Preparing for Interview Canada University

Preparing for an Interview to Get Admission in a Canadian University

Many high school students aspire to pursue their higher education abroad especially in USA, Canada, Europe and Australia. As far as Canada is concerned, it has many universities and colleges that enjoy a world-class reputation. Arguably, the best higher education institutions are based in the cities of Montreal and Toronto. The University of Toronto, McGill University, and the University of British Columbia are three top ranked academes of Canada.

Although many colleges or universities do not have a mandatory interview process, most of them prefer to meet a prospective candidate before granting him or her admission. However, do not assume that your tete-a-tete with the admissions counsellor or interviewer will be a cakewalk just because it doesn't take the form of a formal interview. Keeping the following dos' and don'ts' in mind will go a long way in helping you to convince your interviewer that you'll be an asset for the university.

Your Passion and Enthusiasm Could Work Wonders

You should be passionate about the subjects that you wish to take up in your study program. Furthermore, your enthusiasm regarding your specialization area should be infectious as well. For instance, if you wish to apply in the humanities stream with a major in English language and literature, then you should demonstrate your knowledge about the same. You should prepare with thoroughness so that you can answer most of the questions asked by the interviewer.

Do Be Prepared for Questions that Test Your Creativity

Don't be under the impression that you'll have to field only general questions on your subject area. More often than not, you'll be asked questions that'd require you to think on your feet. Some of the questions posed to you will test your ability to think out of the box.

Doing Your Homework

This does not need to be explicitly mentioned but you should have complete information about the institution you're applying to and the study programs it offers. Therefore, conduct online research about the university's history, some of the important study courses and majors it offers, and so on. However, be especially prepared to answer questions regarding your academic discipline.

Don't Rest on Your Past Laurels

It's good to relate about your past academic achievements as far as creating an impression is concerned. However, do not bank excessively on your past laurels. Your interviewer will form an opinion about you based more on how you present yourself during the interview and your application essay.

Don't Have a Negative Approach

Don't have any prefixed notions about the interview process. It's a common tendency among students to assume that complicated questions will be asked and that they'll not be able to live to the expectations of the interviewer. Avoid presupposing anything about the interview rather keep a flexible approach.
