How to apply

If you are interested in applying for the MTI scheme please familiarise yourself with the process below.

  1. Ensure that you meet the minimum eligibility criteria.  

  2. Get in touch with the relevant sponsoring body (medical royal college or NHS organisation) to register your interest in the scheme.

    Each sponsoring body will have its own requirements and timescales for applications.

  3. If your application is successful, your sponsoring body will arrange your GMC registration and apply to the relevant deanery for approval.

  4. Your sponsoring body will then submit the MTI application form and supporting evidence to the Academy MTI team who will be able to process the application and issue the Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) within five working days (subject to availability of CoS allocation).

    The Academy MTI team will send the CoS to your royal college or employing trust who will contact you. Please do not contact the Academy MTI team directly about your application. Your sponsoring body will be able to assist you.

  5. When you have received your CoS you can apply for your Temporary Work – Government Authorised Exchange (GAE) visa and arrange starting employment within the UK.
