    hi guys i received an interview for magdalen psychology, should i wear a suit (i'm a girl)?? thanks!!
    Omg!!!! Congrats!
    You don't have to at all. your tutor won't be wearing one so just wear whatever is comfortable. Xx
    How did you find the TSA btw? Also would you mind if I asked what your stats are? Thanks x

    Thank you! I am coming from the US alone, so I will probably take the direct shuttle.
    I think I will do that too, I am coming alone from Germany

    When I was allocated to St Hugh's, I was asked to notify the college if I require an interview via Skype/Telephone. Since I'm an international student, I emailed them requesting one and got an email of acknowledgement. However, I got my invitation to interview yesterday, but it makes no mention of a Skype interview. I would love to visit Oxford but I don't think I'll get a visit visa in four days. Are they implying that they won't be conducting an interview over Skype, or have I just been sent the standard interview email?

    Anyone else in the same position?

    I'm in a similar position, but my interview email noted that I "requested a skype interview" and so another admissions officer would "be in touch next week". Email your college back to ask for skype arrangements.

      For the Modern Languages interviews, does anyone know how proficient we need to be (in a language taken to A Level)? Is it better to try and sound natual, or to try and consciously integrate complex phrases into your speech?

      Definitely this.
      I use it all the time - by far the easiest and most stress-free way of travelling to and from Heathrow into Oxford, especially after a trans-Atlantic flight!
      I wouldn't recommend using the Oxford tube from Heathrow, sure it's cheaper, but it often gets caught up in the hideous central London traffic, and can take forever, especially in rush hour - not fun. The airline bus is great, and the bus station in Oxford (where you get off) is very central, and no more than a 10 minute walk to most colleges, or a £5 cab journey, depending on how energetic you're feeling.

      Hi I'd say be natural. They know your language is at a high level or else you wouldn't have done very well on the MLAT or achieved good A level grade! Don't stress too much - they just want to see that you're willing to try!

      Congrats on the interview!! What languages have you applied for and which college gave you an interview?

      Anyone else heard from Brasenose for a Science subject? I'm Biochem and super excited for my interviews. I can see a lot of Arts students with interviews at Brasenose but no Science!

      anyone who is applying to Brasenose - there is a thread for the college but it's kinda dead. It would be so great to see who has got interviews/who is applying since this thread is really busy!

      HI

      I want to lay my my card out on the table ( because obviously you'll look at my previous posts )

      Ok so , I'm an Etonian gong into the sixth form at Westminster because I want to be in Central London ( many reasons )

      I'm fairly sure ( after being top in my school ) that unless I go even more completely insane ,
      I will one day an interview for Oxford// MIT /Princeton for Physics -


      BUT - I write on behalf of the daughter of a family friend , who hasn't enjoyed anywhere like the privilege I have ...
      ( in fact I would say very poor / council estate / parents on DSS etc )

      SO PLEASE take this seriously

      Her mum tells me that she is SO AFRAID and Nervous coz Oxford have invited her for an interview for BA History

      - SO NO JOKES PLEASE

      please - Any Advice for her interview - she is top History in her school ( but the school is to be honest - inner city state /
      none of her teachers went to Oxford or Cambridge .... )

      - so you good people / Any tips would be very very welcome ASAP please

      Ta peeps )

      James
      I'm applying to BA history too from a similar background as her, what college did she apply to? The best advice I can give is that she know her personal statement inside out, have a go at some of the questions on the oxford website and try to enjoy the experience. She will do well at any university she attends if she's applying to oxford.
