Youth and Community Work BA (Hons)

See specifics to your interview

Format Assessment More information


Applicants are asked to arrive by 10.00am  followed by a welcome talk about various facets of the university and a tour of the campus.

The interview in the afternoon will be in three parts:

  • Short introduction to the course by the Head of Programme.
  • A group work activity with a member of academic staff from the programme.  This is designed to be fun, indoor activity and you do not need to prepare for this or bring any special clothing.  It will include talking and discussing a contemporary youth issue with other students and is not a written activity or a test of everything you know about young people!  This is included as Youth and Community Workers often work with groups of people and because of this, a core part of the teaching and learning on the BA (Hons) Youth and Community Work takes place within a group context. We are looking for people who are willing to participate, who can work collaboratively, who are able to reflect on issues and are open to considering other peoples points of view or new ideas.  
  • Individual interview with the Head of Programme or a Senior Lecturer from the course, plus a representative from the wider programme partnership.
