Postgraduate Scholarship Interview Questions and Answers

Sample Question 1

Your statement of purpose serves as the fulcrum of your study. Schools offer you admission based on the excellence of your statement of purpose. In your interview invitation letter, you may be asked to come with your statement of purpose. The essence is that they want to ask you some questions from what you wrote there.  
Your statement of purpose should introduce yourself, your interests and motivations, summarize your undergraduate and previous graduate careers, discuss the relevance of your recent and current activities, elaborate on your academic interests etc. Some schools may give you guidelines or clues on the content of your statement of purpose...

Sample Question 2

This interview will not be complete if the committee does not revisit your past academic research achievements. The searchlight will be beamed on the solutions that your previous research offered or the questions it answered or the findings therein. 
You have to be at your best in answering questions on this area because they watch out for the confidence which shows authenticity and originality of the work in question. Expect questions to be technically grounded and even outside the scope of the research area but all these are geared at evaluating your understanding of the project work; its scope and limitations. 

Sample Question 3

QUESTION 5: What are your short-term and long-term career goals? 
PURPOSE OF QUESTION: This is a career progression test. Your answer to this question provides the interviewer with a sense of your initiative, interests, and ambition. A thorough and relevant response demonstrates you’ve spent some time reflecting on the professional direction you’d like to take and how you see yourself getting there.
ANSWER TIPS: Your answer should show consistency in your vision and career path. Companies and other sponsoring bodies will have their set objectives for awarding scholarships – either to absorb you into their workforce or as part of their community services. Be careful to make your discussion of your career progression consistent and to also suggest why you should be awarded the scholarship.
