    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oxford Brookes University.

    Interview

    Applied online for a PhD studentship, got an invite to a Skype interview soon after. Two interviewers and both were very nice. They asked questions about my previous research experience and about the science and techniques underlying the proposed PhD project. Afterwards they explained the structure of the course and explained things like that I'd have to committ a certain amount of time each week to teaching.
