We have been hosting students from Mahidol University, Oxford Univeristy and Open University for over 20 years. Review our student pages to find out more information on how to apply, courses and funding available. Plus we have updated information for all current students and supervisors.

Attention students: Consider MORU for your studies!

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.

MORU currently hosts DPhil PhD and MSc students from Mahidol’s Faculty of Tropical Medicine, the Nuffield Dept of Medicine at Oxford and the UK’s Open University. We welcome inquiries and applications from students around the world.

We offer students opportunities in multi-disciplinary research areas such as malariamicrobiologypharmacologymathematical & economic modellingepidemiologybioethics and community engagement.

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.

Interested? Have a look at our list of researchers for a potential supervisor and contact them directly. Or contact Professor Stuart Blacksell, Post-Graduate Student Coordinator.

How to apply

Three Minute Thesis competition

The Three Minute Thesis competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
