    In about 3 weeks I’ve got an interview at Lancaster university to see whether I’m eligible for an unconditional offer as I already have a conditional offer.
    I was wondering if anyone has been to one of these kinds of interviews and knows any of the questions they might ask?

    I went to one for English Language and Linguistics a few weeks ago and they were super informal, the woman I had basically just spent 15 minutes chatting with me about my personal statement, so make sure you know it inside out (and also ensure that if some of it is BS, you can blag it, which was my problem). They might ask something about where you’re thinking of going with the degree, e.g. careers-wise or further study, and then they ask you if you have any questions for them, so maybe prepare some because it’s always good to appear proactive. Hope this helps

    Sorry for the late reply but no worries, if you have any more questions about it I’m happy to answer them. Good luck for your interview, it seems to me that everyone who went for one ended up getting an unconditional (or at least everyone I’ve asked did) so you should be absolutely fine 😊 - what course is it for?

    That’s an interesting combo, have you got any idea where you’d take that in the future?

    Honestly I've got no idea. On my year abroad, I'm hoping to teach English with the British Council, so if I enjoy that then teaching might be an option. There's languages jobs in MI5 which would be super cool, if not a bit unrealistic

    Yeah that would be awesome to do, sounds like you’ve got more of a plan than most
