Tackling oversubscription of the foundation programme

The UK foundation programme has been oversubscribed every year since 2011, and this year the number of applicants without a place is the highest yet. In January, the UK Foundation Programme Office (UKFPO) said that it had received 399 more applications than the number of places available for the 2015 foundation programme.1 In February, it was announced that 95% of applicants to the 2015 foundation programme had been allocated training places.1 Following the allocations there are currently 352 applicants on the reserve list pending allocation over the coming months.2
