    Hi there,

    This is one of my choices and I've been invited to University of Kent for an interview. I am hoping to study Computing with a year in the industry.

    Has anybody had an interview this Kent or another university? What sort of questions do they ask?

    I just came back from my interview from kent last week.


    Well the applicant day thing started at 10.15 and i reached there at 11.30 i didn't miss much from what i heard just a question and answer thing and a boring presentation. After that we had lunch and tour around the campus. i guess it was standard. Next we had another presentation and after that we had a few boring activities. We were split into 2 groups. One group waited for there interview the other group did some activities.


    Well the interview was informal don't worry about anything. They just ask you questions based on your personal statement. i kinda lied a bit on my ps but they don't really care. They will also ask you what do you know about computers so far, if you know any programming and etc. make sure you are prepared to ask questions it got kinda awkward cus mine was quick and we had 5min left and i said nothing LOL

    Yeah they were really friendly. Tbh most of the lecturers or professors( what ever they are called) were really old. i dont know why i find that weird. Its a good idea to re read your statement but its not a must.

    I applied for Leeds, Lancaster, Essex, Kent and brunel. i've only been to Kent and brunel. I Had an interview at essex today but couldn't be arsed to go xD. I really like kent but its a dead place. Before visiting the uni's My order of preference was, Leeds, lancaster essex kent and brunel. Now its Leeds followed my Kent

    Ah that's good! Hahah more experience I suppose which is good. I'm guessing you're going to study Computer Science? As in the actual place Kent or university campus life? I don't know if I want to go to Kent but they were high up in the ranking of Computer Science so I chose them and they're one of the best for my chosen course; Computing.

    Never been to Kent and I missed the open days as I was busy and I went other Unis.

    To be honest most open days and aplicant days are the same. Which uni's have you applied for? and yeah ithe kent uni is a place called canterbury which is really small and looks awesome too. Im studying computer science and the only reason why i applied there is cus they dont require a b for gcse maths. Im retaking it this summer and if i do get a B or higher i'll go to leeds. Kent is more of a back up

    Yeah well some universities appeal to me better than the others. I applied for Computing (Less mathematical based course), I'm alright at Maths just I was not good in exam haha. My course is on the Medway campus at Kent.


    I've received an unconditional from Bournemouth University (In par with Kent for course statistics).
    Conditional Offer from Swansea University, University of Liverpool, Plymouth University(Don't even like that uni, don't know why I applied).
    Interview from Kent :P
