    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Open University (Milton Keynes, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Efficient, quick and very warm and welcoming. Great communication from application being submitted through to interview and feedback. Everyone I spoke to was very supportive and helpful whenever I had a question. I also felt at ease during the interview.
