Step 4: Your Interview/Information Session
Interviews/information sessions generally start in January. We always like to stress that an interview/information session is not a test and does not put you under any obligation to accept a place. Even if you are considering other colleges or staying on at your school, we would still like to see you.
On the day of the interview/information session, you should report to Reception at the correct campus, where you will be met by the course tutor. At the interview/information session, you will complete an initial assessment, we will give you more information about the course and you will have the chance to ask questions about this and also general College activities and facilities. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions. This session is your opportunity to find out more about Northbrook and if it is right for you. Parents, guardians and carers are welcome to accompany you to interview.
Step 5: Your Offer of a Place
If we can offer you a place this will be confirmed to you in writing within two weeks of your interview/information session date.
Step 6: Accepting Your Place
Send back the acceptance slip to our Freepost address and we will contact you in due course to advise the date and time of your enrolment session.
Step 7: Enrolment
We will, at the appropriate time, send you information by post regarding your enrolment, together with any other relevant information.
