    Try not to let stress get the better of you. As I have mentioned on this thread before, lots of people received invitations to interview in late February/March.

    There's a Travelodge on the corner of Union Street and Bridge Street, and the Number 3 bus runs direct to the hospital from Bridge Street. The railway station is at the bottom end of that road as well.

    Thanks, it really helps a bit... Anyway, at least I already have some offers Does anyone know whether EU students get invitations before UK students, or it is rather random?

    When you think about it, you guys submitted your applications about 4 months ago now. At tops you have 5 weeks to wait. You've done the hard part

    Do you need to take proper ID with you to the interview? I know in the email it says that you should bring either 'a passport sized colour photograph of yourself OR
    other photographic proof such as a passport or a driving licence that we can copy'. It's just every other interview asks you to bring a passport and I appear to have lost mine...

    Thanks, this is great news. I was really panicking when I realised my passport was missing. I thought I wasn't gonna be able to do the interview. I've got spare photos from my Glasgow interview so I'll just use one of them. I should probably get a provisional and stop taking my passport out for ID...

    Wouldn't that have been of more use before your interview?
