F2 Abroad

The Wessex Foundation School can only approve F2 equivalent training programmes in New Zealand, Australia or South Africa. The number of trainees is limited to 8 per year.

Trainees who have completed their F1 year in Wessex and wish to undertake their F2 year abroad need to submit an application for "F2 Abroad" and apply for prospective approval of the F2 equivalent posts. Further information about this process can be found in our F2 Abroad Guidance document.

Applications for F2 abroad need to be submitted to the Wessex Foundation School at least six months ahead of the start of the F2 post and by the deadline date in our timeline.

The Wessex Foundation School has imposed a limit of eight on the number of trainees (each year) who can be granted prospective approval of their F2 programme abroad.

Applications will be reviewed by the Head of Wessex Foundation School, along with the Foundation Programme Manger.

The Application Process:

  • F2 Abroad Guidance (pdf)
  • F2 Abroad Application Pack (pdf) - The application pack for F2 abroad consists of two sections for completion: Part A and Part B.
  • Applicants should initially complete and submit the four documents in Part A of the application pack by the deadline listed on our timeline.
  • Applicants who are approved for F2 abroad will then be required to submit further documentation in Part B in order to gain prospective approval of their F2 equivalent posts.
