We are currently experiencing extremely high volumes of applications and queries, which is extending our processing and response times by several working days. Thank you for your patience.
We accept international applications via post to the Registration Department. Please read the guidance included in the application pack very carefully before sending us your application. When we receive your application via post, we may require further information over email for verification but we will advise each applicant accordingly.
This section is for applicants who have completed professional training outside the UK and whose names have not been on the Register before.
