    I’ve gotten an interview for my dream university! So naturally I’m hella nervous. Does anybody have any tips? Obviously nobody knows what question they’ll ask so hurt general advice would be great. Thanks!

    I’m at Liverpool Uni now and my advice would be 1) Tell them what they want to hear but try to be realistic, 2) Relax, treat it as a ‘chat’ rather than an interview, they want to know what kind of person you are 3) Express why it’s your dream uni, show your knowledge of the uni and the city, 4) Dress smart and come prepared (have a cv to hand, a copy of your statement and application) first impressions are everything! 5)Express how well you deal with time management, the work load is one of the biggest things at uni and if they know you can handle that, then why wouldn’t they let you in! Finally) Express your interest in extra curricular activities... say you want to join your course society etc.

    ^^This, as another Liverpool student the advice given here is very useful!
    I would add don't be afraid to have an opinion provided you can show reasoning as to why you have arrived at it and taken into consideration other views. A vague style question is just an invitation to show your thinking process and isn't one to shy away from.

    Good luck
