All our interviews this year will be held online. Find out what you need to prepare and get tips and advice.
If your application has been successful, you'll be invited to an interview through the Applicant Portal.
These sessions offer us a chance to get to know you, see your work and find out about your interests. They also give you the opportunity to get to know us, find out more about the course, get a sense of what it's really like to study at Falmouth and meet staff and students from your department.
For your interview you'll be asked to submit a portfolio of your work, or a pitch, performance or portfolio in response to one of our Falmouth Challenges. To find out what you'll need to submit, check your interview invitation in the Applicant Portal or go to the webpage for your course and see the How to apply section.
Advice for your online interview
What platform will I need to use?
We're holding our interviews via Microsoft Teams. If you don't already have Teams, you can download it here. We'll send you a meeting invite, which will include a link to the Teams meeting. All you'll need to do is click 'Join Microsoft Teams Meeting' in your email and you'll be directed to the app. Here's a handy guide to meetings in Teams.
What should I do to prepare?
Make sure you read the interview information page for your course(s). You can find a direct link in your interview invitation on the Applicant Portal, this will show you what you need to do to prepare and also provide guidance for your portfolio.
If you need to send a portfolio link or a link to a performance, check the link works and doesn't require any logins to access it beforehand.
You should also check that you are able to connect at least an hour before your interview. We reccommend doing a test with someone if you can.
What questions will I be asked?
We'll ask you why you want to study your course, what you feel you'll bring to the university and what your ambitions are for growth and the future.
What should I wear?
Wear something that's comfortable and looks like you. We're interested in who you are and what you will bring to the course. Don't let your outfit worry you.
What should I have?
You may need to share a link to a performance or portfolio. You should be prepared to discuss your pitch, portfolio or performance with your interviewers. You might want to have a pen and some paper to make notes and it's a good idea to have a glass of water to hand.
How long will it be?
Online interviews are around 30 minutes.
