Not yet. The applications are not processed until after your regional deadline has passed. If that was fairly recent, hold tight.

do you know when we get shortlisted by any chance?
Sorry it has taken me this long to get back to you. Before annawelchh mentioned it, I did not even know you can get shortlisted. I suppose it varies from region to region. From what I've heard so far from the Nuffield staff in my region, there is no shortlist or assessment stage; however, they did mention that if selected, your host organisation may wish to assess you separately. At this point, you would have already been selected so this would serve more as a way for the host to gain a more in-depth understanding of your abilities.
Moreover, the deadline for me was 29/30 March, although they did mention that they will start matching up applications with host organisations from 26 March. It seems like it really does vary from region to region so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Hope this helps😊

Sounds interesting! Is stage 3 the last stage? Or are there more stages afterwards?

Good luck to everyone on your applications! I did my placement (online 🙃) last year with a researcher from the uni of Oxford; If you need any help with applications or have questions about the experience, i’m more than happy to help out as best as I can

I'm in Northern Ireland and found out that I've been successful - but they haven't matched me with a placement yet? Did anyone else apply from Northern Ireland?

Congratulations on getting in! You're the first person I know to have heard back about a final decision. Unfortunately, I am not applying from Northern Ireland and do not know anyone else who is.

What subject choices did you put down if you don't mind me asking?

I put down biomed, biology and biochem. I think it might work differently in Northern Ireland? We got told to submit applications as soon as possible and by the end of the Christmas holidays, although the official deadline was April

I’m not in London, I’m applying for the south east but I think the personal statement was alright, but honestly took me ages to work out where to start🤣 How did you find it?

I think it just said they would advise around 500 words but it didn’t matter if you went over it or were slightly over it. Same though, I think mine was about 700 whoops lol

It depends on the course you're going to do as well, if you want to do biomed i think they are going to be more strict with the personal statement due to the competitive nature of it

They dont really have an issue with the personal statement overall but if it is really overboard like for instance 800 words then it would be quite concerning. But it also depends on the quality of ur personal statement e.g if it is wordy or not
