Interview types

There are two different types of practice interviews in Land Economy, which you may be asked to deliver. 

  1. Interview on 'application material' - asking the students' questions about their personal statement, or an essay they will submit as part of their application

  2. Interview on 'unseen material' - asking the students' questions on an article, study, or research paper they have not seen before, testing how they handle new material

SAMPLE Resources

Below you can access a folder of resources for conducting Land Economy interviews:

  1. Interview on application material - you can see a sample personal statement, highlighted with examples of questions which could be asked

  2. Interview on unseen material - you can see examples of articles which have previously been given to students, along with questions

These resources are intended for inspiration - to give you an idea of the level, length and themes of the material we use in our practice interviews. However, should you wish to use this material in the practice interviews you deliver, just let us know so we can make sure returning students haven't seen it before!

"I volunteer as a mock interviewer with OxFizz to help break down the barriers of applying to OxFizz, and to support young people achieve their potential. My advice to the students I support in mock interviews is to persevere when they're faced with difficult questions. As an interviewer I always look to get the best out of my students"
