Hi, I've applied for a few courses for primary education, I have an interview at UWS Ayr soon, and the email says I will have to give a two minute oral presentation on something I am "passionate about, such as a book, a poem, a film, a piece of music, a hobby, or a place." Does anyone know what exactly they're looking for here? Can I talk about anything at all or are they looking for something more academic? I'm really nervous and want to make a good impression, so if any of you could give me some advice that'd be great!

I´m no expert, but I´d think that whatever you talk about it should either:
a) Be relevant to the course or
b) Illustrate something central in your character e.g. commitment/motivation/perserverance
If they didn´t specifically ask for it, I would personally talk about something that was not directly my subject, but perhaps somehow related anyway. My guess is that they ask you to talk about something that you´re enthusiastic about, because it gives them an impression of you as a person and because it may take away your nerves (i.e. you will be able to talk more freely throughout the rest of the interview).
Hope it all goes well for you
