Interview Preparation

In preparation for your College interview, we would like you to consider your next steps and the enrichment programme at Wyke.

Next Steps

During your interview, we will discuss what you think your next steps after Wyke may be, so that we can help you make the best decision about which courses to study with us. Are you considering university (including Oxbridge) or do you want to progress onto an Advanced Apprenticeship? Do you have employment as your main option or are you looking to take a gap year? Are you interested in studying aboard? Is the Armed Forces/Public Services your preferred post-Wyke route?

To make sure you are taking the right course combination, we will talk to you about your career ambitions. Don't worry if you don't know exactly what career you would like to pursue, this will develop during your time at Wyke, but it would good to indicate your areas of interest.

If you are firmly focused on a specific profession then we will guide you to selecting the appropriate study programme. For example, if you are considering a career in Architecture then we would discuss the need for Mathematics or Physics alongside a visually creative subject like Fine Art or Graphics. If you would like to study a degree in Law, then we would suggest subjects like History, English Literature, Politics, Sociology, Criminology or Psychology. To become a Sport Journalist, we would discuss subjects like English Language, PE, or Media Studies.

Enrichment

Our enrichment opportunities are split into three categories; Academic, Whole College and Clubs and Societies. Some of the options listed below  are placed on your timetable. For example, if you would like to play for one of our sports teams, we would timetable you for training on a Monday and for playing competitive matches on a Wednesday.

If you think there's an enrichment we should be offering, or you would like to get involved with, then mention it at your interview and we can look to start that activity with your help.
