Research Doctorate PHD

Rankings and replacements


At the end of the assessments, each Admission Board will draw up, in accordance with the criteria identified in the call, a ranking for each research area: places, with or without a scholarship, will be allocated in accordance with the order defined in the respective ranking.

Where candidates have the same score, the youngest candidate prevails. 

Scholarships are allocated to suitable candidates based upon:

  1. the ranking position
  2. the suitability of any choices expressed by the candidate for topic scholarships

Where the candidate is found to be suitable both for a general scholarship and a topic scholarship, the Board will decide which scholarship to allocate, taking account of the overall assessment, the qualifications and the documentation submitted.
