2-2.12 Considerations before applying


2.6 Overseas applicants

Overseas applicants may apply to MRC fellowship schemes. All candidates are expected to demonstrate a long-term aspiration to strengthen the UK research base. All fellowship applicants must comply with Home Office requirements and, where appropriate, hold a valid work visa or work permit to cover the period of the fellowship. Visa guidance for non-European Economic Area applicants and for EU/EEA applicants entering the UK from January 2021 can be found in section 2.7. Any queries regarding residence eligibility or visa requirements should be addressed to the research organisation concerned.
