The interviews will take place in the week of 9 – 13 December 2019. If successful at interview, applicants will then be shortlisted, with the final selection being made by a panel of Hornby Trust trustees and British Council staff. If provisionally selected for a scholarship, applicants will then need to apply for a place on the MA course at Warwick University and demonstrate that they have the level of English proficiency required by the university. The award of an A S Hornby Educational Trust scholarship can only be confirmed once the applicant has been accepted on the course by the university.
