I worked at Imperial College London full-time
Brilliant supervision and superb facilities !
People (other PhDs ) are not always engaging to discuss about their research
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Imperial College London (London, England) in January 2018.
We were given a scientific paper 1 week before the interview date. About 60 candidates were invited to the interview day and they had 6 panels of 3+ supervisors interviewing candidates individually throughout the day. They asked a couple of questions about us/why we wanted to do a PhD etc and then onto details about the paper. In the afternoon there was a poster session of the 8 projects available where you got to speak to the supervisors and then a 'Pizza party' with current PhD students. During this time you had to give a preference list of 3 PIs/projects and that evening you received an email about whether you were through to have 1:1 interviews with your selected supervisors the next day.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
