Selection days form part of the application process and take place between January and March each year.

Selection days for BM4, BM5 and BM6 will take place between January and March 2021.

Due to the nature of the interviews you will not be able to choose your selection date.

Invitations to each selection day will be sent out 1-2 weeks before that selection day. If a space on a selection day becomes available through cancellation, individual applicants maybe receive an invitation with a shorter notice period.

Please note due to the high volume of applications we are unable to inform unsuccessful applicants that they will not be invited prior to the selection dates.
