    Just received this:

    Thank you for your recent interest in studying Engineering at Cardiff University. Having reviewed your application form, I am pleased to invite you to a Visit Day at the University.

    The Visit Day has been developed to provide both the applicant and their guest with a thorough introduction to the City, the University, the School, and some of our students. Importantly, applicants will also have a 20 minute interview with a member of academic staff to determine the suitability of the course to the applicant, and vice versa.
    I didn't realise there would be an interview o.O
    Sounds compulsory?

    Hi!
    I received it too. I sent them a mail to ask if it is compulsory and they said no.
    When are you going? I'm going on 6th December.
    I don't know what to expect from the interview. Do you know anything? What kind of questions will we be asked?

    The 7th Not a clue what will come up! If its not compulsory I'd hope it wouldn't affect anything; I thought it'd show good attitude to turn up.

    Hola fellow Diff applicants!

    I've applied to Cardiff for Biomedical Science and Medical Pharmacology and then Biomedical Science at UWIC. I sent my application off on Monday and had an offer from UWIC on Tuesday for CC with Welsh BAC which I'm really happy with as I wanted it as my insurance anyway!


    Any other biomedics here? xx

    I'm so envious!! I'm still waiting for my college to send my application. They've already added my reference and approved it all so why can't they just send it?! :mad:
