- Full tuition fee and funding
- 29 July 2019
A number of online learning Masters scholarships are available in the field of Ophthalmology for students from Africa, South Asia, Caribbean Islands, Pacific Islands, Central and Latin America who have been accepted for admission to the two-year, part-time online ChM (Master of Surgery) in Clinical Ophthalmology in academic session 2019-2020.
The scholarships will be awarded to students who are accepted for admission on to the online learning Master of Surgery (ChM) in Clinical Ophthalmology at the University of Edinburgh, one of the Edinburgh Surgery Online suite of Masters programmes. Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. Applicants should be advanced trainee ophthalmologists. Applications from ophthalmologists in independent practice may also be considered.
Applicants must be both nationals of and resident of one of the stated countries on the website. These include most countries in Africa, South Asia, Caribbean Islands, Pacific Islands, Central and Latin America.
Each scholarship will cover the tuition fee for the entire programme of study and funding towards a laptop and internet service. The award is tenable for two academic years, subject to academic progress.
The scholarship is funded by the generous support of The David and Molly Pyott Foundation.
Selection is based on academic merit and the personal statement in which you describe your current contribution to your country's local and national ophthalmology development plans and how you will use the scholarship to further contribute to the development of ophthalmology services in your country.
Successful applicants will be committed to working in their country's ophthalmology service on completion of their studies; to using their new found skills to further enhance and develop the service; and to fostering clinical and academic links between their country's medical universities, ophthalmology teaching hospitals and research institutes and The University of Edinburgh.
