Inter Foundation School Transfers

The IFST process has been designed to support transfers across the programme in cases where individual circumstances have changed since the point of initial allocation.

A central application process has been introduced for F1 trainees working as part of a two-year programme to apply for a transfer to take effect from the start of their F2 year. It is recognised that situations will arise outside of this process, therefore the option to apply for a transfer outside of the central process throughout the course of the programme will continue to be available for in the event of exceptional circumstances.

The IFST process for 2020-21 is closed. The IFST process for the training year August 2021-August 2022 will open on Monday 15 March 2021.  Applicants will be notified of the outcomes on Monday 26th April 2021.


Full guidance and application forms can be found on the UKFPO Website
