    Sorry, I tried searching, but couldn't find a concise answer to my question. The UCL open day/interview day letter states that applicants usually wear smart/casual clothing? If you have attended, or are attending an interview day, and are a male lol, what did you wear, or what are you going to wear?

    If you dress bad you won't get your offer, I know a few people never got their "open day offers" filled- they came up and were dressed a bit... badly. So dress with SOME respect.

    I just did collared long-sleeve shirt, (no tie or jacket), cords, and a non 'garish' pair of socks to match with black shoes.

    Simple, comfortable and nice.

    Wahey.

    I wore jeans, trainers and a t shirt and got an offer. I don't think it matters (though I had the exact same thoughts as you, at the time!).

    **** that ****, turn up in a suit. It'll show them just how seriously you're taking it...

    Besides, in my experience, when they say smart/casual, they actually just mean smart.

    Wow...you remember what you wore to an open day you attended a year ago?

    Plus...if anyone who is going on a future open day is reading this...jeans are fine, just wear them with a shirt (or the equivalent for girls...I wore cords and a cardigan but could've worn jeans and a cardigan).

    I really doesn't matter what you wear, as long as you wear something. Your interviewers are potentially your lecturers/ class tutors for the next few years, and they aren't going to make any serious judgments on your fashion sense; they want see how you respond to their qs's/ if your vaguely interested in your subject. Just go in something your most comfortable in (as long as your not a neo-nazi/ into bondage/ have strange fetishes).
    Also, if you really want to show respect, go as Ali G. At least they'll remember you.

    Well, I am heading down for my interview on Wednesday, and I plan to wear my jeans, that looks smart enough, a light shirt and dark Vans. Oh, and a black jacket...

    Think this is smart enough? It's not like i am going for Medicine or anything, so I can't see it being that fussy. Any thoughts?

    I am not particularly comfortable in smart black shoes, and I don't really know whats appropriate.

    I have an interview for German then too... It's better to be comfortable, I suppose... Aslong as you don't look to scruffy...
