Steps to apply

Before you apply, make sure you have reviewed our eligibility criteria. The application must be submitted online and should take 10 – 15 minutes. Once you have started, you will be able to save and return to the application at a later time if necessary. You will be able to edit your application once it has been submitted until the deadline passes. If you need to make any more changes after this point, please email [email protected] with the correct information as soon as possible.

1. Pick a course. Browse the courses and universities on offer. You can only apply to for one course, so make sure you select your top choice and ensure you will be available on the dates. Remember all travel costs are covered by the programme, so you don’t need to worry about the distance. Please check you meet the subject specific course requirements.

2. Once applications open, create an online account and begin your application. In order to register, you will need to confirm you are in the correct year group, have always attended a state-funded school, and are not enrolled on another Sutton Trust programme. Once you have entered your information, you will be sent a link to create a password- don’t forget to check your spam folder!

3. Fill in the application form. The application will ask questions on:

      • Your current school and academic profile
      • Your parent(s)/guardian(s)

4. Choose a teacher reference. This can be either a current or past teacher, as long as they will be able to verify your grades, and details on your background. They will receive a request as soon as you submit your application, and you will be notified once they have verified your applications. Please note, once verification is complete you will no longer be able to edit your application. Please contact [email protected]com with any changes that need to be made.

Survey deadlines

If you’re unsure about applying, just do it. There isn't just one type of student a university wants - if you love your subject and you're ambitious, you're the type of student universities wants. As cheesy as it sounds, believe in yourself. The only way you 100% won't get a space on a programme is if you don't apply.
