Scholarships for MSc/MRes Students

The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child (ICH) has a new scholarship fund for postgraduate students on taught programmes. 


Up to five students registered for an MSc or MRes at ICH can receive up to £3,000 towards the fees for a full-time student OR up to £1,500 per year for a student taking an MSc on a flexible/part-time basis, paid over two years. 

The award amount will be deducted from the cost of fees at the start of the programme.


The scholarship is available to students registered any pathway within the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute Child Health MSc/MRes programmes, but students undertaking pathways particularly relevant to paediatrics and child health will have preference.

Selection Criteria

Students will be assessed on the basis of the scholarship application form and in particular on their personal statement, as well as their original application for their degree programme. 

The selected student will:

  • be academically strong 
  • show commitment to paediatrics and child health demonstrated through previous work / qualifications;
  • demonstrate their career plans within paediatrics and child health and how the MSc/MRes will benefit these plans and;
  • have a good academic record.

An applicant’s financial position and need may also be considered where the applicant meets the criteria above.

Where the award is made to an overseas student, the candidate must have already obtained the required level of English Language and the panel must take steps within reason to ensure that the candidate will be able to afford the remaining costs involved with completing the MSc /MRes.
