Top 10 Interview Tips

  • Number 1

    Be prepared

    It might be the scout motto, but it also applies to interview situations too. Look carefully through any material that’s sent to you before the interview, so you know what to expect when you arrive.

  • Number 2

    Plan your journey

    Make sure you know where you are going, how you are travelling, and how long it will take. Try to arrive at least 15 minutes early and have our contact details handy in case you need to get in touch.

  • Number 3

    Bring what you need

    Don’t forget to bring any documents you might need, including ID, a passport sized photo, certificates or a portfolio.

  • Number 4

    Do your homework

    Research your course and our University. Read the syllabus and think about what in particular interests you. Read around the subject you’re applying for – in newspaper articles, the internet, or professional publications. We don’t expect you to be an expert (yet!), but we do want to see your enthusiasm.

  • Number 5

    Get personal

    Read over your personal statement. It’s likely that we’ll ask you questions about this in your interview, so review what you have said and make sure you’re prepared to answer questions about it.

  • Number 6

    Practice makes perfect!

    Ask a teacher or careers adviser to give you a mock interview. For extra practice, get a friend or someone you trust to ask you more difficult interview questions.

  • Number 7

    Be yourself…

    We want to know what makes you tick. Tell us why you’re passionate about your subject and why you want to study at the University of Salford. Remember, we want to hear from you – so don’t swallow a thesaurus, put it in your own words.

  • Number 8

    …but also your best self

    Be relaxed but stay professional. Think about what you’re wearing and what it says about you. For professional courses, smart attire is expected.

  • Number 9

    Ask Us Anything

    Listen carefully to what the interviewer is saying and don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s a good idea to come prepared with a list of questions to ask about your course and the University.

  • Number 10

    Contact us

    If you need to speak to us before your interview or on the day, call 0161 295 4545 or tweet us @SalfordUni
