NIHR School for Primary Care Research

PhD studentships currently available in primary health care.

The University of Manchester is one of nine universities that form the NIHR School for Primary Care Research. Each year there are a number of PhD studentships available to students with a first degree in a discipline relevant to primary care research.

Awards cover home/EU fees and an annual tax-free stipend. Overseas students are welcome to apply but must fund the difference in fees (approximately £16,000 per annum).

Applications for 2019 PhD studentships have now closed. We will update this page when projects for 2020 become available – normally October.

For full information on the scheme and how to apply please visit the School for Primary Care Research website.

Find more information about supervisors can be found on the University's Centre for Primary Care website.

If you have a query regarding potential projects or supervisors please contact Aneez Esmail, programme lead at, or contacts listed on the NIHR SPCR website.

You are not required to submit a University of Manchester online application form at this stage. Information on the application process via NIHR SPCR is detailed on the website.
