    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oxford Brookes University.

    Interview

    Applied online for a PhD studentship, got an invite to a Skype interview soon after. Two interviewers and both were very nice. They asked questions about my previous research experience and about the science and techniques underlying the proposed PhD project. Afterwards they explained the structure of the course and explained things like that I'd have to committ a certain amount of time each week to teaching.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oxford Brookes University (Oxford, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Q and A with Execs and Management. No quiz or skills test just a lot of competency based questions that related to the job: asked about conflicting priorities, time management, project management and supporting the team. To assure success I talked about different things I would like to implement within the department to ensure efficiency, but I was lucky to have been temping with them previously.

    Applied online, sent interview details a week later. Loads of notice of interview. Was met by friendly member of staff and had a short skills test before being brought to the interview itself. Panel of 3, but were very disinterested. No effort to shake hands etc before interview. Felt they were just going through the motions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oxford Brookes University (Oxford, England (UK)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Generally smooth and fair. 10 minute presentation followed by interview. Panel of 3, including HR person. Questions were relevant and straightforward. No silly questions. I think they may have asked if I had any weaknesses, but not sure - I have a terrible memory for things like this (one of my major weaknesses, I'm afraid). Got a phone call from HR a couple of days later offering the job. Standard contract came though post. Relocation expenses of £5k paid for.
