Once you have applied, we will write to you inviting you to attend an informal interview at the college with the teaching staff. The interview is designed to help ensure we get you on the right course to meet your career and learning objectives. Therefore please select ‘Evening Visit to College’ below. However, if you are an adult learner, and attending an evening interview is difficult, there is the option to have your interview over the phone. If you require this option, please select the ‘Telephone Interview’ option below. A lecturer will then contact you between Monday & Thursday. Please note: The interview process does NOT apply to full cost short courses and distance learning courses. TELEPHONE INTERVIEWS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADULT LEARNERS (AGE 18+) ONLY. During the Summer holiday period, telephone interviews are unfortunately not available due to staff not being on-site. Adults, please select whether you'd prefer an in-college interview, or telephone interview, using the dropdown box below.
