    It's really easy to get to the uni from the city centre. You'll be fine!
    As long as they're in the afternoon then it's fine for me, my plane lands in soton at 10am so that gives me time to chill out and have a coffee and go over some answers.
    I hope so I want to try and get there for mid-day at latest so there's plenty of time, but the coach can take over 5hrs, and the train about 4 and a half, so yeah confused :confused:

    Thats why I wanted to fly rather than get the coach
    but yeah once you get into southampton it's just one bus to the campus.

    What (approx.) time do you think the interview will be? I'm trying not to worry but the panics beginning to settle in and that's just about getting there.

    Last year they started at about 1pm if I remember correctly. Just email them and ask for an afternoon slot.

    I'm hoping there will be a tour this time, as there wasn't last year. Maybe NothingWorks can answer this one?

    Are you around on the 29th? Snooping around the campus by yourself just isn't quite the same.

    Either one would be good! Last year I just wondered around the campus for half an hour and then got on the bus back to the city centre

    I know

    My Dad wants to come with me to Soton so at least I won't be stuck for 7hrs on the coach by myself. Though looking at the coach times it's gonna be a tight squeeze as I'll only be there for like 3 hours before going home again.
    Do you know by any chance know where parents might be able to wait while I'm doing the interview? Can they wait in the waiting rooms? Do there even be parents there? Sorry for bombarding you with questions but I'm just wondering what he'll have to do.

    Parents usually wait by reception, but there is a cafe in building 85 if they so wish. The interviewees are collected every 10 minutes or so by a current student and taken down past the cafe to where the interviews are held.
