    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Alberta in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. Received Skype interview invitation 4 weeks after. Interview lasted around 80 minutes. Interview was mostly technical and about my CV like explain your project in brief, and asked question from it then questions regarding field I choose for PhD. Overall interview experience was good as it was mostly technical questions.
    I advice to talk only on those part of the project/research with which you are most familiar so you can easily answer follow up question. And read little bit on the project/field you have applied.

    Interview

    I expected to be interviewed by one person but then I entered the room and it was a panel of 4 people so a little bit intimidating.
    Went well, but then the questions were very vague.

    • Questions were all easy and straightforward behavioral interview questions. The mock email was based on a fairly straightforward question about admission to the Faculty of Arts. The information was easily found in the provided University calendar, although the interviewer said that the tone of the email would be most important.   Answer Question
