    Ah yeah I'm the same really, I struggle thinking on the spot but at least a written interview is easier than a face to face one. Good luck with the rest of your choices

    Good luck for the interview and hopefully you'll hear from the others soon. I have only applied to BCU as I have a family and can't move. They are verifiying my qualifications (and I don't have the details of my GCSE's which is a problem) and waiting for an additional reference before making a decision.

    How did everyone find the MMU interview yesterday? I thought the interview went ok but I felt let down by the uni and the focus they seem to place on research as opposed to teaching. Does anyone who goes there have any thoughts about this? Just the fact that the woman who spent the day with us was a researcher and not a teacher on the course anymore was strange, and I didn't think much of the "short guided tour" ha.
    Didn't get this impression at my interview last year nor do I feel this way as a student at MMU - thought Manchester and Sheffield were the ones more focused on academia and research of the unis I visited - I chose MMU because of its more hands-on approach! Weird how what suits one doesn't suit others but good luck anyway. Do you know the name of the woman who showed you around?

    Don't think DMU have ever interviewed before so you will all be going in blind.

    Good luck!

    I'm in the AM interview, finishes at 12! Yeah I'm nervous, the fact that it's their first year of interviewing kinda adds the pressure a bit.

    I was there yesterday too and yes they did seem to cut some bits off. The tour and meeting tutors? I was hoping to meet some students to get more of a feel for the course! I liked the research talk though, they seem to have some experts there.
    Are they not your top choice then?

    Thanks Yes I had my first interview at MMU yesterday, I think it went okay but it's hard to tell. I know lots of people are still waiting to hear back from the first round of interviews so I'm not expecting a reply for a while. I hope you hear back soon by the way!

    I also have interviews at Marjon and Leeds coming up but haven't heard from Manchester it BCU yet.
    Did you have a favourite between Manchester and MMU?

    I received an offer for Psychology and Language Sciences, but I know at least 2 people on here have got replies for SaLT offers.
