The Graduate School for Interdisciplinary Studies is pleased to offer up to four full-fee scholarships for UK entrants to the MSc in Digital Health.

The scholarships are part-funded by The Data Lab, Scotland’s innovation centre for data and artificial intelligence. The Data Lab is supported by the Scottish Funding Council and the European Social Fund/DWS.

The scholarships are open to students who (i) have right to live and work in the UK and (ii) whose ordinary place of residence has been in Scotland for at least three years (not in full-time education). EU citizens who have not received pre-settlement status are not eligible - for more advice see the eligibility guidance.

MSc Digital Health

On the MSc in Digital Health you will learn about the theoretical underpinnings of digital health. You will look at different forms of health data, the technology that generate them, methods used for processing and analysis, and how digital data is integrated in clinical decision making.

Theoretical learning is applied to real-world case studies, and you will develop an understanding of practitioner and industry perspectives and the work that is needed across academia and other sectors to advance digital health. The MSc in Digital Health has close links with the Sir James Mackenzie Institute for Early Diagnosis.

Please see the digital prospectus for more information about the MSc in Digital Health and advice on how to apply for admission.

The scholarships cover the full tuition fees.


Eligible students will automatically be considered for these scholarships provided that they hold an offer of admission to the MSc in Digital Health by 30 April 2021.

There is no need to submit a separate scholarship application.

We particularly welcome applications from groups who are traditionally under-represented in science and technology.
