Is a college interview different from any other interview? In short, yes. It is more of a discussion than an interrogation. You need to make sure the course is right for you and they need to make sure you are right for the course. It's slightly less formal than a job interview, but this is great practice for the real thing, so you need to impress.
HOW CAN YOU PREPARE?
Prepare a question, is there anything you want to know about the course? The canteen? The college day? Enrichment programmes? Show your enthusiasm for college life by asking a question about it.
Rehearse any potential question you might get asked. Common questions for college interviews will include:
Be on time. Set off in plenty of time, to arrive at least 10 minutes before the interview time. This gives you time before the interview to relax, gather your thoughts and gives you a little extra time for any unforeseen minor delays on the way.
Dress smart - you want to feel good and make a good impression.
At the Interview
Be yourself. You have worked hard to get this to this stage. Relax and good luck!
