PhD application qub belfast Watch
I am currently in the process of applying for a PhD public history at qub Belfast. I am very nervous. I was wondering if anyone could let me know the set up of the interview, how many people, how long etc?
Generally, a PhD interview will ask about your interests and try to determine why you want to do research and why that topic. I am taking a guess, but I reckon academic interviews, at least for PhD's, are a bit less formal than ones for industry. Nothing to be nervous about - just be yourself.
Remember that you will be talking to someone who is actually interested in the same topic that you are, so you can actually talk freely and have an interesting discussion. This is in contrast to talking to friends who often won't give a **** - so you may acutally enjoy the experience as well!
