Hi Everyone, I applied for a PhD recently and have just been told I've got an interview. It is for a Psychology PhD where the research title and proposal are already given and funding is agreed for the successful candidate. What I wanted to know is how many people do they usually interview for this type of thing, will it be about the same as for a graduate job (i.e. 4-6 intereviewees)?

Hi I'm currently studying for an MSc in psychology. I did the course to improve on the 2:1 i got at degree and to get better knowledge of psych (as did BSc joint hons) with a view to going on to do a PhD. The thing is I don't think I'm going to to get a very good grade, should pass but just. So my question is: Is there any chance of getting PhD funding (ESRC or studentship) without either a 1st at degree or distinction at MSc? and Is there any point persueing a PhD if you don't get funding? Is it in any way frowned upon to self fund (particularly in academia)? This is all leading me to feel that the time and money spent on the Masters may have been wasted.
Any info/ opinions greatly appreciated, thanks
