I interviewed at University College London

Interview

The interview took place face to face in London. It was hard but fair. With sufficient preparation, it should not be too difficult to pass. There were three interviewers from within the department but not exactly my area of research. The questions were fairly holistic and rather focused on the overall research job than the subject.

  • Tell us about your research (my Master's project). They also asked me to imagine how I would research certain scientific issues.
