Training Strands

The EASTBIO DTP provides students with enhanced training opportunities that will supplement the training provided to them locally. This aims to ensure that students receive training at the highest level possible so that they can optimise their time as reseach students and are equipped to compete against the best when they move into their chosen career at the end of their studies.

Our programme is made up of four Training Strands:

Strand 1: Research Skills
Strand 2: Bioscience Skills
Strand 3: Generic Skills
Strand 4: Professional Internships for PhD Students (PIPS)
In 2015-2016 we launched our new training programme, with different training requiremetns and options for each cohort. Please click on the Training Programme at to find out more.

Training information should be read in conjunction with the 2015-2016 Student Handbook at
