The Wellcome Trust/University of Cambridge 4 year PhD programme in Developmental Biology

Months of entry

October

Course content

The first year of the programme will consist of three research rotations, a year long seminar course in Developmental Biology, and training modules in key techniques. For years 2-4, the students will carry out a PhD research project in their chosen laboratory.

Department specialisms

Developmental biology. See our website for details of the approx 50 participating groups spread across 5 departments (Anatomy, Biochemistry, Genetics, Physiology and Zoology):

Information for international students

This course is open to residents of any country. There are funding schemes that would pay the additional fees for 'overseas' (home/EU students are fully funded) but we cannot guarantee that any application will be successful. See website for more details.

Fees and funding

The Wellcome Trust-funded programme will award fees to students at the 'home/EU' rate plus a generous living allowance that is considerably greater than the University's estimated maintenance costs.
