    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Virginia.

    Interview

    There is no formal job interview involved, only graduate admissions documents to submit. That said, international students may be assessed on their level of English. For those whose level is not considered sufficient, they are asked to complete mandatory ESL courses upon enrollment.
