    Just wondering what people would wear to an interview at a university; I've heard people saying it's practically de rigueur to wear a suit and others saying that jeans and a t-shirt is acceptable.

    What do you guys think?

    At my interviews, I usually wear a knitwear jumper, with some nice looking Jeans, and a pair of Timberland Boots. Basically, a good mix of Casual-ness, with a hint of Professional-ness.

    It depends what the Uni says, if anything. If they say smart-casual, that means anything really within reason.
    Suit up if you want though, can't hurt.

    Smart, every time regardless of the course/uni. Personally I dont think jeans/t shirt is appropriate. I went for a uni interview in Sep and everyone was wearing shirt/tie, suit trousers, blouses/skirt for women etc.

    I would always opt for something a little formal, id much rather be too formal than too casual. Plus the fact that they can see youve made an effort cant do any harm

    I know I'm going to have to have interviews (I'm wanting to do Nursing) so I'll probably wear a coloured blouse and nice-looking smart trousers and black shoes.

    For a guy it'd be good to wear a shirt with some nice trousers? Also, some nice shoes too.

    Nothing.

    I'd aim to bribe them with my body.
