If interested, you should start planning your application as early as possible. New application material is usually available approximately 3 months in advance of the Thouron Award deadline, and you will need to take into account what research you will need to do to help you to decide which program you wish to undertake in the U.K. Most applicants usually start this process during late summer prior to the deadline. Please also ensure you take into account that most U.K. degrees do not require standardized testing, so check with each individual program coordinator.
