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 will start in January and will go on until at least the end of 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 College Services Fee; this provides additional resources for students while they are at the college.
