28th March - 21st April 2024

The first stage is an online application form to collect basic information about you and your academic background. You will also be asked to submit a copy of your CV and latest academic transcript. 

Please ensure that you meet, or are predicted to meet, our entry requirements before applying.

25th April - 5th May 2024

The online assessment includes three activities and are designed to give you a variety of assessment styles, to demonstrate your skills and aptitude, and give a holistic insight into your potential. 

.

These short games-style activities assess how you work with information and people, your personality and work style, to see if you have the right attributes to be successful as a Postgraduate Engineer. This assessment will last approximately 10 minutes. 

 

.

The interview will include seven questions and last approximately 30 minutes. 

Five questions will relate to the skills and behaviours outlined in our non-academic entry criteria.

Two questions will be focused on your passion for software engineering, and motivation to start your career at Dyson. 

.

This assessment is a scenario-based programming exercise and gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your current technical abilities. 

10th - 14th June 2024

The assessment day will be held in person at the Dyson campus in Malmesbury. The morning will include multiple assessments, and the afternoon will be an opportunity to meet current students and Dyson Institute staff. We don’t want finance to be a barrier to anyone attending these events and will reimburse travel expenses. 

Admissions support

We don't want background to be a barrier to anyone applying or reaching their full potential in our admissions process. Find out more about the applicant support we offer below.

.

We'll host webinars for each stage of the admissions process. Check out our events for information about our upcoming Virtual Open Day. Once you've applied, you'll be invited to the webinars for the subsequent stages.

• UK (exc. NI) applicants – up to £150
• Northern Irish and European applicants – up to £250

The Dyson Institute joining bursary offers individual bursaries of £1,000 to students who may need support with some of the costs of Higher Education – such as travelling to their new home and participating in social events.

More information on how to apply for the bursary, and the supporting evidence needed, will be shared with you if you are offered a place at the Dyson Institute.

We welcome applications from individuals with disabilities, learning differences or additional support needs. We encourage applicants to discuss their potential requirements with us as early as possible in the admissions process, to ensure that reasonable adjustments can be made to both the admissions process and to the work and study experience if successful.

.

Applicants with disabilities or additional support needs will be assessed against the same criteria as all other participants in the application process. Their declared needs or any reasonable adjustments made to the assessment process will not impact the decisions made throughout the assessment process.

.

We will ask for details of your disability or additional support needs within the application form, to enable us to review and consider appropriate reasonable adjustments. However, if you need to make us aware of these prior to submitting an application, please send an e-mail with your contact information and the nature of your request to admissions@dysoninstitute.ac.uk. Determinations of requests for reasonable adjustments are made on a case-by-case basis.

.

Reasonable adjustments will vary depending on the individual and their learning difference and/or disability. Some examples of adjustments previously made are: additional preparation time, screen reader use and assessment materials printed on different colours.

.

We adhere to UK Higher Education requirements and good practice in accommodating students with additional requirements, and Dyson Technology UK is an equal opportunity employer.
