Interviews give us the chance to meet you, and you the chance to see if our University is a good fit.

Whether you're invited to an interview depends on the subject. Typically, all our culture and education courses require interviews. If you're invited to interview, it means we are impressed with your application so far. But it's not just about us finding out about you; it's also a great opportunity for you to try our University on for size.

Having an idea of what to expect can help you to shine on the day. That's why we've laid out this section. Have a browse to explore interview structure for specific courses so that you're fully prepared on the day. Exploring this section should also help you start to plan the kinds of questions you want to ask us, too.
