    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted early to request to change my time slot for my interview, as a person drop out of the process.

    Agreed, I turned up early for the interview. I was taken into the room to meet a panel of 3 people.

    The panel were friendly enough. There was a clock against a wall behind wall for the panel to observe.

    The panel then described the interview, 7 questions in 20 minutes to allow me to workout the time for each question. I was two minutes over the 20minutes.

    When answering the questions, it didn't appear to be any note taking

    Feedback:

    role was given to internal candidate - As internal candidate are difficult to beat at interview!

    Overall experience

    Location: Easy to find
