Same I got invited for an interview. Mine is in Feb. I’m not really sure what questions they ask but from their website probably stuff like “why optometry” and what relevant skills do you have?

Hope that helps
Hey, i had my interview a few weeks ago and got an offer. The interview is alot more relaxed. It's with two people, one of them is a student I'm guessing who already does Optometry. They ask about why you chose the uni in comparison to others and just a bit about yourself. The interviewers are very friendly and its okay to be abit nervous at the start but the interview is kinda like a normal convo. They did like hearing about any experience I had etc. so I would include any relevant skills and experience etc.

I've recently received an interview confirmation email but it doesn't state an interview date. Does it apply to all applicants?

It should state a date and time. I received an email a few weeks ago and my interview date is 27th February. They may send you further details later?

This is what I received in my email. Just curious why there is a big space and no link, I thought everyone has the same issue. Should I send an email to ask about that?

Yes I think you should send an email as they may have not filled out the email properly. There should be two links: one for the welcome talk and one for your interview lobby.

Do you think it would matter if you dont have any experience? I was due to get some around this time but due to covid it got cancelled.

I would suggest to talk about something else about visual health and your interests regarding optometry. I added the experience bit myself but they didn't ask me anything about experience.
