Hi all,

I've applied for the Wellcome graduate scheme for entry September 2019! I don't think we can expect feedback until the end of November, but just thought I would start a thread for discussion regarding the application process as it moves forward

Hi all,

Nice to see this thread appear! I've pretty much finished my application form but will probably just sit on it for a bit to make sure I like my answers... What rotations are people looking at? I've put down Innovations/ Humanities & Social Sciences/ Policy/ Wellcome Collection

Exactly the same here!

Submitted my application a few weeks ago so been waiting a while now.

Best of luck!

Really hoping to get a positive response - I really like their work and the scheme looks great!

Oh cool! Yeah I think it all looks really interesting and very different to a lot of the other grad schemes. I was unsucessful at the last stage for summer internships and so I'm really hoping for a positive result this time around (although I've heard it's veryyyy competitive!). Good luck to you too! Have you applied for any other grad schemes?

I've applied for the Fast Stream and keeping my eyes open for some other charity ones also. I didn't apply for the summer internship but yep I've heard the scheme is very competitive!

How about you?

Oh, nice! I'm a bit lost with what else to apply for but am looking at stuff in the area of social impact (think there's one called Worthwhile) or government. Just got knocked out of the Fast Stream myself but I think it looks interesting- hope your application goes better than mine on that one haha

Seems that everyone on this thread has applied for the general programme. By any chance did any of you apply for both schemes- general and investments? If only investments has anyone received a reply or moved on to the next stage yet?

I swear we apply to the same stuff...Haha.

Wellcome has been on my list for ages. I did a good chunk of my masters on global health law and my dossertation was on international pandemic policy and multidisciplinary approaches, so excited something like Wellcome is around. Fits my interests so well. ๐Ÿ˜

I may be wrong but I seem to remember hearing on the live stream they did last week that they were aiming to send decisions by 16th December (or at the latest 21st December)!

Generalist, (Policy, Humanities and Social Sciences, Culture and Society Directorate, and grants) and need to finish off my app though. Been lazy and focussing on HM treasury and CSFS not gonna lie. Super interested in their policy section at Wellcome. I know deadline is 23rd don't worry!

It looks like it'll be around the 20th of December in the email they sent today. Long wait! Best to forget about it and be pleasantly surprised later!
