Shortlisting and selection

Applicants will be assessed competitively on the basis of both academic achievement and academic potential in the context of their education to date. In the circumstances where all other things are equal, priority will then be given to those who are from groups that are currently under-represented in postgraduate study in the physical sciences and technology and/or who have experienced some form of educational disadvantage, using positive action under the Equality Act 2010 where appropriate. The University will monitor the impact and intends to use positive action only where appropriate.

We will notify successful applicants by Friday 26 April at the latest, with the aim of contacting candidates earlier if possible.
