    Hi

    So I currently have an interview at a university for a course I would like to study there in a few weeks and I was just wondering if anyone could give me some tips on how to prepare for the interview.

    E.g. what to bring, how to dress, should anything be rehearsed etc.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    You dont say your course.

    Dress smart casual. Some unis dont mind, but being a scruff might not be ok on some courses and some unis.


    Normal questions. search the website and get an idea of who they look for.


    Who are you ?
    why this uni?
    Why this course?
    What motivates you?
    What makes you suited and what can you contribute as a student?
    What do you intend to do in the future?
    They might ask you about the ps and your application.
    They might ask about the subject. maybe some stories of interest in the news?


    Should just be a chat,

    Plan and arrive on time. read your letter it should say iif anything special is for the ay or just a short chat.

    When I had one of my uni interviews, I went in a full suit... Honestly I felt a little overdressed I'd say anything more than a button shirt and nice trousers is a bit of overkill. Smart casual is your best bet!

    Question-wise, expect questions like:
    Why this specific uni?
    What do you find most interest about your topic area?
    What you look forward to most on the course?
    What are your hobbies and interests?
