Specialisms FAQs

Which specialism should I apply for?

When you start your application, you’ll be asked which specialism you want to apply for. As you won’t be able to change this specialism once you’ve applied, it’s important that you think carefully about your choice.

Your chosen specialism will lead to the professional qualification you take with us and the type of placement you have with us on the scheme. However, we expect you to be a leader first, and a specialist in your particular field second – our graduates do work across silos and professional fields.

At the end of the scheme, many GMTS trainees decide to branch out into different specialisms from the ones they studied.
