We offer two University College London IMPACT Scholarships per year, which will support applicants who have demonstrated financial need, experienced disequilibrium and promise a major impact on resident health.
Controlling and redressing the impact of inequalities is a core philosophy of the UCL Master of Public Health (MPH). To reflect this, the University College London IMPACT Scholarships will cover successful recipients’ full fees (£16,500) to study on the MPH programme.
People who want to study full-time, part-time or flexible are welcome to apply and the scholarship will be applied pro rata to their fees.
