We now wish to support the development and growth of new master’s-level degree programmes in health data science that meet all of the following criteria:

  • Build on scientific excellence and postgraduate training track-record in the bidding institution
  • Show innovative approaches to training either health/life sciences graduates or quantitative sciences graduates as members of multidisciplinary health data science teams
  • Include non-academic public and/or private sector partners in the planning and/or delivery of the degree scheme
  • Show substantial institutional commitment in the form of contributions in cash and/or in kind.

Application procedure

The application should be led by a single UK degree-awarding institution, to whom the award will be made on behalf of all partner institutions if the application is successful. A panel including independent international experts will meet in April 2019 to assess the applications and advise Health Data Research UK on which should be funded.

Applications must be made by email to enquiries@hdruk.ac.uk, by 4pm on Friday 22 March 2019.
