  • L. Fortunato (U. Padova)
  • Stefano Romano (LNS Catania)
  • J. Gomez-Camacho (U. Sevilla)

J. Gomez-Camacho (U. Sevilla) will act as coordinator. The documentation sent by each applicant will be evaluated by three panel members. The average of the marks of the three panel members will be considered as a preliminary evaluation for each candidate. Panel members will also write comments on each candidate. After the preliminary evaluation will be carried out, each applicant will be interviewed, via skype, by one panel member. The questions ask, and global evaluation criteria, will be previously agreed, so that the marks in the interview would be homogeneous. The ranking of the candidates will be completed, including the points of the interview, and the language level. The final selection will also into account the EACEA rules of spreading the scholarships among the different applicant nationalities (no more than two scholarships for a given country). The ranking of the candidates is enclosed in the Annex below. As it is stated in the website, the applicants will be classified as:

  • Group I: Applications of very good quality (score higher than 75 points out of 100). 
  • Group II: Applications of good quality (score between 60 and 75 points out of 100). 
  • Group III: Applications of weak quality (score less than 60 points out of 100). .

The panel members consider that the available places in the master (25), with or without EU funding, should be offered first to the applicants in Group I, and if there are vacancies left, to the applicants in Group II, following the ranking order provided.

Applicants in Group III will be  no longer considered for the master.

The first 16 applicants in Group I will be selected for EACEA scholarships.  They will be notified and should reply the NucPhys secretariat if they accept the grant. There are 9 extra places in the master for self-financed students, Students in Group that have not been rewarded with the scholarship will be contacted to know if they would accept to participate self-financed in the Master. Universities in the Master consortium are looking for partial financial help for these students. This help is not defined yet, accepted students will be notified on the help when available. If the Master is not completed with students in Group I, Group II applicants will be contacted.

Group III students are considered not eligible for this Master.
