Do you wish to study in the UK? Good news! We are here to inform you that Kennedy Trust MB-PhD Program application is currently ongoing at the University of Birmingham. In this article, we will be discussing about the scholarship, its worth, its eligibility and application process.

The University of Birmingham (informally Birmingham University) is a public research university situated in Edgbaston, Birmingham, United Kingdom. It established its royal charter in 1900 as a heir to Queen’s College, Birmingham  and Mason Science College (reputable in 1875 by Sir Josiah Mason), making it the first English civic or ‘red brick’ university to obtain its own royal charter. It is a founding member of both the Russell Group of British research universities and the international network of research universities, Universitas 21.

The student population includes 23,155 undergraduate and 12,605 postgraduate students, which is the 7th largest in the UK (out of 169). The annual income of the university for 2019–20 was £737.3 million of which £140.4 million was from research gifts and agreements, with an outflow of £667.4 million. The main campus of the university inhabits a site some 3 miles (4.8 km) south-west of Birmingham city centre, in Edgbaston.

It is settled around Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower (affectionately known as ‘Old Joe’ or ‘Big Joe’), a grand campanile which honors the university’s first chancellor, Joseph Chamberlain. Chamberlain may be measured the founder of Birmingham University, and was largely responsible for the university gaining its Royal Charter in 1900 and for the expansion of the Edgbaston campus. The university’s Great Hall is situated in the domed Aston Webb Building, which is called after one of the architects – the other was Ingress Bell.


The initial 25-acre (100,000 m2) site was given to the university in 1900 by Lord Calthorpe. The impressive buildings were an outcome of the £50,000 given by steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie to establish a “first class modern scientific college” on the model of Cornell University in the United States. Funding was also donated by Sir Charles Holcroft.

The Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLSIS) rated 4th in the UK and 22nd in the world in the Hix rankings of political science departments. The sociology department also rated 4th by The Guardian University guide. The Research Fortnight’s University Power Rank, based on quality and quantity of research activity, put the University of Birmingham 12th in the UK, leading the way across a broad variety of disciplines including Primary Care, Cancer Studies, Psychology and Sport and Exercise Sciences.

The School of Physics and Astronomy also performed well in the rankings, being ranked 3rd in the 2012 Guardian University Guide and 7th in The Complete University Guide 2012. The School of Chemical Engineering is ranked second in the UK by the 2014 Guardian University Guide.
