Who can apply and academic requirements
You can apply for an insight day if you are a second-year student, penultimate-year student, finalist or graduate from any degree discipline.
We are looking to recruit candidates from all universities and degree disciplines. Our academic requirements are AAB at A-Level or equivalent and a 2:1 degree (obtained or predicted). We take into account mitigating circumstances and use Rare’s contextualised recruitment system enabling us to measure an individual’s performance against the average grades of their school. We review all application forms holistically, which means if you fall slightly short of our academic requirements but demonstrate great potential, you will still be considered.
Online application form
Complete a short online application form explaining why you would like to attend an insight day at Weil. All applications are screened blindly, meaning the Graduate Recruitment team member reading your application form will not know the university you are attending or have graduated from, helping to remove unconscious bias. Applications open on 1 October 2022 and close on 6 November 2022. All application will be reviewed after the deadline.

Support and adjustments
The Graduate Recruitment team is here to support you throughout the recruitment process and the insight day if offered a place. In confidence, we can discuss the individual support and adjustments you may need to help you perform at your best. A few examples of the support we can provide include, but are not limited to: providing the application form in a different format, providing presentation slides in advance, providing an interpreter or note taker on the day, scheduling regular rest breaks, booking a quiet room if required or printing copies of presentation slides. Ahead of the insight day, we will also arrange a confidential call with you to discuss what support and adjustments you may need throughout the day. We will work with you to enable you to perform at your best and get the most out of the insight day.
