Undergraduate Study

 

We base admissions decisions on academic criteria - your ability and your potential. Interviews help us to assess this along with all the other information you provide.

We invite the majority of applicants to attend an interview. In previous years, this has been around 75 per cent of Home applicants. Not everyone interviewed will be offered a place but everyone who is made an offer will have been interviewed.

In 2022-23, most shortlisted applicants will be interviewed virtually. Interviews usually take place in December.

UK-based applicants to Trinity College will be interviewed in-person. Interviews for their non-UK based applicants will remain online. Please contact the College with any queries. 

Online or in-person, the aims and content of your interview will be the same. For more information, please see online interviews

Please note that sharing or recording interviews or admissions assessments questions is strictly prohibited and could inadvertently disadvantage your own application.

English language requirements

A good standard of spoken English is expected at interview so you can express and describe your ideas and thoughts. If English isn't your first language, please check our English language requirements.

Commercial services

We're aware of private companies who offer 'tutoring' on our interviews and admissions assessments for a fee. We do not support or encourage any of these enterprises. The advice they provide cannot be verified and they do not have access to any information that's not freely available from us via this website and other University sources.
