An interview is an important part of the selection process for doctoral study at Imperial and all applicants must be interviewed before a formal offer of admission is made.

This interview must be conducted by at least 1 and normally 2 members of staff, as well as:

  • the Director of Postgraduate Studies; or
  • the Head of Department or nominee.

Interviews may be conducted as a video conference or teleconference if it is not possible for the candidate to visit the Department.

Further information about an individual Department’s interview processes, including its policy and practice on interviewing applicants based overseas are detailed on the individual departmental websites.
