    I have one! What should I be prepared for? Do? Ask? Do not do?

    I'm excited, but also a bit nervous!

    Remember everything you wrote in your personal statment. You might get asked about a few things you wrote in there..... Read around your subject a bit more, i.e. new ideas that have recently come out or whatever. Read about the course at the university that is holding the interview, the sort of things they teach you [they should have some form of outline on their website] and prepare some relelvant questions too...

    DO:

    Definitely research their course - look for something particularly interesting/different about it that you can pick up on - good interviews work like a 2-way conversation. Also, it will impress them that you have researched their course as it shows commitment!

    First impressions and all that, so just be polite and dress appropriately. I'm sure you'd do that anyway

    Have stuff to talk about, be able to expand on the Personal Statement as well as have new stuff to say.

    Maybe see if someone you know or your college can organise a mock interview for you?

    But just be confident, wish you the best of luck!
