The application is your opportunity to demonstrate some of the competencies which we think are essential for success on the programme. We recommend that you take time to consider what your best example for each question is.
Feel free to draw on professional, voluntary, personal or academic experiences. As our questions are competency based, we are more interested in the skills and behaviours you have demonstrated than the opportunities you have had. Be explicit, we cannot infer or assume.
Our screeners do not view your academic achievements until the competency questions have been assessed. The whole process is blind screened and no information is passed on from colleagues who may have spoken to you earlier in the process so it is important to demonstrate your true potential.
Remember that you are only able to complete one application per recruitment season – are you confident that your responses showcase your ability in these competencies? The first example that you think of might not be your best example.
