GLI Application Process
The GLOSS team are committed to supporting our students at all stages of the application process. This web page outlines the different stages of application, and provides some helpful advice of things to consider when submitting an application to the GLI.
Students are eligible to apply to as many GLI opportunities as they wish. However if selected, you will be unable to apply to attend another summit as we wish to offer the GLI opportunities to as many students as possible.
If you have any questions about the application process, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
|How do I apply?||
For each GLI opportunity you will normally be required to submit the following:
• A 500 word essay in response to a question related to the summit
This may vary slightly depending on the summit.
Previous examples of essay questions:
“How is entrepreneurship important for global growth and sustainability?” – Global Entrepreneurship Congress, 2016
“Discuss the importance of a potential agenda item at the upcoming summit.” – G7, 2016
If your application impresses the academic staff, you may be shortlisted for interview. Generally each GLI opportunity has around 8 places for students, so we interview around 10-12 applicants. The academic staff who interview applicants will be assessing how applicants can make connections between their course and the issues and debates that will be key themes for discussion at the summit/conference.
At interview, you may be expected to answer questions on the following things:
If you have not been selected after your interview, GLOSS will provide you with constructive feedback on your interview performance, which will prove useful for future GLI applications, and also for job applications or internships in the future.
For those students who are selected to attend a GLI Summit, the GLOSS team provides a compulsory pre-summit briefing and training to ensure that you are well equipped and prepared for the opportunity. This usually comprises 2 sessions before your departure. Sessions will vary depending on the nature of the summit/conference.
All the trainings are compulsory for successful GLOSS applicants. Please note since GLI is a HEAR-able activity, you must attend these sessions as part of meeting the HEAR criteria.
|Equality & Diversity||
The GLI is committed to promoting the University’s stance on Equality and Diversity. We hope to attract applicants from all backgrounds and sectors of society. The GLI has an excellent track record of equality action and pro-actively supporting students from all backgrounds to apply for places with the GLI.
