Next week I have an interview at University with a "smart-casual" dress code. Now, I'm a bit confused as to what to wear as it seems a bit broad, if anyone could help me that would be great. I was originally thinking black chinos with a shirt etc. But, would black jeans be allowed? and what shoes are generally acceptable. I'm a bit confused aha :confused:

To be safe (although some will break this ) no suit (non-matching jacket and trousers permissible), no jeans, no tie under 35, no trainers.

Ok, so would school sort of shoes be acceptable?

A mature man in a sports jacket and tie will not look out of place. A young one will look overdressed.

what university and course has a dress code for interview? I'm supposing business or medicine. When I recall the state of the lecturers when I went for interview, you'd have to suppose the dress code for their side of it was "egg in beard" with matching socks optional and perhaps thought an eccentricity.

Wear what you want. **** 'em. If they're going to be influenced by what you wear, you mightn't want to be going there, and this not merely on point of principle.

I'd say formal shoes (school shoes are fine), chinos/trousers (no jeans, school trousers would do, but they don't have to be black/grey), a shirt (could be colourful, but not over the top) and a nice jumper/cardigan on top seeing as it's cold.
