Overview of Application Process

  1. Students send application (see below How To Apply). The CDT review panel triages application of candidates to produce a shortlist.
  2. The CDT review panel interviews all shortlisted students centrally (a mixed panel of CDT investigators & potential supervisors).
  3. Successful students get an offer subject to finding an acceptable pairing with supervisor and project.
  4. Successful students will get access to a project selection pool and select up to 3 projects, ranking them in order of preference; students are also given the opportunity to interact with supervisors.
  5. Students and supervisors are paired and binding outcomes are communicated to the student. Students are asked to formally accept an offer for the offered supervisor & project pairing. The final offer of admissions will be subject to satisfying Imperial College conditions (including English language requirements, original transcripts, references and ATAS).
  6. Student starts PhD on October 1st and joins the CDT welcome week.
