    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Essex (Colchester, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through a very length application form. Was then asked to do a presentation and then an interview in front of a panel of 3 people. Whole process was quite unorganised. The original documents they sent for the presentation did not work and I had to call the university to resend them. After the interview they said they would let me know by the end of the week, which they didn't. I then had to call them the following week to ask for the outcome.
