Your interview experience is an exciting opportunity for you to demonstrate your passion for the course to which you are applying, and for us to get to know you, your aspirations, and your expectations.

The recruitment and selection process

All potential students meeting the academic entry requirements will be interviewed to ensure that they have the necessary motivation and potential required to practice in the field of career guidance and coaching. The interview will be conducted by the programme admissions team and applicants will be asked to discuss their interests in careers education and coaching, their experiences in the field and their career aspirations. Interviews will be virtual and arranged to suit both parties using Microsoft Teams.
