Past winners from academic and non-academic applications include Noemie Goudal; Indre Serpytyte; Andrew Lacon; Tom Hatton; Felicity Hammond; Theodore Plytas and Silje Lovise Gjertsen.

The twelve-month programme is designed around the needs of the individual and includes creative and conceptual advice; professional and business development; marketing identity and PR; technical experience and networking introductions and opportunities.
