Admissions for January 2018 are open.
About the application
Please read the information below before you start your application. This will give you a better idea of how the application process works and what you will need to provide. Please contact our Recruitment Manager for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Full descriptions of the application components are given at the end of this page.
Stage 1 – Start the process
Sloan Fellows have many demands on their time. When you have done your research and are ready to start the process please provide a completed application form, essays, CV, academic documents (certificate or transcripts if available), one recommendation and the application fee.
The Admissions Committee will make a shortlisting decision on this information or seek further clarification. We will make a decision for an interview or provide feedback on your candidacy. Following a successful interview the Admissions Committee will work with you to complete the application.
Stage 2 - Timing your application
Deadlines – give yourself time to go through the admissions process and then plan your next steps
Applying early allows you to manage your arrangements with your organisation and if necessary plan your relocation to London. If you need to apply outside of the published deadlines please contact the recruitment team with your request. The preliminary decision takes around 2 weeks, and the time from interviewing to final decision will take 2-4 weeks. The process should take 6-8 weeks in all.

The Admissions Committee may recommend courses or diagnostics to be completed, as well as pre-programme work to build or hone quantitative or English skills.
