Thank you for applying for the Masters of Science in Occupational and Organisational Psychology / Business Psychology at UEL. Admission onto the course is subject to successfully passing the interview process, so please read the following information carefully.

Confirming your interview

We will offer a choice of three dates and time slots for you to select the most suitable one. To choose your date, please respond to our interview invitation sent to your email.  If later it appears that you are unable to attend on the day, please let us know as far in advance as possible. We will try to offer an alternative but please be aware, owing to the large number of applications we receive, this may not always be possible.

How should I prepare for my interview?

Please come prepared to talk about yourself, why you are interested in this particular course and specifically what makes you a good candidate to study with us. Please also think about any questions you would like to ask us. You are not required to bring anything in addition.

Where does my interview take place?

We aim at providing flexibility for you, so we can hold interviews both online and in person.

Online interviews take place via Microsoft Teams.

On-campus interviews take place at the School of Psychology on the Stratford University of East London campus. The address is:

The University of East London
School of Psychology – Arthur Edwards Building
Stratford Campus
Water Lane
E15 4LZ

On arrival, you should report to the main entrance reception desk in the Conference and Computing Centre and you will be collected from there by a staff member. Directions to the University can be found on our  Find us page.


What does the interview process involve?

The interview will be a chance for us to find out more about you and vice versa.

Each interview lasts for about 30 minutes and during that time we would like to see you at your best, so the questions will focus on your strengths, current understanding of the course subject matter and relevant experiences.

We are also very happy to answer questions about our courses, but before you ask them, please have a look at the University of East London website to find out more about them (in most cases the answers are already there).

Who will be conducting the interview?

You will be interviewed by a member of the teaching staff from our programme.

How will I know if I have been successful in my application?

The result of your interview will be posted on the applicant portal and you will receive an email notification of that within seven working days from your interview date.

Special access or requirements

If you have any special access or communication requirements for your visit, please email prior to your visit. 

We look forward to meeting you.
