Diamond Studentships 2018

We welcome applications from students who hold, or are on target to achieve a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in a relevant academic subject. Up to 38 studentships are available for UK and EU students for the forthcoming academic year supported by the BBSRC and the partnership (BBSRC eligibility criteria apply).

In addition to the 38 studentships offered through the main DTP programme we also recruit students to undertake projects that are co-funded with organisations within the partnership or by industrial sponsors. Details of the individual studentships that are currently open for applications are listed below.
