    PhD Student Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Liverpool (Liverpool, England).

    Interview

    I had a challenging interview for a PhD I didn't get which was in the same department. The interviewer called me afterward saying that I was very good, but there was an interviewee who had more experience. Kindly they recommended me for the next PhD I applied to.

    The interview process was incredibly relaxed, very much like they (two of my would-be supervisors, a DNA buff prof. and a clinical trials specialist medic) had already decided that I had the PhD. They asked me a few general questions about the subject, some I struggled to answer, this was fine.

    After the interview they showed me around the lab and then shook hands.
