The MTI application forms are available to download below in Portable Document Format (.pdf).

For potential Employment Sponsors who wish to apply to the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges for a Tier 5 Certificate of Sponsorship, please fill out the Medical Training Initiative Application Form. We also recommend you look over the MTI Explanatory Notes document to guide you through the application process.

For Trusts who have doctors set to arrive in the UK and take up post shortly, please remember to complete the MTI Starters Report. This is to be filled out and sent to the Academy along with a verified copy of the doctor’s Biometric Residence Permit 5 days of the doctor’s first day of employment. Failure to return this form could result in the Academy withdrawing the Certificate of Sponsorship. It will be assumed that the doctor did not travel to the UK.

It is also the responsibility of the Trust to report any exceptions to the doctor’s employment terms and conditions to the Academy. These are listed on the Exception Reporting Form. This form is to be filled out and sent to the Academy if any exceptions are to occur.

The relevant form together with the required accompanying application documents should be sent to the Academy by email to

 All new applicants should use these forms.

We have revised the combined exception /end of placement report and created two separate forms for very specific situations:

The Exception Report is to be completed if you have information that an MTI doctor is either:

  • Breaching the terms or conditions of his or her leave, or
  • May be engaging in criminal activity or other activities in contravention of their visa conditions.

The End of Placement Report must be submitted when the MTI participant is in one of the following circumstances:

  • Has reached the end of their placement
  • Has resigned
  • Has been absent from work or study for more than 10 working days without permission
  • Has been dismissed.
