    Has anyone else applied for the Ambitious Futures programme?

    I had a telephone interview on Sunday and got a confusing email yesterday telling me that they've finished reviewing the results of my interview and are now considering me for a place at an Assessment Centre.

    Anyone heard anything more?

    Hello everyone,

    I have also applied for the programme. Had my telephone interview in November and had the same email as you guys. Not had any correspondence since. Which universities are you applying through?

    Hey,
    I had my phone interview on Sunday and today I received this email:
    Thank you for participating in your recent telephone interview.

    After reviewing your telephone interview results, we have placed your application on hold. We have received a large volume of applications for our Graduate Programme and whilst we were impressed with several aspects of your application, we felt that other candidates demonstrated more of the required skills and behaviours.

    We would like to keep your application on hold and will be back in touch with a further update as soon as we can.

    Thank you for your continued interest and patience in the meantime.


    Has anyone received anything similar to this?

    Hey! still nothing more from them... I also keep checking the AF portal which displays a similar message:

    "Congratulations! You have been successful in your telephone interview and are now being considered for an Assessment Centre. We will be in touch with an update as soon as possible"

    It seems positive but also pretty vague! Will be very disappointed now if I don't get a place at the assessment centre......

    I'm applying through UCL how about you?

    I'm applying through Glasgow.

    I'm considering emailing to ask if that "Congratulations..." message thing means we're through to the Assessment Centre. If it does I feel like I should be preparing, but I don't want to prepare and then be told I'm not actually through... On the other hand I don't want to hassle them!

    I am confused too about whether the message means we are actually through to an assessment centre or not... will just have to wait and see I guess, hope we find out soon.

    Im applying through the University of Aberdeen. The message is so vague but I am a bit worried now considering the assessment centre is meant to be in February :/

    I just got an email that says "Our Assessment Centres are scheduled to run throughout February and March and we will be letting you know the outcome of your telephone interviews week commencing 26th January." So that must mean they haven't actually told us the outcome of our interviews yet!

    Anyone get the same thing?

    Yes I got the same thing. Don't feel clearer at all.

    Me too! Perhaps we have been successful but they want to provide feedback for the face to face interview?

    Anyone heard anything yet? I've still had nothing through, but I saw they tweeted that the first Assessment Centre is on the 6th Feb. Hopefully people down for such an early one have been told by now...

    Hello

    I've still not had any word yet. I've been keeping an eye out on their twitter too and that worried me! Hopefully we are given a choice of dates!

    Hello everyone,

    I am in the same boat as everyone else it seems. Received the same ambiguous and vague email and still in the dark about the outcome of my telephone interview and place at an assessment centre.

    Although I must say it is heartening to see that other people are in the same situation.

    Please keep posting!
