Practice Interview appointments are available all year round, (excluding UCL Closure Days), during the following times:
- Monday to Thursday: 10am - 12pm or 2pm - 5pm
PLEASE NOTE: 1-1 advice sessions are NOT available on Fridays.
In addition, we have the availability to use SKYPE for mock interviews for those who cannot travel in person to the UCL Careers Service.
As soon as you receive an Interview invite, you can download and complete the:
The form is used by the Adviser to identify how you would benefit from a practice interview. They can then focus the session appropriately so make sure you answer all the questions in as much detail as possible. Failure to do so will delay the booking of your appointment.
- the application form or CV that you used for your application
- a copy of the job specification or course details
- confirmation of the interview offer
This additional information is vital for the Careers Adviser to prepare the session so Practice Interviews will not be booked without it.
When we've received the required paperwork, we'll contact you to arrange a mutually convenient interview time before the real interview.
Please note: Practice Interviews are booked on a first come first served basis and are subject to availability. If there are no appointment slots free before your real interview when we receive your booking form, you'll be referred to other services and resources in the Student section of our website that can help with Interview Preparation.
This role-play exercise with a Careers Adviser will help you practice
typical interview questions for the role you've applied for and help
you work on your interview technique. You'll receive feedback on your
performance during the session and have chance to address any other
concerns you have about the interview process. We aim to make practice
interviews as similar to the real thing as possible so you must have a
real interview invite before booking.
For most interview types, we can put together a realistic Practice Interview based on what recruiters are likely to ask.
Our Advisers do not have specialist, technical knowledge of different industry areas where this type of interview is common. Many of the sector specific Interview Preparation resources we stock or refer to will include tips on how to prepare for this type of interview. However, as recruiters will be testing your knowledge on a specific subject area that our Advisers wont be familiar with, we'll be unable to provide relevant questions or answers for you.
As the Practice Interview session will also include a period of feedback and further discussion after the interview part, we're unable to conduct interviews over the phone.
You should treat the Practice Interview like the real thing in terms of preparation. The Interviews page in the Help With... section of our website will highlight a range of resources available through the Careers Service in terms of what to expect and how to prepare.
If you arrive more than 5 minutes late and the Careers Adviser doesn't feel they can do the practice interview effectively in whatever time is left of your appointment, you will be asked to re-book for a later date if there are still free appointments before the real thing.
