    I have been working at University of Alberta (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good place for graduate studies, I like working here a lot, people are funny.

    Cons

    Edmonton is pretty cold, the city is quite old and noisy. It's not safe to come out in the night.

    Advice to Management

    University needs to tight their funding, cut the useless people, let the real valuable people stay

    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 Questions

    • Explain your master project in brief ? Why you chose that project ? And questions from what I said.   Answer Question
    • Why you want to join this group and University?   Answer Question
    • What knowledge do you have on your chosen PhD field ? Do you have any plan how to pursue it ?   Answer Question
    • If you have decided what you would like to do after PhD ?   Answer Question
