UKFP 2018 Application Process

Key dates for FP / AFP 2019 and the UKFP 2019 Applicant Handbook is available here.

To apply for the Foundation Programme and Academic Foundation Programme, first you need to ensure you are eligible to apply. If you graduated (or are graduating) from a UK medical school after the 01 August 2017, your medical school will confirm your eligibility on your behalf. If you are graduating from a medical school outside of the UK, or graduated from a UK school prior to 01 August 2017, you will need to submit an eligibility application to the UKFPO. Refer to the UKFP 2018 eligibility information page for more information.

You will be required to complete an online application form and will be expected to sit the SJT. If you are applying for an AFP your SJT score will not be used to allocate you to a AUoA - however all AFP offers are subject to a satisfactory SJT score.

For more information on the application process please read the UKFP 2019 Applicant's Handbook, application presentation and person specification which will be published on the website in June 2018.
