I also recieved a letter from Essex asking me to go in for the informal interview on the 25 of Feb for English Lit. I was wondering how long is the actual interview for as I live about 2 hours away and saw someone on Twitter say it was only for 15 mins! :| also I'm wondering what's the actual point for the interview?
Did you get an offer or is that interview to decide whether you get an offer

I haven't recieved an offer yet, so I'm guessing it's just whether they offer me a place or not.

I recieved an email instead of a letter saying they recieved my offer. I sent it off I think just a little over a week ago. What about you?

im not a massive fan of clubbing but I'll give this a shot

The uni had an onsite club (sub zero) which puts on about 3 main nights a week - weds, fri and sat There are also other nights during the week (ie some Thursday's are free entry for something like 80s). The uni also has 2 bars onsite - the SU bar which does special nights (ie cheesy music Monday, pub quiz, super Sunday (cheap drinks) etc). There is also top bar on campus which is more like a traditional pub. There are some clubs and bars in Colchester but I haven't been out there in the evening so I can't comment on the town
What about Colchester itself and general student life there? Would you say its lively/boring? Is there even a shopping mall ? Colchester appears rather old and quiet from what iv seen on the net..

I had an interview here for Biomedical Science and it was only 15 mins but there were other activities and talks during the day. They give you a timetable when you get there and register. I also live about 2 hours away and they are covering the costs of travel too so overall I think it's worth it! Good luck.

From my experience (only a first year) people generally stay on campus. There are some clubs and bars in colchester, but I cant really comment on it. There isn't a traditional shopping mall, however there are two outdoor squares with shops on them and there is also the high street (there are plenty of shops, although there isn't a primark for some reason)

I went to an open day a couple of months ago and I loved the uni! It's a proper on campus uni, so there is accommodation on campus. There are also banks on campus and a post office. I loved the student feel of the university and how the uni give you a lot of support throughout your study there.

Anyone else got their interview on Feb 4th? And those who have already had theirs, what were people wearing? Do I need to dress up or is it just casual clothing?

I'm applying for psychology. Essex is my second choice after Lancaster, so I'm hoping for an offer. Sent off my application two days ago, so I'm expecting to wait a while.

I sent in an application to study criminology with social psychology around 3/4 weeks back and I'm still waiting for a reply (fingers crossed). I'm from up Lancashire, so if I do go down to the UoE, it's going to be a massive change of scenery for me. Any current students who were in the same situation as me got any advice on how to better settle in?

I've got an interview on the 4th of february as well! It says on the letter that they don't expect you to wear formal clothing but I'm going to dress in something smart casual I guess.. I dunno !!!!! I would like to hear from someone who has been through the whole interview process as well
