DiMeN DTP studentships are funded for 3.5 years and include the following annual package of financial support over the duration of the studentship:
- A tax-free maintenance grant set at the UK Research Council's national postgraduate rate.
- Full payment of tuition fees at the Home/EU rate.
- A research training support grant (RTSG) to support your research studies.
- Opportunity to apply to our Flexible Fund to further support your training and development needs.
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 a relevant subject for the projects you are applying to. We welcome in particular applications from students with physical science, machine learning and/or mathematical backgrounds who are interested in using their skills to address the challenges of 21st century bioscience research.
