If you're applying for certain courses at ARU, we may invite you to come in for an interview. Your interview day is a great opportunity to explore our campuses and facilities, and really get to know us.
On this page, you'll find some handy tips on how to get the most out of your day.
If you’re invited for an interview, we’ll send you an email inviting you to login to our Applicant Portal. Here, you’ll be able to:
We recommend getting any documents or ID together beforehand, so you’re ready to go on the morning of your interview.
We’d also suggest planning your journey to campus. You’ll find directions to Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough on our website, along with walking maps and details of public transport.
Unfortunately, we don’t offer car parking on campus; however, both Cambridge and Chelmsford have Park & Ride services which will drop you off at the door.
When we interview you, we’re looking to see if you’re the right candidate for the course – the person that you described in your personal statement. We’re also keen to see that you can cope well in different situations.
But your interview day is a two-way experience, so make sure you’re getting everything you want out of the day, too.
Don't worry. The purpose of interviews is to find out more about you, your knowledge and values, and why you're interested in a particular career path. It's also a chance for you to ask us questions and find out more about ARU.
We look forward to meeting you!
