When you click submit, a successful submission will take you to a page confirming this and you should also receive a confirmation email (you may need to check your spam folder for this email).

If the application form page refreshes after you click submit, this means you have incorrectly filled in a field. Please take time to go back and make sure you have filled in everything correctly. Common application form errors are:
