The Cambridge Colleges will select candidates for interview from amongst applicants to that College.

Applicants called for interview in Law can typically expect one or two separate interviews which are usually held in early December.

No prior knowledge of law will be required for the interview, but candidates may be asked to discuss legal materials provided to them at the interview. However, each College makes its own arrangements for interviewing applicants and there is no single model of interview.

More information about the interview process at Cambridge is available on the University website.

Being able to talk to academics about different issues was an enjoyable and positive experience
