Several prospective students attend an Open Day prior to arranging a formal course interview. It is often possible to schedule an interview as part of an Open Day and most applicants go direct to course interview bypassing Open Days. If you are unable to attend an Open Day you can arrange an interview to discuss your course options. Either way please call: +44(0)118 979 8686 or email: to schedule a time for an interview.
