What did people wear for their interviews? I'm starting to go crazy trying to figure out what is too formal and what is too casual.
Went to my interview on the 28th, its informal and more of a chitchat as opposed to an actual interview. Everyone was dressed casually, I myself wore black jenes, blue top and a jacket.

Not yet, on Wednesday when I went for my interview the chat went well and he said he'd give me the standard offer so I assume it'll show up on UCAS at some point this week.

I'm going to the open day in the 11th! Who else is on here?
Also been invited to this 'experience Essex' day for the 28th to get an insight more as to what my course will be like
I have an offer for International Relations
Essex has recently been ranked the top politics department in the UK according to the REF 2014 results... Hope this is accurate! Lol but yeah...
I'm currently set on going to both the open day and the offer holder say, but I want your opinions on whether it's really worth going to both... Will the open day be enough

ALSO - I will need to find a job to support myself if I go to the uni as I will be living in halls and my student loan won't cover all my living costs..
Do they have any on campus jobs available and stuff?

In terms of which day is more important, the offer holder day is, you'll get to have a taster of what your lessons will be like and it will be a lot more specific to your course. So that day will be of more value to you, plus everything you do at the opening day like campus and accommodation tours will also be included in the offer holder day as well.

Yes, do they do have on campus jobs, so you should be able to get one of those.

Do you happen to know what sort of jobs? and a rough salary? Also are they difficult to get? I'd imagine lots of people in my situation wanting to get them...

I've had mine - it's literally an informal chat with one of the admissions tutors.

the woman who took our interview - Diedra? (spelt it wrong) was very nice, she asked us each what literature we liked and what we read etc (not as a test but why we liked what we like, very easy) and then we looked at a Petrarchan sonnet and the prologue to Romeo and Juliet and just discussed it. Was very easy going. Just dont be the person who lists off reading the books they did for A level...

Just got an unconditional offer for the history program. Are there any other history offer holders?

Still waiting responses from my other 4 applications, so did not quite decide yet.

I really messed up my interview because of nerves. People were just dressed smartish, so like dark jeans and shirt with a jumper or dresses and things like that. One or two people were in suits but they looked ridiculous in all fairness. The questions were like why law, why essex, a problem question and then a question asking about a relevant current affair. They may be different for you but that was mine. The interview is about 20 minutes so be prepared for that. Good luck though!

I was interviewed at the same time by 2 people, one lecturer and one student. They're individual interviews.

Ah right, thanks for your help, did they say anything about how long it'd take for a response on UCAS?
