Personal Fellowship Route

UCL has an excellent track record for assisting aspiring clinicians and scientists to further their career development through the award of personal fellowships. Examples of current and past personal fellowships at the Institute include:

  • Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council: Advanced Training Fellowship
  • European Commission: Marie Curie Individual Fellowships
  • Royal College of Surgeons of England, Faculty of Dental Surgery Fellowship
