Your certificate of sponsorship

What do I need to provide?

When you apply, we'll ask you for the details of your GMC approved sponsor. At this point, your sponsor will already have made an assessment against their scheme and approved your sponsorship offer.

Once you've submitted the application, your sponsor will need to confirm your sponsorship offer by completing a certificate of sponsorship and sending this to us by email.


To be eligible for this route, you must have been engaged in medical practice for three out of the last five years, including the most recent 12 months.

We advise that you continue to practise throughout this process. Note that we don't count clinical attachments or observerships as medical practice.
