UCL open day invitation before interview? watch

    • Thread Starter

    hey all,

    Im invited to a (compulsary) open day at UCL but haven't heard anything about an interview, so i'm wondering if this is a normal thing? because some friends of mine have an interview during their open day but i havent heard about that!

    For psychology the open day is essential to go to to get an offer. That + the questionnaire is instead of an interview.

    Are you sure your course interviews?

    hello, i'm in the exact same position as you. i checked on their website and i found this:
    ''If you are based in the UK and your application demonstrates you have the potential to meet our academic requirements, you will normally be invited to interview. The interview will be relatively informal and provides you with the opportunity to meet with staff and current students and to see UCL.''

    but idk if this means that there will definitely be an offer at the end :////

    Looking at the schedule of the day and timing within the year, it's a conversion activity - it's there to encourage you to pick UCL as your firm / insurance choice, rather than being there to decide whether or not to give you an offer. That said, I would still ensure that you go along and make a good impression - they're under no obligation to give you an offer.
