BHF 4 year MRes/PhD


BHF 4 year MRes/PhD

Since October 2013 WHRI has been one of nine UK centres hosting a British Heart Foundation 4 year MRes/PhD programme. For outstanding applicants this programme consists of an MRes course for the first year of study, providing students with the foundation knowledge and abilities they need to proceed to their cardiovascular PhD training. 


This MRes year is divided into three distinct sections, the first being dedicated to the teaching of essential skills followed by two laboratory-based research projects. Upon successful completion of their MRes studies, students will continue to study for a 3 year PhD working with their chosen supervisor within the William Harvey Research Institute or wider medical school. 


Students receive an award covering tuition fees and a bursary at the applicable BHF rates (currently £22278 for the first year). These studentships are open nationals of the EEA (European Economic Area) with are open nationals of the EEA (European Economic Area) with relevant connection to the EEA.  Candidates who are not EEA nationals may be eligible to apply if the individual has worked in a university (providing it is not for the sole purpose of full-time education), hospital or research institution in the UK for at least 3 years (see BHF website for more detailed information).
