Practise Your Interview

If you have an interview coming up, the Careers Service can help you practise and improve your interview technique.

As well as our Interview Simulator, you can talk to us about preparing for interviews, including typical questions asked, at our drop-in sessions.

If you have an interview date in place, we may also be able to offer an interview coaching session with a careers adviser. Contact us or ask at our Welcome desk for more details.

Interview Simulator

Current students and registered Newcastle University graduates can use our Interview Simulator to: 

  • take a mock interview – record yourself answering interview questions and compare your responses to video advice from employers
  • explore common interview questions from recruiters and find out why they ask them and what makes a good answer
  • access a range of interview learning modules, including how to prepare and what interviewers look for

Getting started

Current students will need to use their Newcastle University username and password to access the Interview Simulator. 

If you're a registered Newcastle University graduate, you'll need to contact us, stating your full name and email address, to request access to the Interview Simulator. This may take a few days. If you have an interview coming up shortly, please let us know.
