I've been nominated by the Head of Department (Law) for the NB Scholarship. This was after I failed to secure a Studentship with Newcastle University. I wasn't even shortlisted, yet they've put me forward for this scholarship [insert confused face here]. I've been allocated a supervisor and already have a proposal to work with (although it'll need some major amendments).
I am SCARED, and a little out of my depth! My MA was a Taught Masters at KCL, not a research degree.
Does anyone who has knowledge of the NB scholarship have any advice? My research proposal will be around 700 words.
I applied for a Studentship (funded PhD) on the 25th June and got a very speedy response on the 28th with details about my interview.
This will be my first interview for a funded PhD and quite frankly, I'm bricking it. The interview will only be 30 mins (or so they say) and I have to be prepared to talk (and answer questions on) my proposal with a 'non-specialist audience', my experience and suitability to teach and motivations for applying.
A few questions which may or may not be silly:
How many people do they usually shortlist for a funded research PhD at a Russell Group uni like Liverpool?
Do you think they already have someone in mind?
They've already contacted my old lecturer for a reference - usual protocol? I would start in September.
What should I focus my preparation on? I only have a week!
DOs and DON'Ts during the interview?
Bit of info about me: Plymouth Law LLB (2:1), KCL Medical Law (Distinction)
