PhD Programme

OUCRU’s PhD opportunities allow you to work on highly impactful research projects on the computer, in the lab, in the clinic and/or in the community.

Every year, OUCRU offers opportunities for talented local scientists and clinicians to enroll in a 4-year fully funded postgraduate training program.

Postgraduate projects would be based at either OUCRU Ho Chi Minh, OUCRU Ha Noi, or OUCRU Indonesia. Candidates are enrolled with our UK university partners. OUCRU provides a pathway for students to enroll at the Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford and the UK’s Open University via our long standing status as an Affiliated Research Centre.

Our postgraduate projects focus on infectious diseases relevant to the work of OUCRU, our partners and the SEA region.
