    I did and I was the only one. Most people just wore jeans, t-shirt, etc. including the lecturers.

    go in something smart casual... i wore jeans, a shirt and a jumper to mine which was comfortable but gave a good impression because i looked tidy.

    Be clean and be sure to look tidy and well-presented whilst remaining comfortable. Even if everyone else is dressed casually, it's good to make efforts such as cleaning your shoes and ironing your clothes to give a better impression.

    People wear jeans and stuff to interviews? :O Maybe I'm jaded by the general "suit or shirt and suit trousers" dress code for medic interviews.

    Smart casual is the way forward imo. It's easy for a bloke - just stick on a (not necessarily white) shirt and tie.

    If my (albeit post-offer) experience was anything to go by, the interview you have will be largely informal. Don't go formal, but don't exactly go turning up in trackies and a baseball cap.

    I had an interview at Southampton for modern languages, and I just wore an outfit i would normally wear to sixth form - black skirt and a woolly jumper. Nothing too fancy, but not massively formal/informal. Most important to wear something you are comfortable in so you don't spend the whole time worrying!

    (I got an offer, by the way!)

    Wear something smart/casual, more smart if it's for a professional course.

    I had my interview on Wednesday and got the offer letter on Saturday. This was a few years ago though.
