One-to-One Advice and Guidance Sessions and Interviews.

For applicants in category 1 this session is an opportunity to find out more about the college and the courses available. Students will be asked to bring with them evidence of their current academic progress. This will ensure that appropriate advice and guidance can be given about courses which match the applicant’s academic ability and career plans.

For applicants in category 2 this interview is an opportunity to discuss courses available and their application in general. This interview will be used together with their application form and school reference to decide whether the student will be offered a place.

After all interviews have taken place students will receive an email informing them of the outcome. Our offer of a place is not subject to certain GCSE results however each subject has individual entry criteria. Please check our Subject Entry Criteria.
