Admissions Interviews ‌

‌After your UCAS applications are assessed, promising applicants are invited to attend an admissions interview by a member of academic staff. Upon completion of a successful academic interview, an offer will be determined taking into account both feedback gathered at interview and information from your UCAS form.

We interview for two reasons:

  • The interview gives us a better idea of your abilities and personality as paper can be misleading. We aim to get a better picture of who you are as an individual, which will assist us in our selection process.
  • To provide you the opportunity of asking questions about your choice of programme and our Department.

Please note that the wellbeing of our applicants, students and staff is very important to us, therefore our admissions interviews will be taking place online until the situation around the Coronavirus outbreak improves.

Applicants who are selected for an interview will receive an invitation via email from Applicants who confirm their attendance to interview will receive a Joining Instructions email from a week before their interview. Please ensure you check your messages regularly to avoid missing important notifications.
