    My friend has an interview coming up for studying costume design and she's getting abit stressed out about what they might ask her. Just wondering if anyone can give any insight into what questions they might ask and what she can prepare for?

    Cheers.

    Hi jebbadiah,

    Please tell your friend not to panic! I don't know if she knows this, but we have interview/portfolio advice specifically for the Costume Design course, which I'll link below:

    Interview/Portfolio Advice

    My personal advice to her is that it is more important that she shows a passion and enthusiasm about studying Costume design. Tell her to make sure she knows the course she is applying for, and the portfolio she is doing, inside out. This will help her to show her passion for the subject, and help with her confidence. She will also find that she doesn't need to think very much about what the answers to the questions are!

    The interviewers will know that there is a chance this could be her first ever interview and that she will be nervous, they are not going to try and catch her out by asking difficult questions! If she is asked a question that she needs to think about/doesn't know the answer, tell her that she doesn't have to answer straight away, have a little think (and she can ask for them to repeat the question!)

    Please wish her good luck from me, and I hope it goes well for her!

    Thanks,

    Ellen
