Can I apply if I need a work permit?

You must have the right to live and work in the UK for all of the Markel University programmes. 

Unfortunately we cannot accept your application if you do not currently hold proof of right to work in the UK.

We are unable to support visa applications.

If you are unsure or would like more information about your right to work in the UK, please go to the Gov.uk website 

Can I defer my application for a year?

No. If you do want to take time off between graduating and starting your career, you will need to submit your application for the year you can start work.

Are there any overseas opportunities?

We are a truly global business and operate in a number of countries so there may be long term
opportunities to work abroad.

If you are interested in working in the USA, please see the Markel Corporation website.

What if I don't meet the minimum requirements, can I still apply?

If you don’t meet the minimum entry requirements you will not be eligible to apply to Markel University
programmes.

If I am unsuccessful, can I apply again?

If you are unsuccessful at any stage of the application process we will let you know. Unfortunately you will be unable to apply again for our 2019 intake, but you are welcome to apply again in the following year.
