    Hi, first time posting here but I've been lurking about for a year now. I applied back in March for the MA in applied psychology of music program and after reviewing my application and senior research project, they've invited me to do an interview. I've never done an interview before for grad school so I was wondering if anyone has some advice on sort of what to expect?

    Some bg on me: I graduated this month with my Bachelor of Arts in Music. I'm a US student so I'd be studying internationally at Leeds and I was accepted into the University of Sheffield and Goldsmiths for similar programs but Leeds is my top choice, hence why I'm quite nervous!

    They might ask you what you studied at undergraduate level, what areas of music you are most interested in, what you intend to write your dissertation about and why you have chosen the university. Just think of it like a job interview, but slightly more informal.
