Graduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

During the application process you will automatically be considered for the appropriate LMB funding:

  • MRC Studentship
  • LMB Cambridge Scholarship
  • César Milstein Studentship
  • Neuberger Studentship

Approximately three quarters of LMB students receive full or partial funding from the LMB, through full and fees-only MRC studentships, the LMB Cambridge Scholarship scheme and other funds administered by the LMB (all of which provide funding for three to four years).

All LMB PhD students also receive a training and conference travel allowance provided by the LMB (this is in addition to any fee and maintenance funding they may be receiving).

Applicants to the LMB PhD programme who have not already secured their own funding will automatically be considered for the appropriate LMB student funding (via the University of Cambridge Applicant Portal process) provided that they have applied by the relevant funding deadline.

Please see our funding webpage for further details.
