11.9 Interviews

1. The University does not typically require applicants for taught postgraduate study schemes to be interviewed as part of the admissions process. However, at the selecting department’s discretion, applicants with non-standard qualifications, or mature applicants who do not meet the standard entry requirements for the course applied for, may be invited to attend an interview. In such cases, the relevant academic department will liaise with the applicant regarding the arrangements and nature of the interview.

2. Postgraduate research applicants should be interviewed by the prospective academic department as part of the selection process. Where a face-to-face interview is not possible, departments will endeavour to arrange a Skype/Teams or telephone interview as an alternative.

3. Applicants travelling to Aberystwyth to attend an interview may claim a contribution towards travel expenses incurred in accordance with the current approved criteria and rates. Details of these, in addition to the form to claim reimbursement for postgraduate interview related travel expenses, are available from the Postgraduate Admissions Office.
