I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Derby UK (Buxton, East Midlands, England, England) in Sep 2019

Interview

Upon arrival the atmosphere of the University was quite nice with the receptionist who was rather welcoming and knew I was there for a job interview. The 2 members of the team that I met were very nice and friendly and the overall interview was well-conducted with a nice variety of questions. The only thing which confused me a little was the fact that there wasn't a table at the interview room to sit at - just chairs to sit on which I found distracting. But other than that, it was great. Although I didn't get the job, the feedback was very helpful and I'm going to use it towards improving myself when I get my next job interview.
