    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to prepare for a university interview?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Know why you want to study the subject

    Know why you want to go to that particular university.

    Have you read any literature about key researchers in your chosen field.

    Are there any well known alumni who followed your course at this university.

    If you know who is going to interview you - google them and find out some key information about their area of research.

    Have you read any good books about your chosen field - if you haven't don't mention them because if you get asked you will be in the poo.

    Smile, look smart, look interviewers in the eye. Be confident - you have an interview - not everyone gets one.
