Copied and pasted from a previous thread:

Whilst we can't say exactly what you'll be asked (that's not fair on everyone else) we can give you some general pointers. Obviously the most important questions are: Why Manchester? Why this degree? What do you like about the degree? Where do you see yourself in the future? This will hold true for any degree at any university, so make sure you have some answers prepared. They say you can wear what you want - it means wear a suit (pretty much everyone else will be wearing one) or something very smart casual like collared formal shirt and chinos (think doctor!) Interviews aren't the time to be slopping around!

You'll be given a tour and the opportunity to speak to some current or former students, make sure you ask some useful questions about being a student (timetabling, workload, accommodation, nights out, part-time work etc) which can help you make up your mind. If you have the tour and chat before your interview, use some of the information you've picked up in the interview - e.g. if you're asked "why Manchester?" give your response and then say that you like the facilities or that the students said good things about the availability of jobs or something. Make sure you've re-read your PS and be prepared to answer a few science questions; you won't know the answer, but they'll be looking to see how you approach the situation.

Interviews like this are never as bad as people make out, so don't worry and good luck!

The University of Manchester Faculty of Life Sciences was voted one of the best in the country for student satisfaction. They're very kind and very fair.

Don't lie.
Answer their questions concisely.
If you don't understand a question ask for clarification.
Make sure you know about the University, the Faculty, the outline of the courses

Sneaky hint: The number of optional modules you can take throughout is vast, you can develop a very specialist knowledge or very broad knowledge, which isn't something you have the opportunity to do at other Universities.

Plus the practical units in final year are really interesting and cutting edge.
