We recruit based on potential, not just previous achievement. We want to hear from you if:

  • you are currently in your first year of study on an undergraduate Master programme (e.g. MEng) in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sheffield, or you're planning to transfer to a Master programme
  • you think you have got what it takes to become a leader in research or industry
  • you are committed to realising your leadership potential, through dedicating at least four hours per week to the programme.

Applications for SELA Cohort 2018 are now closed. Applications for SELA Cohort 2019 will open in January 2019.
