We operate two main internal review deadlines for shortlisting and interviews. We continue to review applications beyond these two deadlines, but most offers are normally made after the first two deadlines, so early applications are strongly encouraged.

There is a separate funding deadline for University based funding – normally the two NanoDTC internal review deadlines are before the funding deadline.

For entry in Oct 2023 the deadlines are expected to be:

1st Dec 2022 (1st round)

4th Jan 2023 (2nd round)

Offers may be made after the first round, before applications from further rounds are considered.

Countdown to first deadline

The 2nd review deadline for Oct 2023 applications is 4th Jan

Your application must include the following before we can consider it:

1. The completed application form

2. Both academic references

3. Your university transcript

4. Your CV

Shortlisting and Interviews

All candidates who are shortlisted will be invited for interview. The interviews will be conducted remotely, as part of a two-day event, which will include an opportunity for interviewees to talk to our current students and learn about some of the research and facilities in the key departments where we are based: Physics, Chemistry, Materials, and Engineering.

The first round of interviews will be held early-mid Jan 2023, and a second round is planned for mid-late Jan 2023 (after some offers from the first round have been made). Shortlisted candidates will be informed by email.

Applicants who receive offers will also be
offered a chance to visit us in person in May 2023. Visits before this date can be arranged upon request.
