This is where you start becoming an NMITE Engineer!
There are two ways to apply to NMITE
Applying through UCAS
Register for an account in the UCAS Hub. You’ll then be taken to your UCAS Hub dashboard where you’ll see a tile called ‘Your application’. Click ‘Start’ to begin your application. Please familiarise yourself with the UCAS deadlines to ensure you submit your application on time.
Applying directly to NMITE
Register an account on the NMITE website. Once you’ve registered, you’ll be asked to complete our application form and provide a 500-word personal statement. Your diversity monitoring information will not be seen by those making the decision on your application.
What happens next
Once we receive your application, we will assess your academic potential based on your qualifications, grades and your statement to find out more about you as an individual and your motivation for studying at NMITE.
We may contact you if you haven’t provided sufficient information in your application or personal statement. The academic team may wish to invite you to complete a one-to-one interview to understand your passion and potential for studying the programme.
If English is not your first language, we will ask you to provide evidence of English language proficiency (typically an IELTS certificate).
If you are applying without formal qualifications but have relevant experiential learning of at least three years, your application will be considered through the Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPEL) procedure. Once we receive your application, we will ask you to provide a portfolio and supporting evidence.
By registering an account, you are giving consent for NMITE to process the information you provide in accordance with NMITE’s Privacy Notice for Enquirers and Applicants. A printable Quick Guide to NMITE’s Application Process is available here.
If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to participate in a Selection Day at NMITE. These events are held via an online platform and typically last about an hour. Details of the date and time and further information will be provided via email.
Applicants will receive written communication from the admissions team following each stage of the process by the timescales provided in NMITE’s Admissions Policy.
At NMITE, we have a two-stage application process. After you have completed your Initial Application (Stage 1) we evaluate your suitability for your programme of choice, taking into consideration your education history – academic and language qualifications, and written statement. Overall, this is to assess your academic potential, motivation, and core skills for studying your chosen programme. If you are successful in your Stage 1, we then invite you to the second stage of our process: to participate in a Selection session. Selection session provides an opportunity for you to get to know NMITE in greater depth and for us to get to know you above and beyond your application. These events can happen online or in person.
We are confident that anyone whom we invite to the Stage 2 is qualified to attend NMITE and has the potential to be a successful, contributing member of our community. Therefore, Selection session is about learning more about you in the context of NMITE’s unique, highly collaborative setting. This information allows us to craft a cohort of incoming students that will be cohesive but diverse. After all, we are looking to create an outstanding community, not just a group of outstanding individuals!
The Selection session as well as being part of the selection process will give you the opportunity to find out more about NMITE. During the Stage 2 you will meet some NMITE staff and other applicants and take part in an activity designed to assess your suitability for the programme – including factors such team-working, communication, passion, curiosity, and grit - these selection activities will include practical sessions and group work.
After all components of our selection process have been completed, the NMITE admissions team will meet again and make the final admission decision. You will be then notified directly (via email) and provided a written outcome.
As with the application, we aren’t looking for one specific set of characteristics during the Selection process. Our goal is to get to know you better and to see how you work in a collaborative setting, so again, the best advice is to just be you!
