All applicants will be interviewed to confirm their grasp of English language and build a picture of their suitability for admission. Where possible applicants will be grouped into cohorts and scheduled for interviews with the director(s) when they travel to their home country. Some interviews may be carried out online via Skype. Previous qualifications will be reviewed as well as work experience where required. The applicant's reason for taking their course will be taken into account as well as how the course fits into the applicant's future career goals. It is important that the applicant is able to communicate this at the interview.
You will need to provide evidence that you have the funds to pay for your course and maintenance. This could take the form of current or savings account passbooks or statements.

You also need to be reminded of the 28 -1 -28 rule. This means that your funds must have been in your account for 28 days before you obtain the statement and you need to use this statement with your application within 28 days of obtaining it. Applicants must supply the college with a copy of the bank evidence to be used for their application before a CAS will be generated.
