Interviews

We use interviews to assess your suitability for a course, but they are also a great opportunity for you to find out if your chosen subject is right for you.

We will email you an invitation to interview so make sure you regularly check the email address that you gave on your application form. You can also see interview invitations on UCAS Track.

If you have been invited to an interview, we recommend that you read our booking guide (PDF, 582kB). We've created an interviews factsheet (PDF, 65kB) to help you prepare for the day.

Courses that always interview

The following courses always interview applicants before making an offer. This is because careers in these areas require strong interpersonal skills.
