The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOS ICH) has a reciprocal academic exchange arrangement with the University of Toronto whereby PhD students from GOS ICH may spend 6 months of their PhD carrying out research at the University.  This studentship provides funding for a student to undertake the University of Toronto placement, typically during the second year of their PhD.

GOS ICH is a division of the UCL Faculty of Population Health Sciences. Together with its partner, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust, GOS ICH forms the largest concentration of children’s health research in Europe.

The great strength of UCL's research was reaffirmed in REF 2021. ICH was part of a UCL return to the Clinical Medicine sub-panel 1, and Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care. 93% of UCL's research was rated as either world-leading or internationally excellent.  In assessment of research power, UCL’s performance was top in the UK for as top in the UK for research power in the main panels of ‘medicine, health and life sciences’ and ‘social sciences’. Support from the NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), underpins all translational research at GOS ICH and GOSH.

The Institute is committed to high quality postgraduate education and has a strong track record of training and support for its postgraduates. A high level of interaction exists across the Institute between basic scientists, clinicians and population health scientists.
