Before you apply

The pages in this section provide additional detail on important topics which are relevant before you submit your application. There are almost 40 pages, which we have categorised as:

The pages include links to external sites, reference documents and explanatory text; many also provide links to other areas of the site, where related information can be found.

We have created these to give you extra detail on key themes and many of them can be reached from more than one page in the site.

We have also made them searchable, are creating a search category of Resources, and have grouped them together on this page for ease of access.
