    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Bristol (Bristol, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    You apply online and if you are shortlisted you are invited to attend an interview. In the beginning, they said that I would have to take a test, but they decided against it. A panel of three people leading the project interviewed me. It lasted around half an hour. The questions were very easy.

    I applied online and received an invitation to the interview about a week after the closing date. The interview was informal and the interview panel was very knowledgeable in the field.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Bristol (Bristol, England (UK)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The process began with a thirty minute skills test, the first fifteen were a task priority selection and the following fifteen were an Excel test, which required advanced skills.
    This was followed by a thirty minute panel interview with three members of staff. The common interview questions were asked, "Tell me a time when......"
    It was a positive experience, and, although I was unsuccessful, I recieved some very detailed, helpful feedback and a positive critique.
