    PhD Candidate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Singapore (Singapore)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview is efficient and concise. Two faculty professors interviewed me, and the questions were generic. FYP is something important to them as that is the main research experience that a undergraduate student may have. Academic result is also important, and you need to prepare some explanation if you did not perform so well on certain subject.

    It was easy. Just a short introduction about myself. Why I am interested in doing research. What I was doing after graduation. The professor was an enthusiastic and friendly person. For most of the time, the professor was sharing about what the project is about and trying to get me interested.
