    Hi, I got an art interview there next week!

    Has anyone got an interview there as well? Or had one before?

    I never had an interview before so I'm very nervous about it. If anyone had any information it would be much appreciated!!

    Thanks

    I've applied a couple of weeks ago for the course, do you need to send a CD portfolio off before interview?

    What sort of questions were asked at interview? Did you get a tour beforehand or did you do it straight away? Were there any group questions?

    When i got to my interview we were split into two groups. One group put their work out in one room, and the other group in a different room. We were then taken for a tour whilst they looked through the portfolios- there were two interviewers per room.
    When you got back from the your they then called you in individually to talk through your work. Questions depend on what sort of work you have produced, but general things like 'Why have you done this?' 'What artists have you taken influence from?' 'Where can you see your work heading in the future?' 'What appealed top you about this course?'
    Etc : )

    Ahhh that sounds really easy as long as there's no trick questions or come across as really cold in interview. I've gotta make sure I do a good CD if they hopefully ask for one!

    It said this on mine too. We went on a tour for about 20 minutes and then were split into two groups, four people in each and went in individually for about 15/20 minute interviews each. I was third in so i had to wait about 40/50 minutes.
    Not sure what the format of the interviews are for other courses though (:
