Technical problems

If your problem is related to the page not loading, you might find it helpful to try the following measures:

  • Check that cookies and JavaScript are enabled on your browser
  • Shut down all browser windows and then open a fresh one
  • If dialling up on a modem, check that your internet connection is working at full capacity - sometimes if many people are using one internet provider, website pages can be slow to load and the connection will "time out" if the information is not transferred fast enough. Please be patient and try again.
  • If your application is not being saved correctly please make sure you are using the next and previous buttons to navigate through the application, rather than the navigation bar at the top of the page. Also, consider composing answers to longer questions in a word document so you can paste them into the correct field in the application form.
