Application process

The programme is highly competitive and our application process is very thorough to ensure that we are confident our Undergraduates are able to succeed academically and professionally.  We do not currently use the UCAS application system and, of course, you are welcome to apply and hold offers from other institutions whilst applying to The Dyson Institute.

We are currently reviewing our admissions process and will publish information on this prior to applications opening on 10th January 2020. Please register an interest, if you would like to be notified when this information is made available.

The final stage will continue to be an assessment day, held at our campus in Malmesbury.


Final Stage – Assessment Day

Our final stage is an assessment day at our campus in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.  This final round of assessment will comprise of  group based exercises and interviews.  The activities will enable us to observe your behaviour in a team-working environment and focus on specific areas highlighted through previous stages and your aspirations. 

In addition, the day allows applicants to get a feel for the environment we work in, meet key people, including some of our current Undergraduate Engineers, and to get a better understanding of life here at The Dyson Institute and within Dyson itself. 

Our assessment days will take place between Monday 30th March and Wednesday 15th April 2020 and offers will be made by the end of April 2020.


Following the assessment day, The Dyson Institute team will hold a moderation meeting to review and discuss our final stage applicants against a scoring matrix. You can then expect to hear from us with the outcome of your application by email or phone within 14 days (or 14 days of the final assessment day if a number of assessment days are held in close succession). For September 2020 entry, our offers will be made by the end of April 2020.
