2 Oxford-Radcliffe Studentships in Medical Sciences (Medical Sciences Division)

The fully-funded Oxford-Radcliffe Studentships are awarded as part of the Medical Sciences Graduate School annual studentship competition to outstanding candidates offered DPhil places within one of the constituent departments of the Medical Sciences Graduate School for entry in October 2017. Two studentships are available offering full funding. The studentships will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit, are restricted to programmes of study to which University College admits, and are only tenable at University College (i.e. students admitted by another college will be required to migrate to University College in order to take up the award). There is no separate application process, however to be eligible candidates must have submitted their application for graduate study in the Medical Sciences Graduate School by noon on 6 January 2017.
