The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) is the lead agency for fostering world-class scientific research and talent in Singapore.

A*STAR oversees 18 biomedical sciences and physical sciences and engineering research entities, located in Biopolis and Fusionopolis as well as their immediate vicinity. 

A*STAR is highly selective of the students it supports and therefore A*STAR students are characteristically highly motivated and achieve excellent results. Most A*STAR programmes carry a service requirement for the student, which is usually spent in an A*STAR research institution either before or after the DPhil programme.

The A*STAR 2+2 AOP programme is a fully funded programme comprising two years at a Singapore A* institution and two years at Oxford working on the same project.

The student is mentored by a supervisor from each institution and ultimately gains their degree from Oxford.
