For the duration of the award each MRC LID Studentship will provide :

- annual stipend at the UKRI Studentship rate with London weighting +
- additional support for research and training.
The MRC LID Studentship rates are the same as the UKRI Studentship rates. All figures are in full-time equivalents (FTE). These are prorated based on registration dates and manner of study.
Applicants must possess, or intend to acquire, an undergraduate degree (or comparable credentials obtained outside the UK) in a relevant field by September 2023. Applicants should ideally have a 1st or 2.1 Honours undergraduate degree. In order to give a competitive comparison, applicants with a 2.2 undergraduate degree (or equivalent) should clearly demonstrate their relevant past experience and abilities, as well as their preparedness to do a PhD, in their application.
Applicants for +4 Studentships should preferably have, or intend to receive, a relevant Masters degree, or a combination of relevant degrees and experience demonstrating similar aptitude and accomplishment. This might involve working or interning in a related workplace. Transcripts and job history will be scrutinized.
Some projects have more detailed specifications. These are explained in the specific material about the project, which is accessible via links from the Projects List.
