UK Application Experiences

This segment hosts Individual Accounts of their Application Process. These articles mostly cover application processes which require more than just a personal statement. They cover students’ experiences in the form of interviews and admission tests. If you wish to know more about the general UK application process on personal statements, please head over to our UK Application Guidance tab. And if you wish to contribute to this ever-expanding repository, please reach out to

Disclaimer: The CollegeLAH Team is currently revamping this page with new content. Please note that some of the articles here may be outdated because they were written years ago. Since then, there may have been changes in the applicant’s admission tests, interview styles etc. Hence, please use the advice here at your own discretion. We aim to have this page updated with the latest content by 30 October 2020.
