Selection of participants 2019 - 2021

A panel of 8 scientists will evaluate all valid applications to NUCPHYS, following the approved selection criteria that are shown in the selection process section. The 8 panelists are:

  • A. Insolia (U. Catania)
  • J.M. Udías (U. Complutense Madrid)
  • L.M. Robledo (U. Autónoma de Madrid)
  • David Boilley (U. Caen)
  • A. Ramos (U. Barcelona)
  • 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. The Selection Committee will use the score obtained in this step of the process to select the best 50 applicants to proceed to the next stage, where students will be interviewed via videoconferencing by one of the members of the Committee. 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.

In order to ensure a wide representation of nationalities, no more than 2 candidates from the same country may be awarded with the scholarship. 

The applicants will be classified as:

  • Group I: Applications of very good quality (score higher than 74 points out of 100). 
  • Group II - Reserve List -  Applications of good quality (score between 60 and 74 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 (26), 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 who did not pass to selection phase of the interview and applicants in the Group III will be  no longer considered for the master.

The first 17 applicants in Group I will be selected for EACEA scholarships based on the elegibility criteria set by the NUCPHYS consortium.  They will be notified and should reply the NucPhys secretariat if they accept the grant. There are 8 extra places in the master for self-financed students, The  candidates who have not been awarded with the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship fulfil the NUCPHYS admission  requirements  and  therefore are invited  to  register on a self‐funded basis in  the NUCPHYS master Intake 3  (2019/2021).

There are 8 places available  for self‐funded candidates.  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 (Reserve list) will be contacted.
