Everything submitted. Application done. “Oh wait what?! There is some sort of video requirement?”. Yes, that’s right you’ve just remembered you have to complete a video interview (as Imperial College calls it) as part of your application to proceed – and you definitely don’t want this to derail your application.
We’ve researched an extensive, but not exhaustive, set of possible questions to help with your preparation – and guess what! All these prompts are built into Voomer’s AI-powered video assessment tools.
Imperial College London’s video interview structure
Imperial College Business School started using these video interviews as part of their admissions process some years ago, and the 2022 academic year is no different.
The way the video interview works is as follows: A few weeks after you submit you application and you are successful in getting approved by the first stage of the admissions process, you will receive a video interview invitation by email.
After receiving the invitation, you will have two weeks to complete the video interview – make sure you use that time to prepare with a platform like Voomer, don’t rush off and record your answers immediately.
The questions you’ll be asked fall into two categories. The first category will be pretty straightforward questions about you, your interests, and your passions. Admissions want applicants to have a chance to make their case in a more interesting medium such as video since the essays and test scores can be very dry.
The second category will be questions specific to the masters you are applying to. For example, if you are applying for a marketing-related program, expect questions such as “what is your favorite brand and why”. If you are applying for a finance-related program, questions such as “what is the latest innovation in the finance industry?”.
