The Centre has an active group of research students from all over the
world, who are enrolled in our MPhil/PhD programme in the History of
Medicine. Some of them are funded by our scholarships, some by external
bodies, some pursue their PhD as part-time or self-funded students.
The topics of their research cover all fields in the history of medicine
and related fields, which are represented by members of the academic
Applicants are requested to submit a completed application form, including a CV, two letters of reference, one A4 page describing their research proposal, and a further page elaborating on the sources they plan to use, how they situate their PhD project within the history of medicine, and the secondary literature on which they base their approach.
The Centre supports PhD students applying to funding bodies
such as the AHRC, Wellcome Trust and UCL. AHRC and Wellcome Trust
studentships are highly competitive. They require considerable paperwork
and must be sent to the funding agency by the Centre, not by
prospective students. Deadlines are strict.
For further information, please look at the following sites:
The Arts and Humanities Research Council
The Wellcome Trust, History of Medicine Awards
We recommend that prospective students contact the PhD administrator at the earliest opportunity, Professor Roger Cooter, at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
All fees quoted are for the session 2011-12 and relate to
the whole session. Fees for subsequent years are subject to increase and this
is implicit in accepting the offer of a place at UCL.
