Application Procedure

The CDT in Catalysis has a slightly different application process to others you may have encountered.  We gladly accept applications all year round and we do not have a deadline for submitting an application, due to our strategy of have rolling interviews throughout the year, with the aim to make offers to the strongest applicants as we go along.

We do however, recommend that you submit an application earlier rather than later as we have usually filled our allocation of places by May.  If you have government/industrial funding, or if you are self funded, we can review your application at any time of the year, please contact the CDT Manager directly.

Interview Process

Once you have submitted your application, CV and references we review your documentation and if you have the qualifications and have the references we are looking for, your application is sent onto the recruitment panel who review it and if your application is suitable you will be invited to attend an interview with us.

You will need to allow a whole day for the interview, as in the morning you will be interviewed by the CDT Manager, followed by an academic interview at Cardiff University. You will then travel to either University of Bath or University of Bristol for a second interview and a tour of the facilities. We interview individually and see quite a few applicants on the same day.

After interviewing the recruitment panel then feedback and agree any successful applicant. The CDT manager then contacts those applicants individually to make an offer. This is then formalised by the university.

Once you are made an offer, you will be invited to join us for any appropriate events, and to join the Facebook pages for regular updates.

Thursday 19th October 2017 Thursday 23rd November 2017
