About the process

Mock interviews are an opportunity to practice the interview process for funding applications. A panel specific to your topic area will be assembled, and interview questions relating to your funding application will be asked. This will be an opportunity for you to present your project idea and gain feedback on your presentation and interview technique.

All interviews offered take place at the RPS London office, 66-68 East Smithfield.
