Open Enrolment

Step 1: Application Form, CV and Letter of Professional Reference

The application form covers questions regarding your motivation, career aspirations and experience. We also ask that you submit your CV at the same time as your application form.

You will also be required to submit a referee letter at this time. Please liaise with your referee on how to submit his/her letter of reference. As a rule, letters of reference should highlight your professional experience, as well as your potential to positively contribute as a Saltire Fellow.

Step 2: Alumni Interview

The Saltire Fellowship Alumni Interview is a one-to-one or small group meeting between a candidate and a graduated/current Fellow.

Interviews are both evaluative and informative, allowing candidates the opportunity to comfortably interact one-on-one with a Fellow, while allowing the Alumni Interviewer to share information about the Fellowship, as well as about their individual experience. The interview is an unmarked part of the admissions process but the feedback from the interview will be taken into consideration during the candidate's application review.

Step 3: Assessment Centre

The assessment centre consists of a job-style interview, a group activity, a 2-minute pitch, and a presentation and discussion of a case study. It will be performed over a half-day and you will get an opportunity to speak to previous Fellows and Saltire Foundation team members over lunch.

Key Dates
