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.

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. On the registration site you can access the programme for the day, as well as recordings from the 2021 training camp (in the resources section) and link through to NIHR funding opportunities.
