    Hey guys,

    I have been offered a conditional offer for MSc Petroleum Geoscience and invited to an interview this Friday.

    Just wondering if anyone could share their experience with the one-on-one interview or panel interview? Any hints and tips? I'm kinda nervous what they might ask on the day.

    Be prepared to talk about why you, why the course, why the dept and uni and how this fits with your career plans. Go over your application and CV again and be prepared to talk about how your skills and experience will help with the course. Be prepared to ask some of your own questions as well. Good luck!

    No, I dont think I had the opportunity to meet you. I was the first person to be interviewed by the panel. Hopefully we will meet come October. I am assuming you also managed to receive an conditional offer?
