Dear Ana,

I'm not sure about how Said school will do the interview process. But normally they will be expecting to know from you;

Why a Ph.D.?
Why that specific research interest?
Why this university?
Any specifics about your research or academic work (if any)

They also provide you chances to raise doubts from your end. may be about scholarships etc.,

This is a typical interview. But it may COMPLETELY VARY up on the school which does the interview process.

Also look elsewhere in this forum regarding similar such interview experiences being shared.


Prepare on the above lines (to the minimum).

I hope it is not too late...
the above recommendations are good. however, you might have already written something that related to that on your application. so basically in the interview they'd like to hear it in your own words, to see if what kind of a real person behind those words.
I don't know the oxford application process, but it is likely that they know about you a lot from the application itself. they just want to maybe fill some small details, but mainly to see that there is a real, serious person that stand behinds those aplication data.

anyway... I wish you good luck.

tell us how it goes.
