Interview Preparation for School and University Admissions

Whether it is for school entrance or scholarship application, interview is one of the most important part of the selection process as it differentiates students and offers a great opportunity for students to convince the school why they should be offered a place. Designed and delivered by our expert admissions consultants, our interview courses are specially designed by to prepare applicants for their school/ university interviews. We help students develop core skills such as content, presentation, and interview techniques needed to succeed at interviews. Through a series of interactive mock interviews and speech practices, our team will provide students with detailed and tailored feedback so that students can hone essential techniques to boost confidence and communicate effectively.

Boarding/ International School Interviews

  • Content
    • Common questions such as:
      • Tell me about yourself.
      • Why are you applying to this school?
      • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
      • Which book are you currently reading?
      • What is your favourite subject?
      • What are your hobbies?
      • Tell me about something you read in the news.
    • Improvised responses such as:
      •  What colour best describes yourself?
      • If you can meet with anyone, who would it be and why? 

‘Dedicated and Professional Services
You are truly dedicated and professional! My daughter said she felt the interview went well and she sounds happy after the interview.’ 

University Interviews

  • Content
    • Subject knowledge: led by our Oxbridge-educated consultants, we will work through academically rigorous university level materials to develop students’ knowledge in their intended subject.

  • Delivery
    • Communicate your ideas confidently
    • Develop an understanding of the expectations at interview
    • Improve clarity when speaking in an interview setting

‘Thank you so much for all your guidance and help – I would have not answered as confidently or eloquently as I did in the interview without all the prep sessions in the previous months! I have learnt so much on how to twist questions to my favour and provide insightful responses to seemingly difficult or even absurd prompts, so thanks a lot!’
