This page gives guidance on the next steps after submission of your ST3 application form.
Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an automatic email confirming submission.
Check junk/spam folders
If you do not, firstly please check the 'spam' or 'junk' folders of your email account, and ensure that you are checking the account which corresponds to the email address you used to log in.
If the email is found in spam/junk, please mark it as 'not spam/junk' so that future email is delivered to your inbox.
Please note that the email may not arrive immediately upon submission of your application.
All emails visible in application account
Any emails sent to you via the application system will be stored in your candidate portal - ie your 'account', visible when you log in - in the 'My Messages' section, so you will be able to view these upon logging in.
If you have still not received an email over an hour after submitting your application, please contact our helpdesk at email@example.com.
Certain parts of the application can be changed after submission.
Personal & referees' details can be edited
If you need to amend any of your personal details (eg address, telephone number, etc.), you will still be able to do this via the application system after you have submitted.
Updating clinical referees' details, up until the date of your interview, is also possible after submission, if necessary.
No other details can be edited
However, it is not usually possible to alter any other details.
Answers to questions cannot be altered under any circumstances - even typing errors cannot be corrected – as it is your responsibility to ensure that your application is suitable for submission before you submit it.
Should you wish to information recorded in the equality & diversity section, you should email either the deanery/UoA handling your application at that point, or the RCP-SRO helpdesk: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Viewing your application
When you view your application post-submission, you will be able to view a copy of your application via the 'View submitted application' option in your candidate portal.
Save a copy of your application
We advise all candidates to save a copy of their application form - possibly as a webpage (Save As under your internet browser), or as a hard copy of a document, eg via MS Word.
This would be for your own records mainly, and for future reference; but also it may be useful to read through it prior to any interview you are scheduled into, and also you may wish to refer to the form at interview.
Printing your application
When viewing the application, you will see an option to 'Print Application'. Using this otpion will ensure that the form is formatted appropriately to be printed.
