BBSRC launches new-look PhD

Forty-four institutions across the UK have won the chance to host Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council PhD students, as part of 14 winning Doctoral Training Partnerships.

Announced on 24 January, £67 million will support 660 students over four years. The consortia approach replaces BBSRC’s previous strategy, which was to award 89 doctoral training grants to individual university departments. Now only two institutions—the universities of Oxford and Manchester—will host Doctoral Training Partnerships without forming consortia. The partnerships are designed to concentrate PhD funding on a smaller number of students and centres, as experiment funding per student increases from £1,000 to £5,000 a year.
