Are you using a landline or mobile phone...poor reception may affect the call quality. Let them call you on a landline if possible. Also, ensure that you in a quiet space, as this will help you stay focused and minimize interruptions.
Is it for a MSc or PhD? the line questioning will differ, especially if its for a taught MSc's!
Know your CV, personal statement and u/g project inside-out! now why you want to study neuroscience and read up on what's currently going on in the field of neuroscience. Why do you want to study this at Imperial? Read up about the department, the researchers and their work, so you have an idea of what they do.
And then general questions like where do you see yourself in the future and what you'd like to be involved in (obviously in the field of neuroscience).
Have a few questions ready for the interviewer.
Obviously its not the same as a face-to-face interview, but you have to prepare for it just the same. Try and speak clearly (don't whisper or shout) and speak at the reasonable pace (don't ramble or speak too fast). If you don't understand the question (or can't hear properly), ask for it to be repeated...and please do relax, stressing won't help.
Good luck with it...I'm sure you'll do just fine.
