Our university partners will check incoming application forms and confirm which applicants meet their entrance criteria.

The schools will then select and inform candidates that they wish to interview.



The selected applicants will then be invited for interview at one of the partnership schools. You may be asked to bring evidence of identity and qualifications and to prepare a 5 minute presentation in advance.

During the day you will be asked to plan and lead a discussion with a group of KS3 students.

You will have the opportunity to tour the school, to chat with current trainees, staff and students and to ask any questions you have regarding our programme.

All candidates will have a formal interview with at least two representatives from partnership schools, one of whom will be a subject specialist. The universities may also have a representative on the interview panel.


Candidates will be informed by the University within 5 working days of the interview whether they have been successful or not.

For candidates not offered a training place, feedback on their interview performance will be available from the University.
