Tips and tricks for interviews

For many of us, interviews are always characterized as intimidating moments. No matter if we are talking about a job interview, or, in our scenario, about college/university interview, this stage is a very decisive one. That’s being said, it requires a certain preparation prior to the actual interview time, so it can run smoothly for the candidate.

Because we know by heart all the tips and trick when it comes to interviews – from the way you should dress to the body language, to all the means you can highlight your skills – we have decided to put them on paper so you won’t have to dig deeper to prepare for it.
Below, you can find the most asked questions during a college/university interview:

  1. Why have you decided to apply to us?

This question is one of the most popular ones and it shows how much you have prepared for the actual interview. A quick google search about the institution will definitely be your best friend. And in case you are not quite confident on what to focus, you can mention their reputation, the course/program they offer, or even the leisure facilities that impressed you during the open day.

  1. What are you hoping to gain from the course?

Their intention is to see if for you this course is perceived as a stepping stone for your future career, or if it’s an area you would like to study more in-depth.

  1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

If you’ve got a plan in mind, that’s great. Otherwise, don’t worry. Most of the candidates are not sure about what they will do after graduation. It is perfectly okay to say “I am not sure at the moment. I hope this course will show me the right direction.”

  1. What do you think your strengths and weaknesses are?

This question can be tricky sometimes. It is very easy to talk about your strengths – you are reliable, trustworthy, a game-changer, etc. If you are a great team member as well, make sure you mention it. But what to say when it comes to weaknesses? Nobody wants to talk about their flaws, but at the same time, nobody is perfect. So maybe you are too competitive sometimes when working within a team? Or get too excited about a project and forget at all about the deadline? Do you have a better plan now to stick to it?

  1. Do you have any questions for me?

One of the most important questions, and usually, the last one. Make sure you have 2-3 questions ready to ask. This is your chance to find the answers you were looking for. You can have questions about the course, tutors, or something that is not clear to you.

And now, because we got you started somewhere, we’ll continue this blog with some tips and tricks on how to make a good first impression.

  1. Arrive early

Make sure you give yourself an extra 15 – 30 minutes to show punctuality. Plan your journey in advance, because this will give you time to re-read your application before the interview.

  1. Bring a copy of your application and your CV

They do not expect you to remember everything. So, bring with you a copy of your application and have a look at it before the interview. Bring some notes in regard to the course, institution, etc and show that you have done your research properly.

  1. Strike a balance between formal and causal

Make a great first impression by dressing smart. Keep it simple, and make sure you don’t look uncomfortable in your clothes, especially if you are not used to wearing suits.

  1. Do not let shyness or nerves to get in your way

It is perfectly normal to get nervous and be shy when it comes to interviews. However, try to focus on the subject and answer the questions naturally. Be you 🙂
We hope these tips and tricks will help you to achieve what you are aiming for.

As mentioned before, both on Facebook and Instagram, the registration process and the interview with the institutions will be running remotely, via telephone.

But there’s an important update coming from the financial side. Student Loan company restoring partial customer contact services. They “can also confirm that students will receive their scheduled or next instalment of their Maintenance Loan at the planned start of their summer term.” (Gov-uk. Student Loan Company). You can give them a call on 0300 100 0607, from 10:00am to 5:30pm.

As a reminder, during this period – emergency period – everyone is eligible to apply for student loan, regardless of whether they are working or not. If working, they can provide their payslips (as usual), and if not, they can send a proof they are getting governmental support.

Student Loan UK
All about Student Loan in UK!

  We have always encouraged our students to apply for a government-funded course, because it’s not only offering you the opportunity to study in UK, but it also helps to cover your expenses throughout the studies.

As mentioned before, the Student Loan Company offers you a loan (it funds you) so you can learn in higher education. The tuition fee loan goes directly to the institution, while the maintenance loan will help you during studies. This amount of money it’s paid into your bank account and doesn’t have to be justified to the government.

In order to be eligible for maintenance loan:

  • Must have lived in the UK for three years up to when you start your course;
  • Mush show your last 3 payslips;
  • Mush have a minimum of £750 income per month.

Indeed, you have to repay the loan after graduation, but it depends on which plan you are on and how much you earn (per year). Each plan has a threshold for your weekly, monthly, or annual income (which is determined and mentioned by Student Loan Company at the beginning of every academic year, on their website). You do not pay anything back if your income is under the threshold.

  Intotdeauna am incurajat studentii sa aplice pentru un curs finantat de compania Student Loan. Pe langa faptul ca iti ofera oportunitatea de a studia un UK, te ajuta si cu cheltuielile tale pe toata perioada cursurilor. Dar ce este, de fapt, acest loan?

Cum am mentionat mai sus, guvernul iti ofera un imprumut (te finanteaza) pentru a-ti continua studiile in Marea Britanie. Fondurile care se duc direct la institutie poarta numele de TUITION FEE LOAN. Pe langa acestea, poti accesa si fonduri pentru intretinerea personala – MAINTENANCE LOAN – (care nu trebuie justificate in nici un fel).

Pentru a fi eligibil, trebuie:

  1. Sa fi locuit in ultimii 3 ani intr-o tara din Uniunea Europeana;
  2. Sa poti arata ca ai lucrat in ultimele 3 luni;
  3. Sa ai un venit minim de £750 pe luna

Intr-adevar, aceste fonduri sunt RAMBURSABILE. Dupa terminarea studiilor ii vei returna, dar asta se va intampla doar in anumite conditii. Iar prima conditie e sa castigi peste o anumita suma pe an (suma care va fi decisa si mentionata de Student Loan la inceputul fiecarui an academic pe site-ul principal), iar tu vei plati doar un procent din suma care depaseste venitul stabilit.
