Take your time answering the questions and speak slowly and clearly. They will probably ask you some more difficult questions about your experience and personality. Such as; What makes you different from the other applicants? Why should you be giving the space over other students? Were do you see yourself in 5 years? What could you bring to the university? These are obviously not extensive but are very tricky to answer on the spot if you have not thought about the answer before. Try not to blabber or repeat yourself. Be confident. Good luck! Paul

It's hard to know exactly what they will ask you until you are in the interview. Be formal and polite, but overall be confident and stay calm. Do not get too nervous, if you do you may find yourself making stupid mistakes. Just give it your best shot. If you encounter a problem with something just take a deep breath and gather your thoughts. Should anything happen while online (Ex: internet access die and skype drops the call or you temporarily lose connection) apologize and explain the situation clearly and calmly. Do your best! You have worked hard to get where you are and deserve this chance so stay confident!

As long as you know the basic skype phrases like "Oops, hold on just a second while I fix my video..." you just need to treat it like any other interview. Know what you want to say, and make sure you're listening to their real questions! For mental preparation: http://www.ehow.com/how_5648281_prepare-skype-interview.html
