    Hey guys,

    I have an university interview coming up in February for primary education . I realize that it's always good to ask the interviewers a few questions at the end. However, I can't think of any questions that are worth asking! Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    What do you mean primary education? Are you going for a job in that field or attending it, I am confused.

    If this is on about a uni course, my mum is on an interview panel for a similar course...
    I asked her what questions she would be impressed by, and she said “do you have opportunities look into research on (current educational thinking)” so asking about growth mindset etc. Find an area of research you like and enquire if it’s on the course, or if you get the opportunity to study it yourself.
    Ask if different methods of teaching the curriculum are covered etc.

    Sorry, I should've been clearer - I'm applying to uni and have to undergo an interview for the course

    Thank you! That's really helpful!
