    Hello! I was just re-looking at Westminster's entry requirements to study law and I noticed at the bottom that you might be invited to an interview! 😨 I'm really awful in situations like that and I just need to understand the likelihood of me being invited to an interview?

    Thanks

    Good morning Samihab,

    Don't fret, I don't think there are many people who enjoy going to interviews, whether it's for a place at a university or a job. The likelihood of being invited for an interview, especially for Law is quite high but there are ways that you can prepare for the interview, so that nerves or anxieties don't get the better of you on the day.

    I know that, that is easier said than done but here are a few tips to follow:

    Research the type of interview: what I mean by this is there is an interview, created to test you and then there is an informal chat, built more to encourage you to come to that university. It also varies depending on your subject, so for law, you'll more than likely be discussing that!

    This gives you an advantage when it comes to showing your enthusiasm and passion for your subject. You need to show that you want to study law, above all else. You may be asked to expand upon certain aspects of your personal statement, or discuss what you do outside of your academic studies.

    Making the conversation a two-way-street is also very important in an interview, interact with your interviewer/s and ask questions. Make sure that you're not just answering your question as quickly as possible, talk about the subject and give anecdotal evidence of the things you can do/have spoken about before.

    This is just a little generic advice and I hope it helps, if you have any further questions or would like any more advice/have any more questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Best wishes,

    A lot of universities say that students might be invited to interview, but ultimately only interview a few people - it typically occurs when a candidate's qualifications are unusual, or they're a mature student, or something like that. The chances that you'll actually be summoned are quite small, and if they do require an interview, they should give you lots of notice.
