5. Be prepared for your interviews
Don’t panic! Many universities require applicants to interview with admissions staff or faculty members as part of the application process but this is nothing to worry about. It is an opportunity for you to meet your teachers, to showcase yourself, and for them to learn more about you. At RCL we require students to pass an Initial Consultation and an Academic Interview so spend some time reviewing your application, research your chosen course and subject to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day. These interviews aren’t anything to worry about but they are important parts of the process and opportunities to expand on your personal statement and demonstrate that you are a committed individual.
6. Document checklist
It’s important to be certain you have the correct documents needed to enrol and most importantly, that they are current and valid documents.

If applying via Work Experience route, you will need to submit your CV and reference from your employer.

If you’re planning on studying in person, why not spend some time coming to an open day or visiting the local area to orientate yourself. Work out your transport and what is within walking distance. Where is good to go for coffee, where’s he local library, or gym.
