Find out about the programme


These are fresh opportunities to be part of our 2017 intake, due to increased interest from NHS and Local Authority partners. If you previously applied for the 2017 intake and were unsuccessful, you cannot apply for these places. (You will be able to apply to join the 2018 intake when applications open on 4 September 2017.)

These places are available exclusively in Luton and Newcastle / Gateshead. (If more candidates meet our standards than we have places available, some will be placed on our reserve list. Reserve list members may be offered a place in any location in 2018, or in 2017 in the event that other candidates currently allocated to the 2017 intake do not fulfil the conditions of their offer.)

Applications will close at 17:00 on Tuesday 2 May. The earlier you apply, the greater your chance of success, because we will invite candidates to our assessment centres as soon as they pass the online selection stages. (The assessment centres will be in central London on 15 and 26 May.)
