Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at University of East Anglia.

Interview

I sent my CV and personal statement to UEA. I received a letter asking me to attend an interview on campus. As it was late notice and flights were quite expensive on the required dates I asked if it would be possible to attend the following week. They offered to do the interview via Skype. I was informed I got the position shortly afterwards

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of East Anglia (Norwich, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Like a standard PhD interview. The panel consisted of my future supervisor and secondary tutor, together with the associate dean. I was not required to prepare a presentation but had one made, just in case. Travel costs were not reimbursed, however.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at University of East Anglia.

    Interview

    relaxed and friendly, you tend to have already chosen your supervisory team before you go to interview so you are likely to have already spoken with them and know about their research interests. An opportunity to talk more in depth about your research plans and get to know each other.
