Postgraduate Research Academy
The WMS Postgraduate Research (PGR) Academy provides a thriving and dynamic community for our research students to train and undertake world-class biomedical research. Students benefit from cohort training events, an annual symposium to showcase their work and support for conference attendance.
If you are interested in applying for a studentship, applicants must select their project of interest and apply online. Please ensure that you specify the name of the project and supervisor within your application. Projects may not have funding available now but there are great opportunities for individual students to apply for funding through the Chancellor's International Scholarship, Warwick Collaborative Postgraduate Research Scholarship , Warwick-A*STAR Singapore programme and a number of WMS Scholarships
We welcome applicants from the UK, EU and Overseas for our programmes.
