Q1. Introduce yourself and tell me why we should hire you as a Lecturer?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I have many years’ experience as a Lecturer and I have a track record for delivering the highest standards of tuition. One of my main objectives as a Lecturer is to enable my students to achieve their academic goals and to also encourage them to work hard and lay down the foundations of a bright and successful future. I believe a good Lecturer is someone who has an immense passion for their subject, someone who can use creative methods of teaching that are designed to maintain optimum attention levels within class, and also someone who ties in their teaching with the educational responsibilities of the University or College there are working for. Based on my experience as a Lecturer, the knowledge I have of my subject matter, and also my ability to deliver results based on the curriculum, I feel you will be very satisfied with the results I produce if you hire me as one of your Lecturers.”

Q2. Describe the skills you have that will make you a good Lecturer?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I want to work for Facebook primarily due to the impact you continue to have on the world as an organization, and also the culture you have in place here. Mark Zuckerburg, the CEO, is also one of the reasons why I want to work for Facebook. This is due to his strong community values and the talent he possesses in regard to constantly changing and evolving the organization. We spend a long time at work, and on that basis, I want to work somewhere I feel I am making a significant impact in my role, somewhere I can see the results of my work, and also the opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented teams and individuals on the planet.”

University & College Lecturer Job Description and Responsibilities


Further education and higher education lecturers are usually employed by universities and colleges to carry out teaching, research and general administrative duties. Despite what most people believe, there are actually no requirements for a higher education lecturer to have any formal qualifications. This is one of the reasons why the University Lecturer interview is so important to prepare for, simply because the level of questioning will be in-depth and focused not only on your subject matter, but the experience and skills you can bring to the role.

Duties and responsibilities of a University or College Lecturer

  • Preparing lesson plans and research to ensure the teaching you deliver is to a high standard;
  • Delivering and presenting lectures within the constraints of the course or educational curriculum;
  • Assessing and marking student’s assessments, papers and work;
  • Being an invigilator during student examinations, assessments and tests;
  • Creating research papers or proposals as and when required by the university or College;
  • Encouraging personal development work of all students;
  • Attending scheduled staff and teacher meetings;
  • Ensuring the safeguarding of all students in line with policies and procedures;
  • Reporting to the University president, principal or rector on the progress of students in line with the curriculum;
  • General administrative work as deemed suitable by the University of College you are working for.

5 TIPS FOR PASSING A UNIVERSITY OR COLLEGE LECTURER INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – We have conducted significant research into the level of questions commonly asked during University and College lecturer interviews, and the 21 listed on this page, are the ones we strongly recommend you prepare answers to. You have the option of either spending time creating your own answers, or you can download Richard McMunn’s recommend responses and use those as a basis for your own.

TIP #2 – During your University or College Lecturer interview, you will be asked questions that assess why you want to become a Lecturer, what you understand about the role, and also what you can bring to the course or curriculum. Think carefully what difference you can make to their university, and in particular, how your style of teaching will make a difference to your students’ lives, and in particular their academic results.

TIP #3 – It is important you prepare for behavioural interview questions during your preparation. Behavioral interview questions assess how you have previously reacted to specific situations in the past. Questions such as: “Tell me about a time when a lesson didn’t go according to plan?” require an in-depth level of response, so make sure you give specific answers to these type of competency-based interview questions.

TIP #4 – When responding to University Lecturer behavioural-type interview questions, we strongly recommend you use the S.T.A.R technique to structure your answer. This is basically a method that means you answer the situational interview questions by stating the SITUATION you found yourself in, the TASK that needed to be done, the ACTION you and other people took to complete the task, and finally the RESULT following your actions. The STAR technique is a great way to answer behavioural interview questions correctly!

TIP #5 – At the end of your University Lecturer interview, you will have the opportunity to ask the panel a series of questions. Make sure you think of three smart and intelligent questions to ask before you attend the interview.
