Graduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

Research studentships to study for the PhD degree are awarded on a competitive basis and supported by the research councils (BBSRC, MRC), medical research charities, industrial sponsors (including AstraZeneca) and by University schemes.

In addition, the Department offers home and EU students the David James Studentship, which has recently become amalgamated with the University of Cambridge BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (BBSRC DTP) allowing applicants with a strong interest in pharmacological research to join in with this partnership for the duration of their studies.
