College students celebrating their graduation, with a tradition of throwing their graduation caps to the air. We can see four students, two men and two woman, doing it in front of a school building.Prestigious colleges and best Universities will often invite applicants for a face to face interview. The interview at school differs a lot to a typical job interview.

It typically takes less than twenty minutes (sometimes as little as five minutes), each applicant answers the very same questions. You will have only a few minutes to demonstrate that you deserve the place at the college.

Considering the conditions and the format of the interview, first impression, enthusiasm in your voice, and charisma are absolutely crucial for succeeding.

Their questions will relate to the following areas:

  • The study program you apply for
  • Your motivation, and personality
  • What it means for you to study, and how will the school benefit from having you on board
  • Soft skills and attitudes that matter for the particular field of study

 

Show your maturity

Try to present yourself as a mature person. Show them that you know why you are applying for the study program, and what you want to achieve in life, once you successfully graduated and start working.
