The AHRI MSc Scholarship, sponsored by University College London (UCL), is a singular award for the UK academic year September 2019 to September 2020. The scholarship is administered via AHRI and is for applicants whose academic background and interests are aligned with the programmes of research at AHRI.

Applicants are invited to apply for a taught master’s degree at UCL’s Faculty of Medicine or Faculty of Population Health Sciences. Applicants must have a high-quality academic record.
