    Interview process

    Following a very detailed online application form, I was instructed to attend a group task (of 5 others) lasting around 1hr. We were told to save one person from a total of 8 fictional people from a cave, and come up with an order of which to save first. The task involved discussing and justifying between all group members as to their choices. Following a 10min presentation, I was then interviewed in front of the same panel of 3. The interview lasted around 45mins, in which I was asked both personal and generic questions regarding how I'd react in certain situations. I was first in the interview process, which helped for me as some people waited all day for theirs. Very friendly interview staff really helped my nerves which were quickly diminished.

    Most difficult question

    Give an example of how you would improve student retention at university.

    Interview tips

    Make sure you prepare thoroughly. If you've graduated from university already make use of their services while you still can, book out pointers for presentations to make you look extra organised. I used 'prezi' which also gave me the edge on my presentation, which is considerably easy to use (search for it online). If you are subject to a group exercise, don't be afraid to butt in to other people's ideas. By all means don't be rude, but look as if you're building on their ideas while secretly forwarding yours, otherwise it's hard to speak over the more outspoken members of the group! Other than the above, I went into the position before the interview to get to know the staff and get inside tips. It makes you sound super keen and organised.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Kept as a whole group for the group session, where we were given 30mins to prepare and 30 to discuss our justifications. We were then split into individual time slots in which we were interviewed (45mins) and presented our presentations (10mins).
