not the answer itself. The training proved to be extremely applicable during my real interview.

The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.
