What if I am not eligible?
The application process is spilt into two stages:
Complete the application form. You should upload your CV and two references.
- One reference should be academic,
- The second reference should speak about your skills.
If you’re not currently in education, then you can provide a professional reference rather than an academic reference. You need to also provide proof you’ve received a 2.1 or above in your undergraduate.
- If you've taken part in one of our partner programmes, you need to upload evidence of your participation.
- We do not accept references from family members. Please see our rules on applying for more information.
We will check your eligibility and invite successful applicants to the next stage.
In December we will invite eligible applicants to complete a pre-recorded video. The video interview will ask you a set of questions and set the amount of time you have to think about the question and reply. You will be assessed against our strength profile, which is set out here. The second stage will be from 5 December to midnight on 12 December 2018
We encourage applications from mature applicants and applicants with disabilities.If you are unable to apply online or discuss any adjustments you may require during the process please contact in confidence Daisy Mortimer, Outreach Coordinator.
