    Just wondering if anyone has attended a Cardiff University interview and what it will entail?

    I'm going to the architectural and civil engineering department on 4th December!! What questions are likely to be asked and does the day actually take 9:45-15:00?

    Yea me too, I've emailed admissions and she said it's very informal and they ask "one thought experiment question to see how I problem solve" so I think it's mainly to see if you're not a complete dweeb and to show off their facilities. I'll let you know how I get on on the 4th 😫

    It was a group thing with 10 minutes with a professor alone.. Basically to see why you wanted to do it and a diff question which I couldn't answer🙈 He explained it though. Labs were cool, had an offer 2 days later. Can't wait to get exams over to hopefully get in. Have you applied there?

    Ahhh cool, the group was mainly all architectural engineers. Let me know what is in your group?! it's a basic activity to build the highest tower out of spaghetti and midget gems. A little tour and chat about the campus. Good luck!!

    it was basically why you wanted to do engineering, and one actual technical question but they basically said being invited to the day = offer, as the interview didn't determine offers so you'll be fine!

    Quick question, I have an interview next month at Cardiff university for Accounting and management NN24 , and am basically s***ing my self for the interview. A brief English and mathematics test will be carried out alongside with an interview, however since this is my first option I don't really want to mess this opportunity up. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should respond and how the test are normally carried out?? Much appreciated
