The MSc Dental Public Health Aubrey Sheiham Scholarship

Academic year 2024
Amount £5,000


The UCL Research Department of Epidemiology and Public Health is pleased to offer two one-year Scholarships for full-time students undertaking the MSc in Dental Public Health. The awards will commence in September 2024 and the Scholarships will consist of £2,500 towards tuition fees for home students and £5,000 for overseas students. The recipients will be expected to secure the remaining part of their tuition fees and to cover their living costs.

The overseas Scholarship is funded through very generous personal donations from Dr Garry Rayant and Dr Kathy Fields, and Dr Helena Cronin in honour of the late Professor Aubrey Sheiham, an inspirational dental public health scholar who originally established the UCL MSc course and who taught and enthused many students across his distinguished academic career.

Eligibility requirements

Candidates must commit to pursue the full-time UCL MSc in Dental Public Health and must have received an unconditional offer of admission. Applicants with a conditional offer can apply for the Scholarship but must receive an unconditional offer before 16th August 2024 to be eligible for the Scholarship.

Selection criteria

Awards will be made on the basis of experience, qualifications and future academic potential assessed by curriculum vitae and depending on the number of applications received, through online interviews. Short-listed candidates will be also asked to write a 1000-word essay on a pre-defined public health topic. The Scholarships will be awarded upon the recommendation of an academic selection panel chaired by the Head of the Dental Public Health research group, Professor Richard Watt.

Value and duration

The value of each award is £2,500 (home students) and £5,000 (overseas students). Awards are tenable for one year of full-time study only for the session 2024-2025. Terms and conditions of the award:

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."

"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!
