    Hey I've also received an interview at Swansea on the 24th of Jan! YAY! I'm just so shocked at receiving an invite that it's taken me a while to get over it and actually start preparing for it! How is everyone's prep going?

    If by 'this year' you mean applying in Sept 2012 for 2013 entry, then it's ok, you've got plenty of time. You can sit it in March or Sept.

    Has anyone got an interview on the 31st?

    I'm wondering do I set off at 6am (4.5hr drive) or stay overnight? Anyone know what the hotels in Swansea are like ie which ones are close and cheap?

    I think that there are more invites to come out, they seem to be sending them day by day.

    I think if I were travelling that distance I may think about hotels mate, I'd be tired after driving/training it all that way! I'm sure there'd be a travellodge or something similar near the city centre, and the uni is about a 15 to 20minute walk from the centre.

    I've got friends in uni at swansea so I could ask about if its any help?! I'm in uni at cardiff so think I'm just gonna catch the train up!

    There is a travelodge a little further into the city on princess way i think. Its literally a 5 min cab ride from the uni. I would avoid the premier inn though in salubrious place, as its located on the the main street for nightlife in swansea, so depending on which day your interview is.. you might not get much sleep!

    or depending on your style, this might be the perfect place for pre-interview preparation!

    Cheers for the advice. I was thinking I might be a bit blurry eyed if I drove down and then had to be on form at 17:00, yawning during my interview is something I want to avoid.

    The mad thing is that my wife works at de vere and can get discount at the Village in swansea, when she asked for a tarrif for a night it was 'special event price' of £150!!! No idea what the special event is. My interview is a special event but come on!!

    Thanks for the offer to find out from friends at Swansea Levelup, I will try the travel lodge first, I'm sure that will be fine.

    622873 you are a star, even though it might be tempting have a night out to get to know the nightlife of Swansea, trying to sleep pre interview might be hard enough as it is!
