EPSRC Our Health


The Our Health team encourages students from any discipline and any programme of study to apply if they are interested in community engaged research and enriched learning experiences.

Who can apply?

You can apply to join any of the Our Health projects if you are a student at the University of Edinburgh (includes all programmes of study).

When do the projects take place?

The projects run across Semester 1 and 2 and also across the Summer (June- August)

There will be a number of mentoring sessions led by Project Mentor, Dr Helen Szoor-McElhinney, throughout the course of the projects that help students reflect upon their work and plan next steps.

Students will be invited to attend the Edinburgh Award reception in November or April.


If you are interested in taking part in any of the Our Health research projects, or would like to find out more about them, please contact Helen at:
