How to apply

Please complete and submit our online application form to apply. Please save as you go, as the form can be completed over several sessions. 

We recommend you apply at least three months before the programme starts to guarantee your place.

How long does it take to apply?

The application form should take 15-30 minutes to complete.

How will my application be acknowledged?

We’ll acknowledge receipt of your application by email within 48 hours, if the application is received during normal working hours (Mon-Fri 09.00-18.00 GMT).


Reserving a place


If you are unable to apply immediately, reserve a provisional place online. It will be held for up to two weeks while you complete your application.

This will secure a reservation for your preferred programme start date, which could mean the difference between you starting in one cohort or another as programmes become fully subscribed months in advance.

You can also reserve a place by calling +44 (0)20 7000 7051 or email

Please note that acceptance onto the programme is not automatic and applications are considered in order of receipt. 

Language requirements


As the programme is conducted in English, a good working knowledge of the language is essential. If English is not your first language, we may require evidence of your proficiency.



To avoid a cancellation or transfer fee, we must receive your cancellation, in writing, no less than six weeks before the programme starts.
