The studentship consists of full UK/EU tuition fees and Doctoral Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£15,009 p.a. for 2019/20, updated yearly). Additional research and training funding is available over the course of the programme. This will covers costs such as courses, conferences and travel, and research consumables. Additional competitive funds are available for high-cost or exceptional training.
UK and EU applicants who have been residing in the UK since September 2016 will be eligible for a full award. More information on eligibility may be found on the DTP’s website: View Website
The DTP welcomes students from both biomedical and non-biomedical backgrounds (especially in areas of computing, mathematics and the physical sciences) and can fund additional training, including Masters, to assist discipline conversion. Applicants for a studentship must have obtained, or be about to obtain, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK in an appropriate degree subject. Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will only be considered if they also have a Master’s degree or have significant relevant non-academic experience.
