    Archita.The universities that immediately come in my mind are the University of Manchester and University of Sheffield. They offer PhD scholarships in Biotech. However, I am sure there are many more universities that offer Phd scholarships in this field. I will get back to you on that a.s.a.p.

    You can try for PhD in all the universites mentioned above. However normally students dont get funding when applied from india. this is because the funding agenceis may different from University. Also you ahve to apply for reaearch degree with you research proposal which should meet their expectation.
    Alternatively you can apply for one year research degree that is called MRes. ot MPhil. this will be first year of PhD. By doing this your PhD will be reduced to two years and then is easy for you to get funding
