The recipient’s full-time tuition for the MPH program will be covered by the IMPACT Scholarship, up to a value of £18,000. The UCL Master of Public Health (MPH) program’s main idea is the prevention and repair of the effects of inequality. To reflect this, we are providing two scholarships each year to candidates who have shown financial need, have seen inequity firsthand, and have the potential to have a significant effect on population health. The scholarship, up to a maximum of £18,000, will be allocated pro rata toward the recipient’s tuition costs for those who choose to enroll in part-time or modular flexible courses.
About University College London
A public research university in London, England is known as UCL or University College London. It belongs to the Federal University of London and ranks as the second-largest university in the UK in terms of total enrollment as well as postgraduate enrollment.
UCL was the first university founded in London, the first in England to be completely secular, and the first to admit students of any religion. It was founded in 1826 as London University (though without the authority to grant university degrees) by founders who were inspired by the radical ideas of Jeremy Bentham. Two years after University College, Bristol, it was one of the first universities to accept both men and women in 1878.
Politics prompted it to adopt the status of a college in 1836 when it got a royal charter and became one of the two founding colleges of the University of London, although its founders had intended it to be England’s third university. It only received de facto recognition as a university in the 1990s. It has expanded through mergers, such as those with the Institute of Ophthalmology in 1995, the Institute of Neurology in 1997, the Royal Free Hospital Medical School in 1998, the Eastman Dental Institute in 1999, the School of Slavonic and East European Studies in 1999, the School of Pharmacy in 2012, and the Institute of Education in 2014, among others.

Interview date, Process, and Venue for The IMPACT Scholarship
The IMPACT Scholarship is given based on a thorough set of criteria to evaluate applicants’ descriptions of:
- How their experience of inequality (due to income, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, caregiving responsibilities, adverse childhood experience, social exclusion, or disability) has shaped them and their desire to study public health?
- Why they should be awarded a scholarship to study for a Master of Public Health degree and how it would help them individually

Each submission will be examined and scored independently by a group of two assessors. Assessors’ collective/average scores will be graded. The two candidates with the best scores will be suggested for scholarships.
