Does grad school let you know whether you get a place and funding at the same time?

Hi, I know that there are often two processes after a PhD interview: the school will decide whether (1) you get a place; (2) whether you get funding. From your experience, did you hear back from your potential supervisors first whether you get a place or did you get to know both at the same time? It's been almost three weeks since my interview and I haven't heard anything from the school. The chair of the interview did say to me that the first process will be quick and the second will take up to 4-8 weeks. Does this mean I won't be offered a place?

Is this the US process? I think it is done differently in the UK. Can you just call them (student admin) to find out?

Sorry I wasn't clear in my question. Was trying to find a way to edit it but I have no idea how to. So this is a British university that I applied to and it's the school of arts and humanities. The funding body is the university, which offers scholarships for several schools and departments. Yeah, I was thinking of waiting for another week and then I'll give them a call. Just don't look want to sound impatient.

Ah OK! Guess they all do it differently. I would just call them. They don't even need to know who you are if you're just ringing to clarify what the process is and when you should have the answer. Good luck!
