    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Imperial College London (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    1st Round: Two interviewers focusing on your academic and professional experiences respectively, as well as your career aspirations. Very friendly and engaged interviewers, but the actual challenges are integrated into the seemingly casual dialogues. Must try to demonstrate your highest level of intellectual aptitudes and positive personality in order to impress the interviewers.
    2nd Round: In-depth technical interview on your niche expertise and growth potential. It's better to prepare the pitch and Q&A well ahead of the actual interview.
