Hey guys!
I'm a current student and I'll be happy to help you answer any questions you might have.
I also have a Youtube channel with lots of info you might find useful, and I also help along with other students to make content on the uni's Youtube channel.
I'm happy to help so just reply/leave a message!

Hello, your videos have been really helpful when I've been researching the uni. I'm applying for natural sciences and I just want to know more about the interview because I can't find much information about interviews anywhere. Would you be able to give me an idea of what to expect?
Thankyou

Hello,
They didn't have interviews when I was studying. From what I know at the moment, if you get invited to an interview it's actually to see whether you're a candidate for an unconditional offer (you'll need to check exactly though). It'll probably be very simple: why do you want to study here? why do you want to do this course? and maybe a few questions. It's likely that just by turning up you'll get to see the uni and you'll probably get an offer and if you don't you'll still have a conditional. That's what it's like in the Biology department at the moment so I think it's the same for natsci.
Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Charlotte,

I was wondering if you knew if it's possible to get a refund for travel expenses incurred by going to an interview?

Hey!

I'm Charlie, another ambassador for Lancaster University.

I had to interview in order to obtain my unconditional - personally I don't think I received any travel refunds but I don't think there is any harm in contacting the department which the interview is with and asking.

Hope this was helpful!

Charlie

I really like Lancatser Uni so I want to apply for software engineering and it requires AAB. I still don't have my predicted grades but I hope the are at least AAC/A*AC. For my AS i got A in IT, Maths and Spanish (im only doing the AS for spanish) and a D in Economics which i will be resitting as i didnt do very well. People seem to be applying with much higher grades, would I still have the possibility to get an offer? I was also wondering if they ask for an interview for this course?

I just received an email saying that I have been selected for the Unconditional Offer Scheme, subsequently I need to attend an interview.

If anyone has any further information about this/ how the interview is structured, that would be very helpful

Definitely apply anyway! Everyone's schools have different requirements for predictions (sometimes even differing a lot between subjects). The universities are looking for passion and suitability at the end of the day as well. I would also remember that the Student Room is not fully representative of the general pop. (most people actively participating on it are on the higher end of grade predictions). I wish you all the luck!
