The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) covers a wide range of disciplines.
Disciplines covered by the BBSRC include:
Prospective students should usually have a first or upper second-class Honours degree. The BBSRC will also consider exceptional applicants with a second-class Honours degree who have progressed to obtain excellent grades in a Master's degree.
The BBSRC awards Doctoral Training Grants directly to universities, rather than students.
Therefore candidates should not apply to BBSRC, but rather should indicate that they wish to be considered for a BBSRC studentship either on their postgraduate application form or when contacting the School or staff about a PhD position
Further information on BBSRC Doctoral Training Grants, and the departments which currently hold funding for awards to students can be found on the BBSRC website.
