After evaluating written applications, we will invite the most promising applicants for a face–to-face interview with a member of our admissions staff. Some people find this a daunting prospect, but it is nothing to worry about; it is simply to give both you and our staff a better chance to assess your suitability for the program.
The campus visit will give you a better understanding of how the College works and the environment you would be studying in. For many applicants, this is an important factor in deciding where they wish to study for their degree. When you visit the campus, you will have the chance to speak with current students and instructors for your course. This will allow you to ask questions which may not have been answered in the course literature, and gain a better understanding of the day-to-day requirements of the program.
While this is designed to be an informal process, we would also recommend you take some time to prepare for the interview and give yourself the best chance of making a good impression. During an admissions interview, we are looking for applicants to demonstrate a number of traits which indicate they will be committed to completing the degree program.
Before entering the interview, and ideally before submitting your written application, you should have a clear understanding of your motivations for pursuing a degree in this subject area. It is also helpful to have thought about why you applied to this specific college and be able to explain your decision. To help you prepare, we have compiled a number of interview questions which we would recommend thinking about in advance.
You may also be asked some hypothetical questions which are designed to assess skills such as problem-solving ability and moral awareness. Such skills are important in this career, where you may be dealing with sensitive or confidential information. There are no wrong answers for these types of questions, but you will be expected to explain how you reached your answer, and your demonstration of logic and critical thinking will be the main criteria on which we will assess your answers to these questions.
