I have an interview coming up for my Masters with Goldsmiths university. Had to prepare a five minute presentation on research i conducted. Did anyone have an interview already? Crazy anxiety on the questions they might ask.

Congrats on being done with the interview... I absolutely dreaded it and was happy to be done with it. Im currently going to be getting an Msc in Forensic Psychology as well. So i guess we literally had the same interview lol. It didn't take them long to offer me a place. I interviewed early morning USA time which was lik 6pm UK time, and got accepted at like 3 am ...well in UK time it was probably the next morning there. So you shouldn't have to wait for a decision for too long which is good I hate waiting.

Yeah same course woop. Yeah my nerves were crazy too I'm sure I talked way too fast during my interview to be honest mainly the presentation portion. They also seemed rather lack luster during mine it made me even more nervous. I literally said something I thought was funny and laughed they were like ".... ummm okay, so anyway" and continued asking questions. I was just like welp I'm not getting in lmfao. I was pretty upset to say the least. But somehow it worked out, so don't let the unenthusiastic tones fool you. And 🤞hoping you will be joining me! 🤞

Yes exactly!!!! And mine started with 'our interview was schedules for 2.30 not 4pm' and I had to tell them that i changed the time and communicated with someone and had it confirmed....and they just said 'well I wasn't informed.....anyway okay lets begin.' Horrible, and yeah didn't know how I did, no emotion behind the voice or any 'that was interesting'.....Fingers crossed though

Hey! Since it was a phone interview I kept some notes in front of me laid out just in case you get stuck. I had given a summary of my research and findings, prepare an answer to why you chose this course and any experience, and maybe why this u oversight too? I didn't really have a nice person on the phone as she didn't give any indication on whether it's interesting or not. Good luck though, you'll do fine
