Pfizer Bursaries

Imperial College London, with financial support from Pfizer Limited, is proud to offer 5 fully-funded studentships for Home/EU students on Imperial’s MSc Patient Safety programme. The bursaries apply to the 2017 intake only and are awarded based on merit.

Applications for the bursaries will be judged by a panel, including the Course Director and another academic faculty (i.e. Module Lead). Considerations include:

  • Academic preparedness, including past academic performance (as demonstrated via formal degrees and past transcripts) and research involvement (including participation in research projects, local audits and improvement projects);
  • Professional background and experience; 
  • Ability to contribute to the learning experience of the cohort; and
  • Other sources of funding, if available. Students without other sources of support (i.e. other bursaries (AHSN)) will be prioritised, as we want to make the MSc programme accessible to a wider and more diverse population.

To be considered, students should clearly stipulate their intention to be considered in their personal statements. In addition, students should indicate, in their personal statements, whether they wish to proceed with the programme application in the case that they are unsuccessful in applying for bursaries. Applications, where the intention to be considered for bursaries is not clearly outlined, will be assumed to be forgoing bursaries. Due to the overwhelming number of applications we receive, we regret that we are unable to inform students why they have not been successful in their bursary applications. Deadline for applications is 31st September 2017. 

As a condition of receiving the Pfizer bursary, students must attend a separate 1-day seminar on safer prescribing, also sponsored by Pfizer Limited as a Medical and Educational Goods and Service. This 1-day seminar will take place on 29th November and will be from 9:30 – 4:30. The day involved speakers from a range of academic, clinical and industry backgrounds.
