    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Surrey (Guildford, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied, got an interview within a week. The admissions office is a big open place with desks aligned in a classroom style - in rows, which reminded me a bit of a call centre.

    The interview took about 30 minutes (as scheduled) with a panel of 3. The room was a bit small and I could hear someone's phone ringing really loud in an office next door during my interview, which was a bit disturbing.

    The interview itself was not difficult, nor easy. At the end of the interview I was asked if I want to ask something. I asked the manager who interviewed me a question on their department and recruitment events their held etc. Although she answered my questions, her answers were very vague and insufficient given her managerial position in this department.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't remember the exact questions now, but they asked me questions (competency/skill based type) regarding my teamwork, flexibility, customer service skills, managing workload etc. Nothing too difficult.   Answer Question
