INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

Applicants who are in the UK on a visa, must have the right to work and study in the UK (including access to public funds) until the end of the programme (i.e. September 2023) at the point of application. Applicants will need to provide both their passport and their visa. 

As our programme is funded, we unfortunately cannot accept applicants who are in the UK on a Tier 4 visa.

Applicants who are successful at the assessment centre, will need to provide proof of their settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme before they can be made a formal offer. Passports must be provided before applicants can attend an assessment centre. 

FAQS

I have a UK passport but it’s expired, what evidence shall I provide?

We accept expired UK passports. This should be provided along with your other documents when requested.

My visa will expire during the programme but I’m likely to have it renewed, can I apply?

Unfortunately, you need to have the right to work and study in the UK until September 2023 in order for you to apply therefore we cannot accept applicants who cannot evidence this at the point of application. 

I no longer have documentation that shows my name change/s, is this a problem?

You will need to provide evidence of your name change where your documents do not match each other (or do not match your current name). We would therefore advise you request replacements of the relevant documentation ahead of submitting your application as these will be need to be presented when requested.
