Graduate programmes tend to be similar to any other job application. You’ll complete an online application, sometimes writing a cover letter or email, and then if you are successful, attend an interview (this may also be online, via a video call).
However, some programmes use an ‘assessment centre’ or assessment day, where lots of candidates are brought together and complete a series of exercises and tests. These might be things such as presentations, group problem solving and written tasks. These tend to showcase a broader range of skills than a traditional interview.
