Nope. Hardly any do. It all depends on the course you apply for.

Most interview for Medicine, with a few notable exceptions. Then aside from Medicine, Oxbridge (for all courses), UCL and Imperial College (for most)... And then some others for only some courses (e.g. Modern Languages).

Depends on the course, certain ones like Medicine require an interview at most of the universities.

Depends on the course. I only had interviews for graphics, and none for sociology.

Also quite a few social work courses do. And then some courses which aren't offered everywhere for A-level, for instance Southampton interview for Philosophy.

Oh, and UCL interview for most (if not all) courses.

My comment was more generalised... but yeah.

Durham University also interviews... I think its physics students. :o:

With art courses you generally need to go present your portfolio. There's also the courses and Unis already mentioned. However as a general rule Unis don't interview.

I think it depends on the course you apply for. I didn't have an interview (studying psychology).
