Hello,

My brain has gone to mush so sorry if this seems like a silly question. I am currently writing a research proposal, where I intend to interview several students from different ethnic/religious backgrounds. In order to do this, I wish to select one student from each religious and cultural society within my university union to study. Can anyone assist me with whether this would be stratified random sampling I am choosing a student at random from a survey population or have I got this completely wrong?
Thanks so much

This sample will not be large enough to do much useful statistical analysis.

great thanks. I think non-probability sampling would be better after reviewing it. Thanks for your help.

Yep - you're sampling randomly from each strata (group).

Is your research qualitative or quantitative? You mentioned you're conducting interviews so it's seems to be qualitative approach. Check this paper Robinson(2014) "Sampling in Interview-Based Qualitative Research: A Theoretical and Practical Guide". Should be a good start.

You need to be total "nuts" to apply statistical analysis to qualitative data, lol.

However, if by interview you mean something else, then it's another story.
