Medical students using lab equipment

We have an excellent record in training postgraduate students and a commitment to training the next generation of leading scientists. We offer study opportunities to talented students, from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, who wish to pursue a career in the fields of lifecourse sciences.

Depending on the source of supported funding, we are able to support UK and EU-based students with funding from the MRC, BBSRC and other charities. We also welcome applications from excellent students of any nationality who have independent funding or who wish to compete for scholarships that they have identified.
