How to Apply
A key feature of the partnership is its flexibility. DTP-funded students can undertake one of several different types of PhD/DPhil course on offer in any area within the remit of the Medical Research Council.
Applicant interested in applying for one of the projects advertised under the umbrella of MRC Enterprise Studentship Programme 2021 (industrial case awards) should follow the process outlined in the How to Apply section of the programme's information.
Applicants interested in applying for other projects available in the Medical Sciences Graduate School, who want to be considered for MRC-DTP funding, should apply to the Interdisciplinary Medical Research (MRC Doctoral Training Partnership) by the early January deadline. Possible supervisors can be identified through the Medical Sciences Graduate School and course websites. Candidates that apply for projects/supervisors that align with MRC research priorities, and provide training in one or more of the MRC priority skills, will be considered for Oxford-MRC DTP funding awarded annually through the Medical Sciences Graduate School Studentship Competition. As part of the assessment process, candidates will be assessed for eligibility for MRC funding. Candidates that are not eligible will be considered for funding from other sources.
