    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Reading (Reading, England (UK)) in April 2017.


    Presentation in the morning and panel interview in the afternoon. The 20 minutes presentation is followed by 10 minutes Q&A. There are 5 people on the panel. I was the last one to be interviewed. The panel looks tired.
