UK Biobank will provide a reduced access fee of £500 (plus VAT) for data-only requests from researchers who meet the following criteria:  

  • The application is submitted by a student or their supervisor for the sole purpose of performing the student’s research project (the resulting paper must be authored by the student) 
  • The application cannot be used to conduct research for any other purpose, nor can it be used for multiple student (or other) projects 
  • Any collaborators (which are permitted only at UK Biobank’s discretion) must have a clearly articulated and relevant role in the production of the research project 

Applications from low and middle income countries can receive financial support to cover the reduced application fee of £500 (plus VAT).  

UK Biobank will keep this reduced-fee regime under regular review to ensure that it is being used appropriately and fairly. 

Further information on financial support can be found here.
