Interviews: Please select a 30 minute slot for your interview. The aim of the interview is to get to know your child and understand his or her goals. It will also help us decide which mentor you would be suited to working with. If you have two children that are applying, we recommend that you allow a short break between the two time slots eg. 9.30am-10am as the first time slot and 10.30am-11am as the second time slot.
Information session: We're running two information sessions on the day. The first session will run from 12pm-1pm and this will be repeated at 3pm-4pm. Please try to make arrangements to arrive early or leave later so that you can join us at one of these sessions. During the session we'll discuss more about the programme, you'll also get to meet some of our tutors and mentors and hear from our scholars to find out what they've achieved through the programme.
How to prepare for the day: If you haven't done so already, we'd appreciate it if you could fill in the online application form before the interview. The form should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete www.gtscholars.org/application-form.
What happens after the interview day? We'll go through your application form in more detail and give you further information on fees and any bursaries available to you. Your child will be invited to our scholar welcome day which is on Saturday November 19th. The first session for this intake will be in week beginnning Monday 21st November. Your tuition sessions will take place on Tuesdays or Thursdays depending on the group that your child is assigned to. Please let us know on the interview day if you have a preferred day.
