Important update 

Change of date for release of eligibility application outcomes for the Foundation Programme 2023

The eligibility application window for the 2023 UK Foundation programme closed on Friday 29 July and we have received a very high number of applications. 

In order to process all the applications, we have decided to extend the application screening window which means there will be a short delay in the release of the application outcomes. Applicants can now expect to hear about the outcome of their application on Thursday 11 August 2022.

Eligibility Appeals window – new date for opening

The extension of the screening window means that we will now open the eligibility appeals window on 11 August 2022. So that applicants are not disadvantaged we will extend the closing date for the appeals window to Thursday 18 August. 

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause.
