The APP is our core programme and is completely free of charge. It’s open to motivated, ambitious students from less privileged backgrounds in Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Nottingham.
There have never been more young people applying to university and graduate jobs are extremely competitive. The APP is designed to support hard working students who might not have family members with the relevant educational or career experience to guide them. If you’re bright and determined, but not sure how to get to where you want in terms of university and jobs, we can help. We want to give you the opportunities to show your potential no matter what your background is. Here at the SMF we are proud that the majority of our students go on to the top universities in the UK and undertake experiences and opportunities with us that help them gain employment in prestigious organisations.
