I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at King's College London (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.
Online application form, then invited to an interview. The interview was with a panel of three people, quite informal, one interviewer was slumped in a chair. The scenario written test at the end was disorganised, two questions posed both of which were different on the printed sheet and on the online system.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at King's College London in March 2010.
I would have to say it was an alright interview, but a little too intense for a research job. It consisted of a 30 minute computer competency test in which someone was there in the room timing you and watching you as you completed tasks from this paper that were very confusing. Then, I had to take another test in front of the interview panel directly after showing my phone competency skills to deal with participants. A major pain for the fact that it was research related. I think I was thrown off for the rest of the interview because of all the tests. I think I did well but I didn't get the job after all. I already had a job for the University of London and the interview was quick and painless. This interview was just more intense than it needed to be. My advice is to NOT apply for the Institute of Psychiatry unless you want some people who are too serious about their jobs.
- Essentially I had to describe what I would do EN VIVO (part of the telephone test/question) about what I would do if a participant responded negatively to a question or did not what to do it and how would you persuade them without pressure. Answer Question
