Interviews are an important part of the application process, and we interview everyone with a realistic chance of being offered a place.
At Trinity Hall, applicants are usually given two interviews, each with two interviewers, so they are seen by four people in total. The interviews are all academic in nature. The questions asked will range from topics that you have already covered at school to new material that you have not seen before. The interviews are designed to get you thinking and discussing and, believe it or not, can actually be quite interesting!
The University has put together the video below showing some interviews in progress. Hopefully this will take some of the mystery out of it!
Financial support for interview travel costs
To enable applicants to come to interview in Cambridge, the Colleges are pleased to provide support for travel costs to students who are in local authority care and/or are currently in receipt of free school meals and who attend a UK maintained sector school/college. Public transport travel costs between £20 and £80 will be reimbursed, and the Colleges will contact eligible applicants directly with further information when they’re invited to interview.
