Haven't applied yet? Join one of our exciting courses!

Your college interview is the next stage of your application process, after you have completed an application form.

From Monday 23 March 2020, interviews are taking place via telephone. This means that we can continue to offer places for courses starting in September 2020 and you can continue to plan your exciting new future!

We want you to enjoy your time studying with us and we need to make sure that you are making the right choice. It’s also an opportunity for you to get to know us better.

Before your interview you might want to find out more information about the course you have applied for and look at future careers using our online Career Coach tool.

Please contact admissions@sunderlandcollege.ac.uk

You will be asked questions such as:

  • Why you are interested in the course you have applied for
  • Why Sunderland College is the right college for you
  • What you have achieved
  • What your strengths and weaknesses are

You can also ask any of your own questions.

During your interview, we will let you know if the course you are applying for can be studied as an apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are a great way to get started in a new career! If you’re ready for work and are committed to studying, while training on-the-job, an apprenticeship could be the right choice for you.

Once you have applied for a course, we will contact you via email with a date and time for your phone interview. We will ring the number you have provided us with.

You don't need to do anything. We will contact you to arrange a phone interview instead.

While interviews are via phone, we may ask you to send us a video so we can assess your ability / suitability for the course you have applied for.

After your interview you will be given a conditional offer for the course you have applied for. If we don’t think the course is right for you, we will talk you through your study options and next step.
