are you going to button up the jacket? ...It shouldn't matter to be honest, I'd stick with a normal classy one if I was to wear one, ever. lol

btw ...cream-ish shirt will look better than either white or maroon.

most people went in full suit and tie at cardiff, at oxford more casual - no tie, shirt and jumper maybe. I just went for shirt and smart trousers plus a coat which i took off, of course.

I hate giving the impression of being stuffy, and I think sometimes, it can have a negative effect, especially if your application is filled with wild and snazzy things which actually make you stand out from the 'oh I worked in a GP's office for a month and got AAAAAAA' lol....(well mine was). You want to be smart, but a little bit casual, and definately not toooo casual, but also, a suit is a total no no.

Suit but make sure you've got a wad of cash in the pocket casually exposed, if you feel it's going badly just say "Whoops looks like you dropped something there"

Which university is it?

Some will prefer very smart outfits while others suggest smart casual in the letter that you get from them.

If you are unsure it is probably better to go for smart rather than smart casual.

I think it's quite important wearing something you feel comfortable in that won't distract you during your interview (hopefully!)
If you feel uncomfortable in a suit then go for a smart alternative as already said e.g.: jumper plus shirt?
There's an "Official what you're wearing to interview thread" on here so you can check that out if you want more ideas.

I bought a topman suit for my interviews, all under £100 including shoes which is reasonable for such an occasion...

I felt overdressed at oxford, there were only 2 or 3 other people wearing suits at my college and they were all medics (although lots of people wore their schools blazers!!)...

and then I felt underdressed at UCL, every single boy was in a black suit (mine was brown and slightly more modern than most) and plenty of the girls too (although there was one who was wearing a really short skirt, but wow she could totally pull it off lol just hope she didn't get a woman interviewing her )

Suit - standard

Fair enough its not compulsory, but at my interviews every single person wore a suit so to at least avoid standing out too much its probably best to at least wear a shirt and tie (blazer can maybe be replaced by a jumper if it makes you more comfortable)

As long as you look respectable, it doesn't matter what you wear! The essentials being a shirt, smart trousers and smart shoes. That's it!

nice I was thinking about wearing my dads royal college tie if I get an interview at cardiff :p: but I think they'd get the wrong impression completely lol :sigh:

but it seems unlikely now regardless, think they've interviewed most candidates! :rolleyes:



EDIT: *important!* I know for a fact that many people who do these kinds of interviews are likely to notice your shoes... I bought a new pair specifically for my med interviews!! you don't have to buy new shoes, but I know some people would recommend that you do!

Black and brown are both as acceptable as each other - just wear the one you look better in/feel more comfortable in

I reckon a skinny tie would be fine
