NIHR Doctoral Research Training Camp - Applying for Further Funding
The doctoral training camp is a 3 day annual face to face event which provides guidance and practical experience to learn how to put together a successful application for funding.
Attend the virtual event - 5th July 2022

There will also be a guest inspirational speaker who will share their academic career journey to date, including key successes and challenges faced along the way.
