The CREATE PhD Programme will provide 25 doctoral fellowships to UK professional body registered health professionals who will register for their PhD at one of the five UK Partner Institutions and conduct their research at one of six African Partner Institutions.
In addition, the CREATE PhD Programme will also recruit and support an equal number of fellows based in African partner countries (Uganda, The Gambia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia) to undertake a PhD. The fellows from the African countries will have the choice to register their PhD in their home country or at one of the UK partner institutions. It is generally expected that all fellows will spend approximately 2 years in the African partner country undertaking their research.
UK recruited fellows will be paired with the African PhD fellow in the same country where they will be based, to create a blended south-north cohort of fellows. All CREATE PhD Programme fellows, regardless of their source of recruitment, will be able to access a large supervisory pool, training and mentorship offered by the Programme.Table of Content

The CREATE PhD Programme is a three-year (full-time or equivalent) PhD programme, which will train future global health research leaders who are not only technically excellent, but are equipped to work effectively across scientific and clinical disciplines in equitable partnerships with their peers in low-income countries.
The PhD programme is open to all candidates who want to undertake research focused on the major global health challenges in Africa. This fellowship programme will provide a 3-year research PhD training fellowship. Candidates apply through a localised admissions process at one of the African Partner Institutions (API), but if awarded a fellowship can be registered at either the API or another institution (e.g. a UK institution) dependent on the individual circumstances of the award.
PhD fellowships are intended to commence on 1st January/April 2024 (unless otherwise indicated) and will have a duration of up to 36 months. The funding will cover tuition fees, stipend, and project related costs such as travel and training. A full list of the PhD fellowship projects is shown in Table 1. The funding available for specific research projects will be determined by the individual APIs.
Candidates submit an application to their API of choice, for a particular pre-identified project, along with any other required documentation (please consult the local recruitment contact point and/or website for further information).
