    So I am applying for accounting and finance but I'm a bit clueless on what to write about hobbies and interests i.e. skills gained from outside the academic field of study that could be linked to A&F. So, what skills relevant to my course could I include for a market research interviewer, retail assistant, voluntary work i.e. parents evening etc.

    Any ideas / help would be much appreciated.

    Just describe your interests and hobbies and find from them what skills you have gained. E.g. sports-> commitment to something, makes you persistent, confidence, teamwork skills , learn to lose and you'll find something to connect with your field
