Next steps

How can I help students who apply?



Students from less-advantaged backgrounds often need extra encouragement to believe in themselves. You can inspire them to see themselves on the programme.



We ask questions that allow us to understand the aspirations of the applicant. While we provide useful tips, students may want to seek advice from someone they trust.



Applicants find out if they have been accepted in early 2023. Acceptance on the programme is something that your students should be proud of. You can help us celebrate their success.
