Attend a pre-enrolment interview

Once we have received your application we will invite you to a pre-enrolment interview, which will take place at the college or at your school. During the interview, you can talk over your career plans and course choices with a teacher from one of your chosen subjects. If you’re not sure about what courses to study, we can advise you on a suitable programme. You can also find out more about college events, travel advice, course payments and financial support during the interview.
