Preparing for a university interview

Some of our schools interview applicants, either formally or informally. Our interviews usually run through the recruitment cycle.

Firstly, if you've been invited to an interview - congratulations! You've already shown in your application that you're a promising applicant with the potential to meet our entry requirements. 

An interview is a chance for the department to get to know you better, and learn more about:

  • your abilities, experience and knowledge.
  • your interest in the course.
  • you as a person - your interests, motivations and ambitions.

Your interview is also a fantastic opportunity for you to find out more about the course and department and decide whether it's the right fit for you.

We have provided course level information in the sections below.  Simply select your course to find out more about what to expect and what you may need to prepare for your interview.
