This award will fund tuition fees to the value of home fees; students with overseas status are welcome to apply but will need to fund the remainder of their fees from alternative sources.

The awards offer traditional project-specific training in areas of particular importance to primary care and awarded to applicants from diverse backgrounds including e.g., medical statistics, social sciences, health economics, health psychology).

Studentship awards include fees and an annual tax-free stipend of £16,000 (plus a London weighting for QMUL and UCL and college fees for University of Oxford).
