Getting ready for your college interview

Like most colleges and sixth forms, an interview is an important part of our application process.

We want to get to know you better! You will get the opportunity to speak with one of our friendly tutors, and share why you want to study at New College Durham.

We are currently holding interviews via telephone – you will receive information about your allocated slot via text and can keep track of your applications and interviews by logging in to your account.


Please let our Admissions team know if you need to rearrange your slot – you can reach them via Live Chat or email:
