Interviews and Offers

After receiving your application, we will invite you to one of our informal interview sessions to find out more about you, discuss your plans, your reasons for choosing your programme of study and any alternatives which should be considered. These interviews generally take place in February and March. We will send you the outcome of the interview within 4 working weeks of the interview. Offers are almost always conditional on your achieving the required grades. When we send your offer, we will ask you to pay a book deposit and also to make a voluntary contribution towards the college fund. This provides additional resources for students while they are at the college.
