Our programme

Soon 1 in 10 UK adults will have diabetes. In spite of modern treatments, most of these people will suffer major cardiovascular problems, including heart attack and stroke impairing their quality of life and survival. We want to use our expertise to develop future scientists able to meet this challenge and have 4 scholarships available to commence in October 2020.


Applications are welcome from UK, EU and international students with, or expecting to obtain at least an upper 2nd class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in a relevant area which might include medical or biomedical sciences, structural biology, biochemistry, imaging, physics, chemistry mathematics or computing. Applicants must not already hold a doctoral degree. For applicants whose first language is not English, Faculty minimum English language standards (IELTS or TOEFL) must be met.


This award provides academic fees at the UK/EU rate and successful applicants will also receive a tax free stipend (Years 1 and 2 - £19,919, Year 3 - £21,542, Year 4- £23,298) subject to satisfactory academic progression. One place is available for an outstanding non UK/EU student, and there will be an annual contribution towards the international academic fee, leaving a deficit to be funded by the applicant of approximately £10,000 per annum. Laboratory costs of all students are covered by the programme.

How to apply

Applications are open until 2nd January 2020, at midnight. More detailed information about our programme and how to apply can be found on our website or by emailing us.
