I have been invited to attend a visit day tomorrow for The University of Manchester. The day is meant to include a tour, with hands-on practicals etc. But there has been mention of an interview with academic staff. I have been to a similar open day at Southampton, which had also included an interview, however they seemed to boast of a more informal attitude to the interview. What I am wondering, is whether anyone else has been to Manchester already for a visit day with an interview as I am unsure of how formal this will be, and additionally how much pressure they put on applicants in general. More specifically, I am applying to the EEE course for MEng.
I was speaking to other applicants for the same course who had been for an interview, but said that this lasted for an hour or so, but they didn't mention the day being a visit day, and perhaps more of just an interview.
