Eligibility Criteria

You can apply for an International Training Fellowship if:

You must want to undertake a guided period of research so that you can consolidate your existing experience and explore new areas of research.

You must:

  • have a PhD and be an early-career researcher; or
  • have a degree in a relevant subject and some initial research experience; or
  • be a clinically qualified doctor (and be qualified to enter higher specialist training), vet, dentist or clinical psychologist, and have some initial research experience.
