The Nuffield Department of Medicine offers opportunities for summer internships to undergraduate and Masters students from some of our key collaborating countries. We currently offer several fully-funded awards to students from Mexico. You will get the opportunity to work in a laboratory environment with an Oxford University Principal Investigator (PI) and their team in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine for a period of approximately eight weeks. You will also get the opportunity to live in Oxford - one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the UK.
This year the department has several country-specific awards for internships. The awards will cover the travel and living costs for a two-month internship in a departmental research laboratory. The scholarship awarded is to the value of £3,000. Accommodation will be arranged at an Oxford college for students funded through these awards and costs will be deducted from the award and paid to the college on your behalf. The award payments will be made in regular instalments after your arrival in the UK.
Funding For students from Mexico
fully-funded internships are available for up to three students from Mexico. Students from our partner institutions are encouraged to apply and should discuss with their home institutions alternative funding options.
Please note that the number of awards available is restricted and that this is therefore a competitive application process. Fulfilling the criteria listed does not guarantee you an award.
