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.
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.

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.
