  1. Agree with MHarry! First, it should be clear what do you plan to do. Second, think about the countries and research. In some countries, you may need PhD more in some less. Look at the salaries there, competition within the market and also think about the network. Maybe there is someone who can suggest better how it goes in the particular industry and country. Sometimes, the network plays an important role. The last, you have to clarify in which direction you should go. Base your decision not only on your dreams. Try to be realistic. Think about the working place where you can show your skills on 100%.
  2. Was in the similar situation. Well, from my experience there are two reasons why this interview goes on. First, it is country. Second, the size of the group. I have applied to several universities in Italy and had the interview in 3 out of 5. At the same time, all good universities in Germany did not ask for the interview but I filled so many papers and documents to apply there... I would choose the interview instead of all of that paperwork... The second reason, the number of students in the group. The smaller the group is planned, the greater chance of the interview.
  3. I spent between the $850-$1000
  4. Hmm, i think this can be useful for you
  5. Hey! Where do you plan to publish it? Like your site or blog? As they I understood you have already followers who are reading your posts. Am I right? Well, if we speak about hiring I think first what is necessary to do is personal branding.
  6. Hi! Well, not the easiest decision. First, check where you will have a chance to work after graduation, also look at the internships which are more popular and relevant to your course. I had a friend of a friend who studied psychology in UCL. I do not remember the exact course title of her studies but the reason why she decided to go to UCL was that UCL is the best uni for psychology and all related courses to it. I did not do personal research but that what I heard.
