If you're currently studying or have recently completed your studies, our student or graduate opportunities (fellowships) could be the ones for you.
Both student and fellow opportunities are published for several months, with the selection panels meeting twice a year, with committees in May and November/December.
Ace your application!
To get your application right, first check out our CV tips and tricks below as well as our tips for applying before you get started. Make sure you read all the information carefully and follow our lead. For students, the following video will give you some helpful advice to get you started.
I've submitted my application, what happens next?
Once your application has been received and provided you meet the eligibility criteria, you will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your application. Then it's a waiting game until the committee meets, with the additional step for students of the opportunity to complete a web-based video interview in which you will be able to further motivate your application and the reasons you wish to join this unique Organisation.
Final decisions regarding application outcomes come a few days after the selection committees have taken place.
And a final thought...
Please remember you are applying for a place on a student or fellowship programme, not for specific positions. Hiring managers will browse the pool of all applications for their projects. We receive 1000's of top-class applications for only a couple hundred places on the student and fellow programmes, so managing one's expectations is key.
Owing to the generic nature of these programmes and the volume of applications we receive, we are therefore unable to give tailored feedback to applicants in the event you're not successful. But don't be disheartened, persevere and try again!
