NIHR MSc Studentships in Medical Statistics

Academic year 2019
Amount £16,777


Four studentships are available for the 2019-20 academic year. These studentships are funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), and have been made available with the aim of building research capacity in medical statistics; they will be targeted towards students who are planning to go on to work in areas of benefit to the National Health Service.

There will be two deadlines for applications - two studentships will be awarded in April, and two in June. Early application is recommended. Unsuccessful applicants for the April award will automatically be reconsidered for the June award.

The competition for these studentships is high, and applicants are strongly encouraged to seek alternative funding should their application be unsuccessful.

Award & Eligibility for Funding

The studentships are open to UK and EU applicants only.

Each studentship provides tuition fees at the Home/EU fee rate and a stipend (a tax free living allowance). The 2019-20 stipend rate is still to be confirmed. The 2018-19 annual stipend rate is GBP 16,777.00.

How to Apply

To be considered for this funding, you must submit an MSc online application for MSc in Medical Statistics, along with all necessary supporting documentation, by the funding application deadline. There is no separate scholarship application process - all eligible candidates will be considered for this funding.

For scholarship purposes, applications submitted without all the necessary supporting documents are considered incomplete.

What our students have to say about SI-UK

I utilized the services of SI-UK in Chennai which proved invaluable for me. They provided great assistance throughout my application process, guiding me from evaluating my choices to selecting the university that best matched my profile.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
