Preparing Students for Interview

 

Depending on the course and institution they’re applying for, students may also have to attend an interview as part of the application process. There are some resources listed below to signpost students to.

UCAS have some advice for students about the process for students facing interviews for university admissions:

You may want to help students prepare for interviews by holding mock interviews in school and while this won’t replicate the real thing they can help students practice their answers, allowing them to feel more relaxed and prepared when it comes to their interview. 

University Compare provide some useful guidance for teachers wanting to help with practice interviews:
