Graduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

The Unit has three MRC Studentships on offer each year and these are usually awarded in January and February.

Each studentship fully funds a Home/EU candidate for three years and includes a generous tax-free stipend, the University Composition Fee and an annual travel and training budget.

Full studentships are available to Home/EU applicants only, but in exceptional circumstances, one of the three available studentships each year can be awarded to an outstanding Overseas candidate – though the student would be expected to apply for additional funding to meet the added cost of University of Cambridge Overseas Fees.
