Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Collaborative Studentships

The Faculty of Medicine Dentistry & Health operates a unique programme to enable collaborative 3-year PhD studentships with commercial and other external partners. The University and external partner contribute equally to the cost of the studentship. There is no deadline and the application together with the project review is straightforward and can be conducted as needed. Thus speedy student recruitment is facilitated so as to get the project started as fast as possible.
