University College London/AHRI 2023-2024 Masters Scholarship for African Students

The AHRI/UCL PhD Studentship is funded by UCL Division of Infection and Immunity. This opportunity will provide potential students with funding to register for a PhD at UCL and open to applicants who permanently reside in South Africa.

The PhD research must be in the field of Medical Sciences and/or Population Health. This covers everything from single molecules through to cells and tissues to whole organisms and animal and human populations for improved human health and wellbeing worldwide.

Students would be expected to spend most of their time in South Africa, conducting their research at AHRI. While in London, students will be expected to attend seminars, postgraduate club meetings and other UCL doctoral students’ events.  

This opportunity is open to applicants who permanently reside in South Africa. Applicants must have a high-quality academic record to be considered for this opportunity.

Candidates will go through a competitive round of selection at AHRI and the successful candidate will be nominated to go through to the UCL selection. Application for acceptance onto a MSc taught course is separate, and the AHRI nominee will be guided through this process.

 The successful candidate’s research project for the MSc is expected to be aligned with the programmes of research at AHRI.
