    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Nottingham (Nottingham, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Application online. Quite a lot of repition in the process. Then invited to an interview in front of a panel of six people for a 35mins interview! The panel then decided who they wanted that same day. They interviewed four candidates. I was very surprised they did the interviews in such a short time for what was seemingly a very important role to them.
