How to apply

Prospective students should apply with a prioritised list of three projects selected from the list of available projects by 9 December 2022. It is strongly suggested that students contact supervisors of projects they are interested in applying for prior to application.

We will also accept student-generated projects in the fields of inflammation and musculoskeletal diseases - although you will need to find projects supervisors.

Applications are invited from 31 Oct 2022 to 9 Dec 2022 (12.00).. Please apply through MSD DTC. Colleges currently accepting OxKen students are listed at the end of this booklet.

It is our intention to invite shortlisted students to interview on Tuesday 24 January (on Teams). Students are welcome to jointly apply for the OxCat and OxKen training programs.

If successful, students will be allocated a project on the basis of their ranking during the review process.
