  • Full payment of tuition fees at the Home/EU rate.

DiMeN welcomes applications from both Home and EU students. Successful Home students will receive a full studentship. EU students will be considered for a full studentship or fees only support depending on the excellence of their qualifications and their employment/residency status (www.mrc.ac.uk/skills-careers/studentships/studentship-guidance/student-eligibility-requirements).

You must hold (or be about to obtain) a First or an Upper Second Class UK undergraduate degree or an equivalent degree from a recognised EU institution, in the biosciences or a related area.
