Hi,

I was recently invited to a Phd interview with two of the professors, who would be my supervisors in case of admission. I was asked if I were available Wed or Thursday. I told them that I'm available on the given date and time slot. However, they didn't show up to the interview. I've sent an email to both of them. No replies. I was wondering if any of you have experience something like that. What would be the reasons of such behaviour ? Not even responding to my emails is kinda rude.

Did you go to the location but they never showed up? It seems a bit odd that both professors simultaneously didn't come without warning. Maybe contact their department head(s) and to ask if there were any mitigating circumstances.

Contact the postgraduate admissions department. They will make sure the application process is done properly and arrange an official meeting.

I honestly think you want to try to get to the bottom of why they didn't show up as well if you can.
It could be a sign of bad supervisors.
Hope you didn't have to travel too far.
