Here in the Admissions Team, we’re still working and we’ll be contacting you before your interview to:
Make sure you are well and happy to go ahead with your interview – don’t worry if you’re not we can rearrange for another date and time when you’re feeling better
Check if you have a space at home for the interview to take place in – it will need to be a quiet space where you can talk to the interviewer and you may need enough room to perform if you are doing a music interview via video. We know that some households will be self-isolating (and some can be very busy places anyway) and you may not have enough space – but that’s fine we can book you in again if we need to.
Ask you how you would like the interview to take place – things to consider are:
- Do you have a device with a web camera?
- Do you have a Gmail account?
- Do you have a Skype account?
- What is your phone reception like at home?
- How reliable is your internet connection?
By answering these questions we’ll be able to decide what the best option is for the interview. We’d ask you to be ready with your phone or device at least 5 minutes before your interview is due to take place, so that we can try to make sure that everything runs to time. If you have any issues regarding your interview, please contact the Admissions Team straight away on 0800 281842, or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having phone problems.
If your interview takes place by phone, you will probably need to do an audition, demonstration or show us a portfolio at a later date, if you are given a conditional offer.
Although we expect to go back to face-to-face interviews later in the year, we can’t predict when this will be right now. The new interview arrangements will be in place until further notice, we’ll let you know straight away when they change.
If you have any questions, please just get in touch. We know this is a stressful time for everyone, and we don’t want your interview to add even more stress. If you do want to rearrange for any reason at all, we’ll be happy to do that. Just contact us on 0800 281842 or email@example.com and we’ll sort it out for you.
