Postgraduate Study

Course closed:

Cancer Biology (part-time) is no longer accepting new applications.

Funding Opportunities

Funding for MRes fees (staff rates) and consumables only is available from Cancer Research UK, via the CRUK Cambridge Centre. Applicants should therefore be Academic Clinical Fellows whose salaries are being paid via the NIHR (or an alternative funder).

PhD funding (covering salary, home fees and consumables) is available via the CRUK Clinical Research Training Fellow programme.

Clinical Applicants do not need to apply for funding through the University's funding system.

For non-clinical applicants fully funded studentships are available form the CRUK Cambridge centre, covering salary, consumables and home fees.

As a non-clinical applicant you must apply for funding through the University's funding system if your fee status is international.
