I'm not so sure. I was under the impression that it was not necessarily a mandatory part of the process. I guess we'll see if anyone else is required to interview.

I think it is very positive.

I'm sure each professor has their own style for accepting new students. This could be their regular move.

My potential supervisor was happy to discuss my research objectives via email. It's a bit complicated for me as I might require an additional supervisor in another faculty, as my research objectives overlap with another department.

One of my potential supervisors wrote my reference. However, in all honesty, I am pretty much ending up at UCL except if something fundamental changes. I find that my research interests would be best supervised at UCL and the supervisor there has been heavenly and amazing.

It is true that interviews are not always required. However, sometimes a supervisor wants to get more information about you and your project before they commit 3-4 years of their life in supervising you. The mere fact that your application was sent to a supervisor already is proof that admissions feels that you pass all the requirements of admission and is now at the point of marketing you to supervisors to supervise you.

I just received an email from Cambridge Trust asking me to apply for a joint scholarship with the government of my country. But I have no idea whether this is relevant to the application process.

I think it went well! The interview was relaxed and informal. It mostly open ended questions focusing on the proposal. But it didn't feel like the interviewer was pressing or testing, more just curious.

The interviewer said that following the interview he would submit a report on it to the Degree Committee who would then make a final decision.

Perhaps the other professor had a change in their plans or availability. I hope we both get good news soon!

Hi! Are you going to UCL? I received an offer from UCL but was waitinglisted for the faculty funding.
