Students applying to study at the University of Oxford next year will be attending their interviews at the start of December. Those currently preparing to be interviewed, or those simply curious about the types of questions that come up in these interviews might find it interesting to have a look at the sample questions the university has recently released in order to make the process more transparent. The questions are categorised by subject and also include comments from university tutors regarding the reasoning behind the questions as well as their expectations from the interviewee.
