Interviews help schools distinguish which students will thrive in their learning environment. At Top School & Uni our aim is to bring out the best in each student, which means helping students to flourish in their own unique way. This approach helps to convey to an interviewer that a child has several key qualities such as extracurricular interests, an awareness of the world around them and intellectual engagement.
We offer three ways for students who are preparing for school interviews.
Online Mock Interviews
A 1 hour mock interview session with our education consultants, plus a recorded lesson on how your child can practice for their upcoming interviews. The mock interview session offers the chance for students to practise their interview technique with an adult who is used to interviewing students. Your child will be asked a variety of common interview questions, plus some more unusual ones. Our interview sessions are split into two 25 minute interviews, with time in between to discuss any feedback that that our interviewers have to help improve your child’s interview technique. After the mock interview, you will be sent our recorded 45 minute lesson to help your child practice their skills for their upcoming interview.
