Student UCAS Interviewers

Academic Departments

Some University of Sheffield students have the opportunity to take part in their department's admissions process, by acting as a Student UCAS Interviewer. Closer in age and outlook to the candidates, current undergraduates can often empathise with and analyse UCAS applicants in a way that staff would find difficult. A student acting as an interviewer (usually a more senior student) will prepare for the interviews by reading candidates' UCAS personal and supporting statements. S/he will then assist staff on the interview panel itself, and participate in post-interview discussions which determine the offers for places that the department will make.
