Have you got what it takes?

Click through the boxes below to find out more about how to apply.

  • Entry requirements

    The requirements for September 2019 entry will be confirmed shortly. For September 2018 entry, you needed at least AAB at A Level (or equivalent), including an A grade in Mathematics and one other Science, Technology or Engineering-related subject.

  • What we're looking for

    Dyson is a high-pressure environment – we’re looking for engineers with dedication and huge potential. If you thrive on challenge and are excited by change, it could be for you.

    If you’ve got the tenacity, creativity and perseverance it takes to be a Dyson engineer, we want to hear from you. The application process is your first of many chances to demonstrate your potential.

  • Application process

    There are four stages of assessment. It might sound like a lot, but we’re looking long-term – we need to be sure you’re the type of person who’ll succeed at Dyson.

    Click here to find out more about the four stages of assessment.

  • Application requirements

    When completing the first stage of assessment after registering your interest, you will need the following:
    An example of a design, technology or engineering project you’ve worked on, either in your own time, or as part of your studies
    – Details of any holidays you currently have planned within the next 12 months
    – Your CV
    – Your portfolio (optional)

    Please note – you’re able to close the form and re-open it to complete later. We would advise writing your responses elsewhere first, then copying them into the form (in case it times out). You won’t be able to edit or review your application after submitting, so ensure you’re happy with your responses before submitting.

  • Dates

    Applications for the September 2019 intake have not yet opened. The application window will close when the right candidates have been found for the spaces available.

    Once offers have been made, successful applicants will be invited to a Pre-joining Day in the summer, ahead of starting the programme in September. This gives you the opportunity to meet all the Undergraduate Engineers who will join you on the course ahead of the start date. The next cohort of Dyson Institute Undergraduate Engineers will start in early September 2019. ​

  • Non-academic requirements

    As well as having an academically strong background, we’re looking for people who are passionate about engineering and technology. You’ll need to be a creative problem solver, an excellent team-player and a great communicator. You’ll also need to be self-aware, and self-managing in your approach to work and study.

  • Communication from Dyson

    If you haven’t heard from us in a little while, don’t worry. You will be notified by email after completing each stage as to whether or not you have been successful.

    Please make sure you register with an email address that you have access to beyond the end of the academic year and during holidays, and ideally one that you check regularly.

  • Higher education options

    The Dyson Institute is different to university and as such we are not currently linked to UCAS. You're welcome to apply to other routes of Higher Education using UCAS while also applying to The Dyson Institute.
