YEAR HERE IS FOR CURIOUS AND CREATIVE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE AMBITIOUS ABOUT MAKING SOCIETY BETTER.
Our Fellows come from all sorts of backgrounds and bring an incredibly diverse set of skills and experiences to the programme. What unites them is their brilliant personal qualities – like resourcefulness, humility and resilience – and their passion for social action.
Applicants who meet the eligibility criteria listed below are invited to make an online application, complete a video interview and come along to a selection workshop.

To be eligible to apply to Year Here, you will need to satisfy the following minimum requirements:
- Demonstrable academic achievement
- Eligibility to work and volunteer in the EU
- Ability to commit to the dates of the programme and live in London for the duration
- Willingness to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) check
We value intellect and critical thinking as a key cornerstone of social leadership. As a result, the majority of our Fellows will be graduates with a 2:1 or above but we recognise that academic success is only one indicator of potential. If you don’t have a 2:1 or didn't go to university in the first place but think you have what it takes to take part then lodge an application.
WE SELECT FELLOWS THAT BEST FIT THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA.
Humility – Knowing that the world doesn't revolve around you.
Resilience – The ability to persevere through the tough times.
Courage – The boldness to go against the grain and push yourself out of your comfort zone.
Ingenuity – Creative, inventive thinking when faced with tough problems.
Resourcefulness – Readily taking responsibility and grabbing every opportunity to make things better.
Curiosity – A love of learning, in and outside of the classroom.
Compassion – Empathising with and caring about other people.
