History Interview

London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Oxford University in January 2008.

Interview Details – I had two one on one interviews with faculty at the college, neither of which were intimidating. The professors asked a few standard questions - why Oriel, why history. They asked me to analyse a postcard of a suffregette walking through a hostile crowd, something for which I was not prepared. Perhaps brushing up on basic source analysis beforehand would be helpful/
