What happens next?

Two of our Assessors will arrange to visit you and discuss your application. Ahead of this visit we strongly recommend that you read the notes contained under More Information Documentation.

Applications are welcomed at any time but for administrative reasons we do use December 31st as an annual cut off. This allows us to scrutinise all applications and assessments and issue those successful with personal invitations ahead of a late spring/early summer award ceremony.
