Step 2. Advice and Guidance Meeting

Following your application, you will be invited to an Advice and Guidance meeting to chat with us about your chosen Study Programme.

The purpose of the appointment is for you to receive more information, so you feel confident in your course choices.

It is not a selection interview, and you can dress informally and enjoy this opportunity to find out more about Huish. 

If you attend one of our local feeder schools the appointment will take place at your school on a date arranged with your school. 

If we are not booked in to visit your school, you will receive an invite to an appointment on our campus. 

For applicants living at a considerable distance virtual/telephone appointments can be arranged.

At the appointment you will receive your offer of a place and we will confirm the entry requirements for your courses.
