After a lot of applications, I've finally got a decent interview. I work in a university anyway, so my boss and department are going to help with my prep, but can anyone remember how theirs went, or specific questions/advice on prep?
I've spoken to the supervisor by phone already, and we seem to get along reasonably well. And I'm generally quite good at interviews and public speaking too.
And help would be deeply appreciated.
PS: Since when did this place become such a spam-haven? I saw half a dozen topics promising false passports on the first page alone.
Hi Solo, this link might be helpful:
hi solo congratulations on getting a phd interview! I am sure you will certainly shine at it :-)
for me, the most important questions were:
1. Why do you want to do a phd?
2. Why are u interested in this project?
3. What makes u stand out from other candidates?
best of luck--and post back when you get it the phd offer
If you haven't applied for a specific advertised PhD project, but developed your own proposal, it also might be useful to think in terms of what is original and new about it, and how it will contribute to the knowledge in your respective field.
And, good luck, of course!
Thanks Aelys, I've been applying to specific projects, I don't really want to do my own proposal just yet.
Can anyone suggest specific questions I can ask them myself? I have a habit of researching my own queries beforehand, thus being left with little to ask during the interview itself.
