When does it take place?
The next summer school runs from 25 to 29 June 2012.

Where will it be held?
It will take place at the IDM’s training suite in Teddington, SW London. The headquarters have purpose built training suites and facilities, and are situated 5 minutes walk from Teddington station (South West Train service into London Waterloo) and within easy access of motorway links. Please see the map for details of how to get here.

How much does it cost?
There is no fee to attend, and no charge for staying in accommodation at St. Mary's College. You will only be responsible for your travel and miscellaneous expenses.

When will the assessment days take place and where?
Assessment days will be held during April 2012 at the IDM in Teddington.

How many places are there on the programme?
A maximum of 30 places will be offered.

How do I apply?
Applications are invited now. Simply complete the application form. You can download it as a word document so that you have time to consider your answers, and then send the completed form as an email attachment to graduateservices@theidm.com.

Are there any minimum requirements?
No, we do not stipulate minimum grades. The selection process covers a wide range of skills and abilities - we are looking for bright, creative and dynamic people.

I am in my second year, can I apply?
No, you need to be graduating in 2012, so you should apply next year.

I have already graduated, can I still apply?
In addition to students graduating in 2012, we will accept applications from 2011 graduates who are not yet working in marketing or who have taken a gap year.

Do I have to be studying marketing to apply?
Applications from undergraduate and postgraduate students of all degree disciplines are welcome.

When is the closing date?
2 March 2012, so get your application in soon.

Where can I stay during the week?
The summer school takes the form of a residential course with accommodation at nearby St. Mary's College (no charge). Should you prefer to stay elsewhere, you may make your own arrangements but you will be liable for the cost. As the programme includes evening activities, we recommend you stay in the local vicinity.

Where are the locations of the jobs?
Opportunities are UK-wide. See the list of patron companies for details.

Do you accept applications from students who do not hold a valid UK work permit?
Unfortunately not, as the jobs that students are prepared for are all based in the UK and students must therefore be available to start employment that year. Information on obtaining UK work permits can be found here.

Do you offer any financial assistance?
The IDM may be able to help towards costs for students travelling long distance. Applications should be made to janicepickard@theidm.com before 3rd June 2012.

I have a question not answered here, who can I ask?
Email graduateservices@theidm.com and a member of the graduate services team will be pleased to help.
