You must be a team of students (postgraduate and / or undergraduate) at a Higher Education Institute (University or Art College).  

You can still apply if your whole team is currently in their fourth year and will graduate in summer 2014. Your team can have a maximum of 2 people in it who are studying at a Further Education college or who have graduated in the last 2 years but the remaining 3 team members must fit the normal criteria, i.e. are undergraduate or postgraduate students at a University or College of Art.
