Successful Applicants to Severn Foundation School

Congratulations on your allocation to the Severn Foundation School.

For more information on the Severn Foundation School, please see our website and Welcome Fair Presentation (letter will be circulated after 8th March 2018).

The next stage in the process is to identify your programme preferences via the online application system Oriel

All Severn Foundation Programmes detailed on Oriel (the national application system) are available as a Programme List.  Please note this is an indicative list and programmes can be changed.

Applicants will be allocated to programme based on the highest score to highest available preference, ie the highest scoring applicant gets their first choice of programme, the next highest scoring gets their first choice (unless it has already been taken) etc, etc.

There are 265 available programmes of linked F1 and F2 posts within the Severn Foundation School.

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO RANK ALL PROGRAMMES IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE BY MONDAY 26 MARCH (12.00 noon). If you have not ranked your preferences by this time, you will be randomly allocated to a programme.

Histogram of Application Scores is available. This details the scores of applicants allocated to Severn.

Please note that allocation to foundation school and programme is subject to the following:

  • Successful completion of your medical undergraduate degree (where applicable)
  • Satisfactory pre-employment checks
  • Satisfactory references
  • Successful completion of national clinical assessment (where applicable)

For the General FP application process, Severn will not be using interviews to allocate applicants to programme.  Successful applicants will be asked to rank programmes online, then allocated using the score by which they were allocated to Foundation School.

We will place Linked applicants within an hour's commute of each other.  The score of the lower scoring applicant will be used to allocate both linked applicants to programme.  The Foundation School will use the AA Route Planner as a basis for making decisions during the programme allocation process, and would suggest that applicants linking their applications do the same.  Trust postcodes are available from the Trust Profiles on our Trusts webpage

Please also see our Frequently Asked Questions page.

If, having read the information available, you have further queries or questions about training please email the Severn Foundation School.
