Applicant requirements

Applicants must demonstrate their ability to think critically and be open to exploring ideas through reading, discussion, debate and observation. Typically a bachelor’s degree in a relevant discipline would be expected. Applicants must be able to articulate ideas and arguments well, typically demonstrated through a degree requiring significant written work. And very importantly, good humour, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude to ensure the journey is stimulating and enjoyable.

Application process

Send your full CV, a written piece from your degree program (e.g. thesis, final project, major essay) and a one-page description of your interests and goals from the mentorship. Should the proposal be of interest, an online meeting will be arranged to discuss the process further.
