Applications for the SWW2 studentship for entry in September 2020 are now closed.


UPDATE: To all SWW DTP2 applicants:

 Given current circumstances we have received inquiries as to whether there will be a further delay in the SWW DTP2 recruitment process for this year (in addition to the delay, already announced, arising from the strikes). However, since we have already arranged for the meetings that will consider the applications to take place remotely, it is our intention to maintain Friday 24th April as the date on which you will hear the result of your SWW DTP2 application. We will let you know immediately if that changes.
