Thank you for your application to study BA (Hons) Youth Work at The University of East London, and congratulations on being invited to take part in an interview.

Your interview will last a maximum of 30 minutes and will be conducted over the phone.  You will be contacted by a course tutor, and the interview is to assess:

  • Your motivation to study Youth Work
  • Your readiness to study at University
  • Your Youth Work experience

You will also have an opportunity to ask any questions that you have about the course, and The University of East London.

The interview will be relatively informal and conversational. Please be aware however that this is a professionally validated course that requires you to evidence a minimum of 100 hours of youth and community work experience. This experience does not have to be in a paid capacity or contracted, but nonetheless should demonstrate meaningful interactions with the secondary school age group (or and young people with disabilities).

We aim to communicate the outcome of your interview within 3 working days.
