We recruit based on potential, not just previous achievement, and a big part of our programme involves developing self-awareness. Some of our best students do not initially identify themselves as potential future leaders.

So, if you have met and worked with a Sheffield engineering student who you think could be a future engineering leader in research or industry, help them to recognise that potential by nominating them to join the SELA programme.

To be eligible, students must currently be in the first year of a four year undergraduate Master's programme, or intending to transfer to a Master's programme before the September in which they will join SELA.

Students who are nominated will receive a personal invitation to apply to join our programme.

Nominations for Cohort 2018 will open in January 2018. Please check back then to submit a nomination.
