Their is a sale on at next at the moment,where I picked up a blazer for £40,trousers for £20 and shoes for £42 at River Island.(I already have a smart shirt,and will borrow my dad's tie) There are some bargains to be had.
A friend of mine picked up a full suit for £10 in a charity shop,which he's had for a couple of years
Shop around a bit. Also,lots of women wear suits!

Depends on the subject you've applied for. The likes of medicine and some of the business related degrees, I'd say go for formal. For the likes of sciences (speaking from experience), you could get away with smart casual (no jeans, no trainers), but a suit is a bit OTT.

I'd say anything black and white, nothing too flashy. Something like this:
and yes I know it looks a bit too professional, but along those lines of black skirt and suitable top

I had my interview at harper adams in december, just thought i'd let you know that you spend half the day going on a tour of the campus, sooo you might wanna dress accordingly to that lol
I dont know if you've visted the campus before or not, but a looot of it is farming land. So just a suggestion, maybe don't wear a dress, but smart trousers/jeans and a shirt.
I just wore smart jeans, a shirt and welliees...
Got a conditional from them yesterday

Something smart, better to be overdressed rather than underdressed. I doubt at a university interview they will reject you if you turn up in jeans though. Smart trousers, a t-shirt, a blazer/smart jumper/cardigan, and smart but sensible shoes (as in not trainers or shoes you might wear clubbing) should be fine, but if you can't make an outfit like this, I wouldn't worry.
I think it's important you feel comfortable in what you are wearing, and stay away from low cut tops/ really short skirts/ shorts/ slogans that may be offensive.
