    I've recently been rejected by a uni having been interviewed. I've asked for feedback, but they've been uncooperative and just given me the spiel about the number of applicants, competition etc.

    Has anyone got any tips to get feedback out of a uni after an unsuccessful application? I would just like to know why I've been rejected, that's all.

    It depends on who you're talking to. If you haven't already, try and email someone in the department, like your subject admissions officer. It should be them who can tell you, rather than a general member of University staff.

    Well they did answer? it may not have been specific enough, or what you wanted to hear, but from what I've seen on tsr, this is the sort of reply you will get...
    Something must've gone wrong in the interview, so perhaps try and improve your interview technique with a tutor or teacher or someone, and they'll be able to help you with that.
    Maybe it was to do with enthusiasm/interest? assuming your grades were up to scratch.
    I'm sorry you didn't get in, but maybe with the increased competition, there simply just were better candidates :/
    You could possibly ask about specific feedback from your interview? Or is that what you did say?
