Hi everyone,
I haven't found a thread for this yet and so thought it would be good to have one where international applicants could post questions and everything.
I have a question about interviews, an international applicant who has already gone through the process would be very helpful with this:

Is there a way to prevent having to go back and forth from the UK? Since I live in Canada it would be both expensive and inefficient. I know you can mention to them like if you have two interviews you can ask for a rearrangement so you can do both at the same time, but what if you only have one? For example, if a university gives me an interview in November, I can't ask the others to do it around then if they haven't even offered me an interview right?

Another question I have: Where on UCAS do we post our grades and transcripts?

Thanks!

There is a section on UCAS application for alternate qualifications (drop down menu) , you enter your Canadian grade 12 (or grade 11 if you are still at school) grades in %. At some point , you'll be asked by the university to send original transcripts.

With regards to interviews, tough luck. You may or may not be able to arrange one trip, but be prepared for two. Three would be really back luck. But airfare is nothing comparing to what you'll be paying for international tuition fees.
