Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK's leading research-focused higher education institutions. Split across five campuses in central and east London, it has a long heritage dating back to 1785 when the first medical school in the UK was formed at the Royal London Hospital.
Students are able to select from an exceptionally broad range of subjects across three main faculties, including the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Science and Engineering and Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. The university places 19th in the UK and 117th in the world (QS Subject rankings 2022) and is renowned for its truly world-leading research. We are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, excellent graduate employability and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
Queen Mary boasts a hugely diverse student population, with over 28,000 students from more than 160 different countries, and 50 per cent of the university’s student community is made up of international students. Studying at Queen Mary, students of all backgrounds can enjoy an exceptional education, and all the culture that London has to offer.

The following applicants are ineligible for consideration: applicants who have extensive previous experience in the UK, applicants whose proposals are to complete any part of a medical degree, including internships or residencies, or applicants who hold a Ph.D. at the time the grant is to begin.
Applicants who have previously spent time at their selected university will be at a competitive disadvantage.
