INFORMATION, ADVICE & GUIDANCE INTERVIEW
You will then be invited in to ESC for an information and advice session where we discuss every aspect of the course you have chosen. This is an important opportunity for you to make sure that this is the right course for you and for us to fully explain the details and requirements of your course.
If you have a successful interview you will be offered a conditional place which will be confirmed at enrolment when you provide your exam results.
Adult students with appropriate qualifications are usually offered unconditional places.
You will be invited to come and enrol at the College in the summer. If you didn't do as well as you hoped in your school exams - don't panic, we will work to offer you a more appropriate course, often leading to your first choice at a later date. Adult students with appropriate qualifications are usually offered unconditional places.
