The decision is in line with national priorities for NHS/HSC to support COVID-19 studies and the restart of clinical trials, and recognises the continuing pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision has been taken in collaboration with partners in the devolved administrations.

We are not reviewing applications for individual undergraduate and master’s student research projects until September 2021.
