    Bonjour à tous!

    Thought I would get the ball rolling on 2017 as the gateway is now open for browsing.

    Since there is nowhere else more appropriate to post this - does anyone know if interviews will be held in March next year? I'm going to be out of the country for a spell and don't want to miss interviews.

    It completely depends on the set. Some will do them in February, some in March, some possibly in April. They're free to do as they please as long as they're ready to announce offers at 3 May 09:00am.

    Some sets have already posted their timetables on their websites, so check the sets where you want to apply.

    I've got a first round interview at College Chambers in Southampton tomorrow. Does anyone have any experience of an interview there they'd be willing to share? Thanks.

    I think the guidance says March/April for interviews and I know quite a few sets have already given out March dates on their websites. I guess if it isn't long you can mention you will be abroad in the applications?

    I would've thought you could, why ever not?

    I assume you're referring to sets recruiting via Gateway because you say March/April for interviews (non-Gateway sets can interview when they please, and indeed many will do that in February so they can offer pupillages before you can assess your Gateway chances). If you're referring to Gateway sets then the Gateway form itself has a field labelled "Please list any dates when you may NOT be available for interview."

    Oh apologies, I completely misread your comment. That will teach me not to check TSR when I'm one leg out the door.

    For some reason I thought you were saying you'd be abroad and asking whether you can mention that in your application. I now saw the post again and realised that wasn't the case at all. My bad!

    Well done, good luck!

    Generally, how many are you guys sending? I'm doing five pre-Gateway and maybe 10 on Gateway.

    Thank you. First time for me. Got the first one in to a non-Gateway set on the 31st, now working on some others with January deadlines. Oh, and BARSAS!
