    They will probably make you an offer and use the opportunity to try and sell the uni to you

    If you wear a suit you'll be better dressed than your interviewed in most cases.

    Smart enough to go out for a meal with your nan is best IMO. T shirt and jeans is fine as long as they're not falling apart/covered in dirt.

    There seems to be enormous insecurity about what to wear, and conforming generally, among young people these days, which is ironic given it is supposed to be the time of life for non-conformity and expressing differences.

    There is a golden (and very simple) rule for interviews, which I have mentioned many times on TSR, and it applies, with very few exceptions, to all interviews, whether for work or university:

    Wear what you would expect to wear normally if you are successful at the interview.


    For university interviews this means you can wear whatever you are comfortable in, as long as it is clean, decent, unprovocative, wholesome and in good repair.
