Interviews without portfolio or audition

A young man and woman holding the ARU prospectus on campus

When you apply for one of our English, media, law, humanities or social sciences courses, the interview will be an important part of your application.

How will the interview process work?

You'll be asked to book a half-hour interview slot of your choice using our applicant portal.

On the day, your family and friends are welcome to accompany you. While you complete your interview, we'll provide them with somewhere to wait with free tea and coffee.

We also offer:

  • A university campus tour leaving reception at 1, 2, 3, and 4pm
  • An accommodation talk at 2pm in LAB 005 (Cambridge only)
  • A parents' talk ('What you need to know about University') at 3pm in LAB 005 (Cambridge only)

We recommend you also attend a University Open Day to find out more.
