    Industrial Design & Technology Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Loughborough University (Loughborough, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed yet rather formal. Many students were dressed in smart casual and some in suits (I would say make yourself formal enough but add a personal twist for uniqueness). All the students (Applicants) were moved to a large open lecture hall where tables and chairs were presented. We each had a sticker with a number ID and we were all called out individually throughout the day to have the interview take place. The interviewer (Design School Lecturer) would then talk with us on a one to one basis about our portfolios. The portfolio discussion is led by both the student and lecturer (I would advise the student to take the initiative in presenting his/her work, this shows passion and interest). My portfolio consisted of a range of skills and works which shows the breadth and depth of my interest in Design. The lecturer was not afraid of criticising my work rather harshly but I believe it was to see how you respond to criticism and your reasoning.
