    Master of Forensic Science Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of Amsterdam (Manchester, England) in April 2016.

    Interview

    A skype interview that lasted about half an hour. I did a 5-minute presentation, then they gave me a case and asked me what a forensic scientist would do. This was the difficult part but they did give me hints and agreed I tended to make the situation look overcomplicated. Then there were questions about the motivation to do a masters degree in forensics and why I chose them. It is good to let them know that you "got it" and already know stuff about the field and, most importantly, are willing to learn a lot more. They also asked me about my experience with forensics.
