UoN MeM Interviews
About UoN MeM Interviews:
The University of Newcastle (UoN) admission interviews are an important part of the selection process for some undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Interviews are typically conducted by a panel of academics and other professionals and are designed to assess your academic potential, motivation, and suitability for the program.
During your interview, you will likely be asked questions about your academic background, research interests, and career goals. You may also be asked to discuss your personal experiences and how they have shaped your academic and professional aspirations.
Typical Interview Method:
UoN interviews are typically semi-structured, which means that there is a set of core questions that the panel will ask, but there is also flexibility to explore other topics that are relevant to your application. This format allows the panel to get to know you better and to assess your fit for the program more holistically.
