University of Leuven (Belgium)

The KU Leuven or the Katholieke Universiteit is a university with Dutch as its language of instruction. It offers a range of educational programs starting from international programs, degrees, PhD, Lifelong Learning Programme/Erasmus etc along with scholarships. If you have enrolled yourself in a course here that requires you to attend an interview then you should prepare yourself thoroughly for the same. Here are a few tips to prepare for a university interview.

Take It Seriously

Appearing for an interview to get admission in a college or university is no mean task. So please take it seriously. Do not think that the interview is ďjustĒ a formality and that you would be able to secure your place in the university just by the virtue of good grades in your board examinations or in your written tests. Treat the interview as seriously as you had treated your written test. Its significance is no less than that of a job interview. So start preparing early. Make sure that you are not missing out on crucial components of an interview.

General interview preparations require you to focus on three particular areas- the interview questions that are asked at almost all types of professional interviews, the behavioral interview questions and the subject or thesis specific questions. Please go through some examples in a bid to be informed further

General Interview Questions

  1. Why do you want to study here?
  2. Why are you pursuing this course?
  3. Why are you interested in pursuing this course?
  4. Tell us about your thesis subject.

Behavioral Interview Questions
  1. What can you tell us about your analysis power?
  2. Why do you think you can carry out a team project?

Other than the ones mentioned above, please try and find out if the university has designed some special rounds for candidates to test them or not. Extempore, video commenting can be possible inclusions here. Please take the trouble of finding out if at all the university devices such plans to surprise candidates or not.

Knowing About the University Is Important

Please remember that it is always essential to know about the organization you are interviewing at. Its understandable that you have applied to this university after doing your bit of research on the same. However, you need to prepare yourself in such a fashion that youíre able to provide proper answers to almost whatever youíre asked about the university. It is not really necessary that KU Leuven or the Katholieke Universiteit would ask you questions about its past and present, but itís always better to learn about the same. It reflects your seriousness about earning a place at the university.

Make Sure that Youíre Keeping Your Basics Right

Last but not the least, as is applicable for any interview, you should learn about the basic ways in which you should conduct yourself at the interview. Here is a list of a few dos and doníts of an interview that you should strictly follow:


  • Arrive at least 15 minutes before the interview (if required, arrive even earlier in case there is an elaborate registration process)
  • Dress appropriately
  • Maintain a pleasant smile on your face
  • Maintain a proper body language

  • Arrive late
  • Appear for the interview with incomplete preparations
  • Dress up eccentrically
  • Show arrogance
