the MRL Application process

Applications close on 31 January 2020 at 5 p.m. You can review the questionnaire and application form here. If you wish to discuss MRL then call the Programme’s Directors: Stephen Feber on +44 (0)7515 338535 or Nick Winterbotham on +44 (0)7775 774539. 

Things to bear in mind:

  • MRL is a fantastic opportunity - it is frequently described as ‘life changing’ for powerful reasons. So, consider your application carefully and if you choose to apply do not to do so at the last moment. You have a 3 month application window.

  • Experience has shown that returning to edit an application on the Survey Monkey platform is not completely reliable. This is for technical reasons linked to the way IP addresses work. You are therefore advised to complete your application in a single session and in a quiet and distraction free space

  • As advised in the application completion instructions you should prepare your free text answers - the 100 words or fewer answers - separately. Do not attempt to write them directly into the form; write them in Word and save them. Survey Monkey does not save your answers - if you lose your Web connection halfway through you lose your work

  • If hit the ‘Done’ button and submit an application but realise you have made a mistake contact Jo Turner; again heading your email ‘MRL 2020-2021’. We can remove applications you wish to withdraw

  • Don’t be late - late applications are not accepted. Remember - this is an online process and the W.W.W. whilst wonderful is not infallible. Finding you have lost your Internet connection at 4:45 p.m. on Friday 31st January 2020…..
