Interview guidance for applicants to the Scientist Training Programme 2021

This guidance will assist applicants in preparing for their STP interview.


Congratulations on being shortlisted following your STP application. It is natural to be nervous before and during the interview. Try not to let those nerves get to you by ensuring you prepare well.

The interview is an important process. It is your opportunity to demonstrate to the panel how you meet the requirements of the post. If you do not meet the required level your application will be declined. All interviews are designed to be fair, equitable and transparent and all processes will be applied consistently. If you need any reasonable adjustments that relate specifically to an online interview, please email us at immediately.
