Watch our videos with Sarah Rowland-Jones and Proochista Ariana about the MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine; DPhil Students from Thailand encouraging fellow students to consider MORU for their studies; students in Kenya telling us about the School Leavers Attachment Scheme in Kilifi Kenya; Jacob Kazungu and his experience as School Leavers Attachment Scheme student; Kenyan student sharing their experience with the KWTRP School Engagement programme.
This course is a full-time, one-year multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary programme that examines major challenges to the health of populations in resource-limited contexts. Embedded within the Oxford Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, the course benefits from the Centre's reputation and expertise in Global Health research and practice.
A key focus of MORU is building scientific research capacity in Thailand and SE and South Asia. One way we do this is by hosting students in a world-class research environment. In this video, you’ll hear from some of our current students about why living and studying in SE Asia and at MORU is such a great experience.
The School Leavers Attachment Scheme (SLAS) selects talented students from Kilifi, Kenya, who have just completed high school with excellent grades to go on a three-month attachment. Students gain valuable work experience in laboratories, hospital wards, computer departments and community interaction. This experience gives students an advantage over most other university first-years.
This video tells the story of Jacob Kazungu, one of our School Leavers’ Attachment Scheme Students. Following the attachment, Jacob pursued a career in science and has now published several 1st author articles, and has been awarded with a Wellcome Master's Fellowship.
The School Engagement Programme was established by KEMRI with the support of the Kilifi County Education Office. It aims at promoting an interest in science and science related careers among students and to promote mutual understanding between members of the community and researchers.
