We are offering two University College London IMPACT Scholarships annually which will support candidates who have displayed financial need, who have lived experience of imbalance, and who show great promise for resident’s health impact.
Controlling and redressing the impact of inequalities is a root philosophy of the UCL Master of Public Health (MPH). To reflect this, the University College London IMPACT Scholarships will cover the successful recipients’ full fees (£16,500) to study in the MPH program.
People who want to study full-time, part-time or modular flexible are welcome to apply and the scholarship will be applied to their fees pro rata.
University College London, which operates as UCL is a general research university in London, United Kingdom. It is a member institution of the federal University of London and is the second-largest university in the United Kingdom by total enrolment and the largest by postgraduate enrolment.
Founded in 1826, as London University, by founders encouraged by the radical ideas of Jeremy Bentham, University College London was the first university institution to be founded in London, and the first in England to be completely secular and to admit students still of their religion.
University College London also makes challenged claims to be the third-oldest university in England and the first to admit women. In 1836, the university became one of the two founding colleges of the University of London, which was given a royal charter in the same year.
However, the university has grown through mergers, including 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).
University College London has its main campus in the Bloomsbury area of central London, with several institutes and teaching hospitals elsewhere in central London and satellite campuses at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, and in Doha, Qatar.
In addition, the university is organized into 11 constituent faculties, within which there are over 100 departments, institutes, and research centers. University College London operates several museums and collections in a wide range of fields, including the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and the Grant Museum of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy, and administers the annual Orwell Prize in political writing.
In 2019/20, the university had about 43,840 students and 16,400 staff (including around 7,100 academic staff and 840 professors) and had a total income of £1.54 billion, of which £468 million was from research grants and contracts.
University College London is a member of multiple academic organizations, including the Russell Group and the League of European Research Universities, and is part of UCL Partners, the world’s largest academic health science center.
Furthermore, the university is considered part of the “golden triangle” of research-intensive universities in southeast England. University College London has publishing and commercial activities including UCL Press, UCL Business, and UCL Consultants.
Also, the university has many notable alumni, including the respective “Fathers of the Nation” of India, Kenya, and Mauritius, the founders of Ghana, modern Japan, and Nigeria, the creator of the telephone, and one of the co-discoverers of the structure of DNA.
