    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Cambridge (Japan, MO) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed by 2 staffs in 2 sections each lasted about 20 minutes via Skype. Very fast-paced about 30 basic questions during undergrad. Friendly regardless, was asked different topics when unable to answer.
