Dates will be listed here as they become available. All dates are provisional and subject to change should unforeseen circumstances arise.
It is expected that the majority of interviews will be held between 3 and 7 December 2018. However, it is possible that some interviews may be held during the week beginning 26 November or the week beginning 10 December. Final interview dates will not be available until the beginning of November 2018.
If you have applied to Downing College and know that you will be unable to make one or more of the days specified for your subject or during the expected interview period, email the Admissions Officer, Kate Flint as soon as possible. If enough notice is given, it may be possible to avoid scheduling your interviews on those days. It is not possible to make any changes after you have been notified of your interview times.
Please note that interviews can start as early as 8.30am, with the later ones finishing at 6.30pm.
We encourage candidates who will have interviews at other universities, to let us know as soon as possible about any potential clashes with interviews elsewhere.
For updates on when invite or decline to interview letters have been sent for each subject, please follow @DiscoverDowning on Twitter or like the Discover Downing page on Facebook.
The College does not normally offer undergraduate places to candidates who are unavailable for interview and Skype interviews are not usually available.
