I have been invited for a second interview in the Netherlands for a PhD position composed of the following: (1)to present my masters thesis research and (2) an interview with a group of about 3 people. I'm sure someone has written about this before, but I wanted to know to what extent I should anticipate technical questions in the interview (not the presentation on masters research). The reason I ask is because I recently was invited for a similar interview in Switzerland (following the same structure) where I choked on some technical questions regarding coursework I took a while ago (it was a simple question that I just couldn't remember since I hadn't touched the material in two years). I also know the system is slightly different in the Netherlands. For one thing, I will be required to take a couple courses the first year anyway (which was not the case with the Swiss program which was 3 years of pure research as opposed to 4 years in the Netherlands). The Dutch system seems a bit more relaxed than the Swiss from my own personal observation. I am just wondering if I should do a crash course review of all the classes I took or just focus on the elements of my coursework relevant to the PhD project. I know at the end of the day it is all highly subjective, but I would appreciate an feedback anyone has in consideration of my situation. I really dont want to slip on this one. Thanks!
