Certain postgraduate courses may require you to attend an interview with academic staff. Some course tutors interview all applicants while others ask candidates to attend if they feel their application form did not provide enough information to make a decision.
Interviews may also form part of a portfolio or audition-based assessment, or for courses where we wish to consider your previous career or life experiences as well as formal qualifications.
At interview, you will be asked questions about the subject you are applying for, but it is also a chance to discuss your work experience and other interests. We're looking for evidence of real interest in your chosen subject and we want to be certain that you have the ability and enthusiasm to complete the course successfully.
Postgraduate courses which always involve interviews include architecture, psychology and fine art. Check the course entry requirements carefully to see if an interview is needed.
