PhD Interview Tips!



I have a Psychology PhD interview coming up in the next few days.

Has anyone got any tips they can offer to me? Maybe what was asked of them - and perhaps what I can expect to be asked?



The obvious questions:

1) Why a PhD in this topic?
2) Why our university/department?
3) What skills do you have that will help you succeed in the PhD?
4) What skills will you develop during the course of the PhD?
5) What novel contributions do you hope to make from this project?

Answer these effectively and the interview will go well.
