These studentships provide funding for fees and stipend at the rate set by the UK Research Councils, as well as other research training and support costs, and are available to UK, EU and International students.
The partnership brings together the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff (lead) and Exeter to develop the next generation of biomedical researchers. Students will have access to the combined research strengths, training expertise and resources of the four research-intensive universities, with opportunities to participate in interdisciplinary and 'team science'. The DTP already has 84 studentships over 5 cohorts.
The 68 projects available for application, are aligned to the following themes;
Applications open on 21st September 2020 and close at 5.00pm on 23rd November 2020.
Studentships will be 3.5 years full time or up to 7 years part-time.
Residency: The GW4 BioMed MRC DTP studentships are available to UK, EU and International applicants. International students (including EU applicants) are now eligible to apply for these studentships but should note that they may have to pay the difference between the home UKRI fee and the Institutional International student fees at their chosen Institution. Information on International fee rates are available on each Institution's website for comparison, and we will update applicants when further information becomes available.
Academic criteria: Applicants for a studentship must have obtained, or be about to obtain, a UK degree, or the equivalent qualification gained outside the UK, in an appropriate area of medical sciences. However, the DTP also welcomes students from non-medical backgrounds, especially in areas of computing, mathematics and the physical sciences. Please check the entry requirements of the home institution for each project of interest before completing an application. Academic qualifications are considered alongside significant relevant non-academic experience.
English requirements: If English is not your first language you will need to meet the English language requirements of the university that will host your PhD by the start of the programme. This will be at least 6.5 in IELTS or an acceptable equivalent. Please refer to the relevant university for further information.
A list of all the projects available are on the website. You may apply for up to 3 projects.
Please complete the online application form by 5.00pm on 23rd November 2020. If you are shortlisted for interview, you will be notified by 18th December 2020.
