Eligibility & academic entry criteria
Candidates of all nationalities can apply for the Crick PhD programme and studentship.
The standard Crick PhD programme and studentship academic eligibility criteria are:
- A first/upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent from a non-UK university) in a relevant subject.
- Appropriate research experience as part of, or outside of, a university degree course, or a master's degree in a relevant subject.
Applicants do not need to submit information relating to English language skills during the application process. If you are offered a Crick PhD studentship we will provide you with information on our English language requirements.
- Your application must be submitted by the deadline: 12 noon (UK time), Tuesday 29 March 2022.
- We will not accept late applications.
- We should receive your references by Tuesday 5 April 2022. Your application may still be considered if references are not received by this deadline. However, no applicant will be invited to interview unless references have been received.
- We will notify you of the outcome of your application by Tuesday 3 May 2022.
After the reference deadline, your application will be available to the following people:
- members of the Crick’s Academic Training team (junior researchers) for the purposes of checking eligibility;
- all of the recruiting Crick group leaders (and, where relevant, co-supervisors from our university partners) and also, potentially, relevant members of their groups for the purposes of shortlisting.
