    I think it's especially helpful to know what your plans are after uni, as this will ensure you are not having second thoughts about your course

    Generally for any interview:

    Be yourself
    Body language is very important, how you sit and talk etc.
    Shake their hand only if they offer it ( At least that's what I remember reading)

    I had a student this year who interviewed at Cumbria. Whilst I don't know and wouldn't disclose anyway what the interview structure was like, he said it was the one he enjoyed the most. Very friendly staff and they just wanted to hear about his experience as much as possible. Each question gives you an opportunity to reflect on your experience – as does any interview – so just spot opportunities and it should work in your favour.*

    Thank you all so much for your feedback! I had my interview and it was quite a tricky one with very narrow questions but I woke up the next day to an offer, then within hours they confirmed my place!
