Interviews

If your application is successful, we’ll invite you to an interview either in person or via video call. Our interviews are designed to help us learn more about you and for you to learn more about Launchpad.

The interview complements your application. We require all candidates to interview before receiving an offer. While being invited to an interview is a positive sign it does not guarantee a place on the programme.

Be sure to prepare for your interview.

Interview preparation

After we have reviewed your written application, we may invite you to interview. Our interviews are designed to help us learn more about you and for you to learn more about Launchpad.

During your interview, our staff will ask you questions that enable us to evaluate your candidacy. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions in order to assess whether the Falmouth Launchpad Programme is right for you.

The interview complements your written application with essential insights for our evaluation process. We require all candidates to interview before receiving an offer of admission. While being invited to interview is a positive sign, it does not guarantee your admission. We generally interview two to three applicants per available seat on the programme. Interviews are by invitation only.

We do not provide feedback during, or after, the interview.

What we seek to learn

We conduct a competency-based behavioural interview to gain a deeper understanding of what you have done and how you have done it. We will talk about your past actions, test you on hypothetical situations, and invite you to discuss meaningful professional or community-based experiences you’ve had in the past few years.

How we interview

If we invite you to interview, we will match you with three members of our staff. Interviews may take place remotely or in person. We do not accept requests to interview on campus, and we do not have an on-campus interview programme. The location, date, and mode of your interview will not impact your candidacy. We treat all interview results the same, regardless of where and how they were conducted.
