So I had an email today from the University of South Wales about attending an interview in two weeks time.
The course I've chosen is Aircraft Maintenance and I really want to do it at Uni South Wales, so since they've invited me to attend an interview it's a good sign right?
Also the email states its an informal interview. Does anyone know what type of questions they ask or what is talked about? I know every interview is different but I'm a bit nervous and want to prepare.

This is going to be an example of a university with delusions of grandeur trying to make their course look more competitive (and therefore desirable) than it really is by getting everyone along to interview. They will be looking to use the day as a marketing tool, by showing you all the facilities and whatnot.
I'll bet my bottom dollar that everyone, or almost everyone, who is invited for interview gets an offer.
Frankly though, I'm surprised (shocked) that aircraft maintenance is considered a degree subject now - and I say this as someone who spent much of her teenage years on and above an airfield, so I do have some idea what I'm on about. I would encourage you to ask some very probing questions at interview about how many people get jobs in aircraft maintenance afterwards - make sure you get figures, not just comforting noises like "oh, quite a few". I'd also encourage you to look at alternative ways in which you could get into the industry, such as apprenticeships.
Finally, have you considered aeronautical engineering? It's all about building things that fly, and if you have the grades for it and some level of aptitude for maths and physics, it offers much better career opportunities.
