Campus tours

There will be a tour of the campus and a talk by the programme director. Guests are welcome to accompany you for the tour and talk.

Bringing ID to your interview

You must bring photo ID with you to your interview. We will not keep a copy of your ID; we will just need to see it when you arrive to verify that you are the candidate we have invited. If you do not have photo ID, you will not be allowed to take part in the interview.

Examples of suitable photo ID include (but are not limited to):

  • Passport
  • Driving licence or provisional driving licence
  • College photo card
  • NUS photo card.

After the interview

In most cases, you will hear the outcome of your interview within two weeks. You will be able to see the decision on UCAS Track.

I can't attend the interview

You will have a choice of dates in your interview invitation. Therefore we hope that you will be able to make one of the dates.

If you think you might have difficulties attending an interview, please contact our Enquiries team for advice.

Responding to your interview invitation

You must respond to your interview invitation within two weeks of receiving your invitation by email. We will know you have responded if you:

  • register to attend an event;
  • add your details to the ‘I cannot attend these dates’ option;
  • or contact our Events team to discuss options if neither of the above are appropriate.

If you have not responded to your invitation within two weeks, we will assume you no longer wish to pursue your application at Bristol, and your application will be made unsuccessful.
