Please note that applications close on Friday May 8 and due to the volume of applications expected late applicants cannot be guaranteed accreditation. As a result, those wishing to obtain accreditation should register and apply as soon as possible.
Please note, all successful applicants for accreditation must either hold a UK or EU passport or have obtained a valid UK visa. Applicants who fail to obtain a necessary UK visa will not be able to travel to the UK and therefore their accreditation will be invalid.
