    Apply to EFLP 2017

    Given the degree of investment in terms of time and energy involved, we need to ensure that the right people attend FiL programmes. Accordingly, there are three phases to FiL's application process:

    Phase 1

    Complete the online application form. The deadline for the 2017 programme is.


    Phase 2  

    If your phase 1 application meets our criteria you will be notified and asked to attend an interview plus an informal discussion event in London.


    Phase 3

    Often run proceeding Phase 2 interviews, applicants take pat in an observed group task. Applicants will be notified of the nature of the group assessment prior to your arrival.


    Maintaining diversity inevitably means that some very able applicants will not be accepted. FIL endeavours to ensure that applicants who are not offered a place on FiL’s 2018 programme understand that their non-acceptance is neither a personal rejection nor a reflection on the calibre of the candidate.
