    If the deadline is 12.03.2016, for example, and the interviews are on the 20.04.2016, when would the applicants be notified? I know that this depends on the Uni, but it would be great to know what to expect in general.

    Agree with the other poster, 1-2 weeks before.

    From my experience, the interviews I have attended sent me invites exactly 1 week before the interview and one uni sent me an invite 2 weeks before. So I would say between 1-2 weeks before interview date.

    For the two PhD interviews I did I was given 2-3 weeks notice and the deadline was roughly a month or two before the interview day.
