About the Award
The Exeter Collaboration for Academic Primary Care (APEx) in the University of Exeter’s Faculty of Health and Life Sciences based at the St Luke’s Campus in Exeter, is inviting applications for a National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The studentship award provides annual funding to cover Home tuition fees in full, a tax-free stipend of £17,668 (22/23 rate) per year for 3 years full-time, or pro rata for part-time study, plus a contribution towards research and training costs. Students who pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply, but should note that the award will only provide payment for part of the international tuition fee and no stipend and so they will need to have funding for the remainder of their fees from alternative sources.
Anna Adlam, Emma Cockcroft, Barney Dunn, Vicki Goodwin, Dr Tamsin Newlove-Delgado, Emma Pitchforth, Sarah Price, Samantha van Beurden, Fiona Warren and Kim Wright.
