Network75 is outside of the UCAS application process; therefore it will not count as one of your 'choices'.
Your application is sent to host companies. Therefore, it is important to make a good impression to maximise your chance of being shortlisted for interview:
The Experience and Achievements section of your application is very important; this is your opportunity to sell yourself to potential host companies. Concentrate on achievements that are the most relevant to the degree area/career you are applying for. You should highlight your responsibilities, strengths, and skills. When writing this section, think about:
If you are currently studying at a school/college/university please provide at least 1 referees details who can provide your predicted grades. This person is usually Head of Sixth Form, a Personal Tutor, or the Head of Department/Course.
Please note: All applications must be word-processed. Handwritten applications will not be accepted.
Network75 will keep you updated on the progress of your application by email, so it is important you check your inbox on a regular basis. Below gives a brief outline of the application process as well as an approximate timeline of each stage:
Applicants who are unsuccessful in securing a placement at a host company have the option to study at USW full time on their chosen course (subject to entry requirements being met). They will then be able to be reconsidered for the scheme the following academic year. Applicants who choose this option will need to be self-funded for any years they undertake full time study, i.e. through tuition fee loans/grant etc.
