Applicants should have an outstanding academic track record and expected to hold (or be about to achieve) at least a 2:1 Honours degree in a relevant subject or an equivalent degree from a recognised EU institution.

Due to the multidisciplinary training and interdisciplinary nature of some of our projects, we welcome applications from students with physical science and/or mathematical backgrounds who are interested in using their skills to tackle challenges of 21st century biomedical research, in addition to those with a bioscience background.

DTP studentships are funded for 4 years and include the following financial support:

  • A tax-free stipend of £16,000 per annum
  • Full payment of tuition fees at the Home/EU rate
  • A research training support grant (RTSG) to support your research studies (managed through the host institution)
  • Opportunity to apply to our Flexible Supplement Fund to support a variety of extra training activities

Applications are welcome from students of all nationalities (UK/EU/International) and applicants are expected to hold (or be about to achieve) a 2:1 Honours degree in a relevant subject or demonstrably equivalent experience.

Students from the EU may be eligible for Home fees if they have pre-settled (meeting residency requirements) or settled status as detailed on the Government UK website EU Settlement Scheme. It is your responsibility to ensure that Home Office (UKVI) requirements are met. If you are awarded a studentship and you have told us you have pre-settled/settled status and then cannot provide documentation to prove your status, your studentship may be withdrawn.

We particularly encourage students from groups that are currently underrepresented in postgraduate science research, including black and minority ethnic (BME) students and those from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. We offer enhanced support to individuals with primary care responsibilities or disabilities and are committed to being part of an evo lving community of practitioners who will develop and share practice to bring science and culture together, placing both firmly at the heart of what we do.
