In general, applications will be sought biannually, so that students can begin the program either at the start of the winter semester (beginning of October) or at the start of the spring semester (in February).

The application process begins by filling out a questionnaire and submitting all required documents via the online application portal. You will also be asked to indicate the topic you wish to pursue in your Ph.D. thesis work, chosen from the list of thesis topics for Physics or Chemistry.

Applications from those wishing to start in October 2019 will be sought until the 31st of July. If any formal corrections need to be made, applicants will be asked to make them no later than 9th August. Interviews will be conducted in early September. Applicants will be notified of the precise date and time by 14th August.
