    Hey I will be applying from Northern Ireland to do Mechanical Engineering to various universities and I am still deciding on the last couple to complete my application. Basically I am thinking of choosing 2 between Bristol, Bath and Southampton for Mechanical Engineering. My question is do all of them require an interview? because that would mean I have to travel to 5 different unis in total for interviews which would be pretty inconvenient but anyway I just want to know. Also, which would you consider to be the best for Mechanical Engineering (apart from what league tables would say)?

    n.b. I will be applying to Cambridge and Imperial too so it would be nice if I could apply to other unis that didn't require an interview.

    Thanks very much!

    Only Oxbridge and Imperial use interviews as a key part of Admissions. For other universities it's really more of a casual chat... indeed you might be able to avoid going at all if you explain your travel difficulties.

    Either way, Bristol, Bath don't normally interview for MechEng. I don't think Soton does either.

    It may be different for Internationals. But some other universities do indeed interview for MechEng; Loughborough for example. But as I said, they aren't "academic" or difficult interviews.

    Only face-to-face.

    And Cambridge is also only face-to-face (except VERY rarely for some internationals).
