How to Apply

The 2022-23 application deadline has passed, and MRC LID is now closed. The scheme will open for applications to join the programme in September 2023 in Oct/Nov 2022.

Pre-application steps

  • Find out more about MRC LID, and whether this is the Doctoral Training Programme for you.
  • Check the value of an MRC LID studentship.
  • Ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Attend the virtual MRC LID Open Day on 15 December 2021.
    (We had originally advertised 1 December 2021 but this has been announced as a strike day, so the date has been changed.) See slides and recordings of the sessions via the link.
  • Look at the 2022-23 Research Projects on offer, and select the one most closely linked to your research interests and path.
  • Consider the most suitable studentship route for you.
  • Contact your potential project supervisor for an informal discussion about your proposed project.
  • Read through the MRC LID Application Guidance and Application FAQs.
  • Prepare the mandatory documents for your application, including 2022-23 MRC LID Application Form and 2022-23 MRC LID Equal Opportunities Form. See the guidance for further information.
