Our Fellowships

International Course in Nutritional Epidemiology

World Cancer Research Fund International is committed to developing future leaders in Nutritional Epidemiology through Fellowships. Our Fellowships – which we have been offering for the last five years – are awarded to outstanding applicants for the International Course in Nutritional Epidemiology organised by the School of Public Health, Imperial College London.

Course objectives

This advanced and interactive course gives participants a solid grounding in the knowledge and skills required to work as a nutritional epidemiologist. By the end of the course participants will be able to critically evaluate results from nutritional epidemiological studies, be able to evaluate a diet-disease association, and be aware of current developments in the field.

Course date

The next course will be held in autumn 2018. Applications will open in spring 2018.

Fellowship application process

The Fellowship comprises funding for the course fees. Interested applicants should apply directly to Imperial College London. Those who wish to be considered for the Fellowship can choose this option within the application and will be jointly considered by Imperial College London and World Cancer Research Fund International for the award.

You can find further information about the course, application process and eligibility criteria on the Imperial College London website. Visit the Academy Fellows page to find out more about previous Fellows.
