The GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership is a collaboration between Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter Universities. This partnership aims to develop the next generation of medical researchers by offering almost 100 studentships over 5 years to both medical and non-medical UK and EU students (who meet the RCUK residency requirements) across three strategic research themes. We have 62 students spread across our three current cohorts: the first cohort commenced study in 2016 and our second and third cohorts started in October 2017 and 2018. We now have an additional two cohorts of up to 18 students each to recruit for October 2019 and 2020. Applications for our 2019/20 studentships have now closed!
