How did you decide to apply to Oxford? 

Oxford seemed to be an excellent choice from many perspectives - it ran a great engineering department, seemed to have a very enjoyable atmosphere and was accessible financially.

How did you find the application process? 

The interviews were challenging, but fun. Definitely prepare for them! Know your proofs and the standard formulae. It's not imperative that you know those to succeed, but it definitely helps. Studying in the UK has been amazing, eye opening and challenging in so many different ways, including in non-academic ways.

What did you think was the most confusing part of the Oxford application process? 

Interviews. There are far too many resources that will mention something like "Tell me about a banana". I have never heard of anyone who got interview questions like this. Most of the time you will be asked questions related only to the subject you want to study. Sometimes the question will be abstract, because they want to see the way you think. This is why it is important to show them your thought process. Don't be stressed. Most tutors will do everything for you to feel relaxed, it is not in their interest to stress you, they want to see the best in you. If you don't understand something - ask questions. Is there anything you always wanted to know? Interview is the time when you can ask one of the world's best professors in this field. Use this time.
