Excellent training in research methods and personal skills.

Individuals who are awarded MRC research studentships carry out a research project over three or four years, leading to a PhD.
They receive training in research methods and personal skills.
In certain circumstances, a research studentship may be linked to a Masters Studentship, so that a student may undertake a four-year research training programme.


Typical programme structure

Research students commonly work on a project within one of the research themes of the MRC CTU at UCL.

Full-time students

Normally registered for a minimum of 3 years.

Part-time students

Required to register for a minimum of 5 years, although they can submit their thesis any time after 3 years registration with the support of their supervisors and the Institute, thereby terminating their registration.
