The list of available programmes are available to download now. Many students find it easier to review the programmes in this format, rather than via the Oriel website. 

Please note that if a placement does not have details of the exact location (e.g. hospital name) this is because we have not been informed yet.

Psychiatry Foundation Fellowship recruitment will be managed separately by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, expected to begin in December. Please check the UKFPO website for further details.

Please be advised all 2022 programmes are subject to change in relation to placement order, specialty, length, banding, site, and Trust due to the changing needs of the hospitals.

At the group/Trust ranking stage, the options link only to the F1 Trust, the majority of programmes within the Oxford Foundation School involve trainees rotating to a different Trust for F2.

Linking Applications

It is possible to link your application to that of another person in order to be allocated to the same Foundation School. The link is honoured only as far as the Foundation School and does not include a link to the same Trust or programme. This needs to be specified on the UKFPO application.
