Postgraduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

We have several MRC-funded studentships that we can offer to some of our eligible applicants (see MRC eligibility details). These cover the University Composition Fee at the Home fees rate and provide a small but liveable maintenance stipend (currently £16060 per annum). These funds are intended primarily for PhD applicants, but on occasion can be used to fund MPhils.

If we make you an offer of a place to complete an MPhil at the MRC CBU, we will nominate you for any Cambridge-based scholarships that we consider you to be eligible for. At the time of completing your application, please ensure that you confirm that you would like to be considered for any awards that you think you may be eligible for.
