    I have an interview today for a college course. I'm 27 and have been out of education for a long time, I can't work out if I am nervous about the actual interview or if I am feeling scared of the possible life change!

    I'm hoping to complete this year and then go on to university!

    Good luck, I went back to college 2 years ago and was terrified about the interview. I shouldnt have been as the tutors were really welcoming and really enjoyed my 2 year course. In fact i might be going back in September.

    Good luck you will love it and just think about what you are going to get out of this course.

    I did the same at 29 - I joined college and did an access course.
    After that, I went on to university as a mature (?) 30 year old.
    You can do it! Just tell them why you want to return to education and it's going to be fine x

    jot a few things down before the interview like the answers to why you want to do the course, what you think you will get out it, why it's relevant to you etc... it will help get your thoughts in order and you'll feel less in a muddle for the interview, good luck!!!!

    Thank you so much for all of your wise words and good wishes!

    I am pleased to say I have an unconditional place on the course and was told by the interviewer that I didn't technically need an interview as the course leader (who I saw on the open day and had a long chat with) had told her I already had a place as he thought I would be an asset to the course! :eek:

    I'm very pleased :)
