Admission forms and fees

November 2020

The application for admission is in mySRA. You will need to login to your mySRA account to apply and choose which route applies to you.

The steps are

  • Pre-admission screening – must be taken before the character and suitability assessment.
  • Admission application – includes the character and suitability rules assessment.

There is an option to complete an Early Character Suitability assessment prior to admission if you think you may have issues.

First, you must have completed your pre-admission screening which is a separate process, carried out by Atlantic Data.

Payment

You will need to allow a minimum of four weeks for this to be completed. The fee is £39.

Our service level

We aim to get back to you within four weeks.

If you have disclosed an issue under the Suitability Rules or if there is an issue on your pre-screening checks, your application will need to be considered by a caseworker. Where this applies it can take up to six months to make a decision on your application.

You will need to get a mySRA account if you don't already have one.
