I had an interview at UCL for Russian and French. It's very easy, to the point of being a waste of time. The portion of my interview in French consisted of the interviewer asking me what differences I felt there were between French & English life (ie. standard GCSE fodder).

Personally, I feel UCL's policy of interviewing candidates stems from its massive inferiority complex about Oxbridge admissions. The interviews are more a formality than a way of testing potential candidates.

I'd tell him/her not to worry too much about it. Provided that he/she has done a bit of outside reading and can hold a conversation in Spanish for five minutes, he/she should be fine.
