    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Leicester (Leicester, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    The potential supervisors and staff from another department carry out the interview. Really relaxed will give you feedback along the way. Ask about a paper that I have read recently that interest me.
