Oriel application system

Oriel is the UK wide portal for recruitment to postgraduate medical, dental, pharmacy, public health and healthcare science training programmes. Oriel enables applicants to register for training, view vacancies, apply, book interviews and assessment centres and manage offers - all within a single central location.

Oriel has recently been updated and, beginning with 2021 recruitment, IMY3 recruitment will be through this new platform. It is accessible through the same web-address, however, as it is a new system, previous applicants’ information cannot be transferred across. This means that for IMY3 recruitment applicants will need to complete the full application form with no fields being pre-populated.


Account registration

If accessing the updated Oriel system for the first time, you will need to create and set up a new account. This should not take more than five minutes or so. From the main screen first select your staff group (medical and dental specialties) and then 'Account Registration'.

It is crucially important to make sure you receive a confirmation email after registering as email will be the main method by which you are contacted through the recruitment round; emails are normally received within 15 minutes, typically much quicker, and should not be more than an hour.

If you register your account, but have not received an email to either your inbox or spam/junk mail folders within 60 minutes of registering, please get in touch via email: [email protected]


Applicant registration is optional - but highly recommended

After creating an account, you can go straight to an application form and begin completing it. However, we would strongly advise you to complete the applicant registration stage first.

Each time you begin a new application the data you have entered during registration will be transferred automatically into the relevant sections of the application.

Therefore, if you are intending to complete multiple applications or another application in the future, this will save a significant amount of time.

Data is only transferred when application opens

One crucial point to note is that this transfer of your registered information only takes place at the time you open a new application.

If you open an application form without having completed applicant registration, no information will be transferred in automatically. If you then add to or amend your registered information after this point, your open application form will be unaffected.
