Our students talk about why they chose Imperial, and their experience as an MRC studentship holder

MultiSci DTP

The Imperial College London MRC DTP for Interdisciplinary Science in Health (MultiSci) has been established to enable graduates to undertake a 4.5 year training programme, including a research project plus training in research methods and transferable key skills, leading to the submission of a doctoral thesis and the award of a PhD.

MultiSci reflects Imperial College’s drive to constantly improve our positive research culture, with a structure that puts our students at the centre, providing them with supportive, embedded cohort mentorship, innovative career development tools developed for this programme and training, at both wider research and transferable skills levels.

Why we’d like you to apply

The vision of MultiSci is to stimulate the creation of a new generation of life-scientists equipped with the quantitative, technological, and bioscience skills required to conduct cutting edge research across the fundamental and applied medical biosciences.
