When will I be called for an Interview?

It can take some time to be called for an interview so please be patient. Interviews for different courses take place on different dates so don't be concerned if others are called for interview before you.

I received a date for my interview but I cannot make it that day can I reschedule?

If you cannot attend the interview on the date specified please contact us as soon as possible so we can attempt to reschedule the interview.

What should I bring to my interview?


You will be told on your interview letter what you need to bring to the interview, it is advisable that you bring a short C.V and a reference letter from a teacher or employer.

If you have any examples of your work for a course like art or graphic design it would be a great way to showcase your work.
