Job Description

The Health Data Research UK Biomedical Vacation Scholarships provide undergraduates with hands-on experience of health data science-based research during the summer vacation period, with the aim of encouraging them to consider a career in research.

What’s a Vacation Scholarship?

  • It enables students to gain research experience and skills while undertaking a health data science project.

  • It aims to encourage students to consider postgraduate studies.

  • It enables you to work under the supervision of an academic/clinician/data scientist during the project.

Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Students must be registered on a relevant undergraduate course in the UK or Republic of Ireland that involves some study of mathematics and/or computing. Examples of relevant subjects include computer science, mathematics, engineering or physics.

  • Students are eligible in the middle year(s) of the degree when they have not yet undertaken a substantial period of research.

Students are not eligible:

  • If they are in their first or last year of study.

  • If they have previously undertaken a vacation scholarship from Wellcome or another funding body or have had significant research experience.

  • If they have completed or are currently undertaking an intercalated year.

  • If they have completed or are currently undertaking a one-year placement in research as part of their degree (e.g. a sandwich year).

  • As a graduate-entry medical student who has completed a previous undergraduate degree in a science-related subject.

  • As a student enrolled in a course outside the UK or Republic of Ireland.
