Chevening 2015/2016 Interview


Hey guys! As some of you know, Chevening interviews have started today. It would be extremely useful for all of us who are in this last stage of the competition to know which questions are usually asked in the interview.
I know that those who already had their interview and past chevening scholars can give us an insight of this :)
Thanks!!!

I am in the same boat.
I have an interview for the same scholarship coming up in early April. Being scared is an understatement. I simply do not know what to expect. I hope we can find some useful insight into the interview process.

If we have made this far optimisticgirl, is because they are already interested in us. It´s matter of confirmming their expectation about us. Let's be optimistic ;) Notwithstanding, We are still waiting a previous scholar/interviewee who already had its interview to give us some advice :)

The fear of the unknown is paralysing. Saw that the interview slots were many yet I know the slots are not that many. Makes me wonder what the interview:award ratio is. But let's keep our faith alive.

True! I guess we should focus on being what they are looking for: A future leader who can benefit both its country and the UK!
I am still hoping to hear from previous scholars how they have done so :)

I have talked to a few people who did the interview and the following questions seem to be recurring:
a. Why do you want to study in the UK?
b. Why did you choose to study that course?
c. Why did you think you can be a future leader?
d. Short term and long term professional goals.
e. How will the country benefit from your experience and expertise in the future?
These questions seem to be common to most of the potential scholars.

Well, I would say the main factor they take into account is your potential to benefit your country through your studies. They have to see that your field of study will have a real impact in one of the priority areas. You have to show that. Also confidence is very important, if you do not demonstrate you are confident about your chances to achieve your goals, benefit your country and be a future leader, do not expect them to believe that. Good luck!
