Course content

The MRC Doctoral Training Partnership (MRC DTP) is seeking outstanding students with a keen interest in biomedical research to join our health faculties. The objective of our DTP is to select the best students and provide them with excellent training, tailored flexibly to their individual needs and interests. We will equip students with the intellectual and technical skills needed for the future of research, and complement this with key transferable skills.

The DTP is organised into four strategic themes. We offer fully funded studentships (including stipend, tuition fees and consumables) to start in September each year (applications open in October – November each year). The DTP offers a dual PhD structure, offering both a 0+3.5 PhD only track, and a 1+3 MRes/PhD track with three laboratory rotations.
