Our University Interview Skills course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to prepare for your interview. We demystify the interview process by delving into the interviewer’s perspective, the information they already have about you and the criteria they’re using to assess you.
The course will also explore the types of questions you’ll be asked and how best to tackle them, and develop tools to manage nerves and negative thoughts, to enable you to have a more enjoyable and informative experience.
