Hi Lisa, I just completed your survey and just wanted to say it didn't even take 10 minutes to complete! I was a little put off by the fact that it might take 15 minutes and wanted to let you know that it might be worth re-posting to let people know it is not very long. Good luck with your research (up)
It was very scary! There were four people - three of whom will be my supervisors because it multi-discipline. I had to give a 10 minute presentation and then answer questions relating to the project for 30 minutes. I thought it went really badly - my answers were all really short! They asked me what training I thought I would need and I said that I needed to learn more about statistics and one of them said they could help me improve my presentation skills which was a bit off-putting! But I got offered the position and I start in October. I am switching between being really excited and completely terrified about what I am letting myself in for!
I applied for a competitively funded Phd in January. The deadline was 28th January and I was told that the candidates for all the projects needed to be considered. I got an email on 9th February with my invitation to interview so I don’t think you should start to worry yet. Maybe they have to make a decision as to which projects to interview for rather than a final decision by 15th April. My interview didn’t take place until 3rd March. Good luck :-)
