Dual application


Applicants are strongly recommended to apply for both this 4 year PhD programme as well as the MultiSci MRC DTP at Imperial College. The MultiSci MRC DTP provides an additional opportunity to study with us on a 1 + 3.5 year scheme. Applications should be made directly via the MultiSci DTP application process which is now open for applications (closing on 16th November 2023). Both schemes welcome applications from international candidates. If successful, international students will receive identical funding.

Applications for 2024/2025 are now open!

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, a first or upper second-class degree in a relevant subject*. Candidates with a veterinary science first degree are eligible to apply. Please note that these are non-clinical studentships, but clinically-qualified candidates are eligible to apply.
