Bristol-Macquarie Cotutelle programme
Our work helped to secure the University’s landmark dual-doctoral agreement with Australia’s Macquarie University.
As part of the University's formal arrangement with Macquarie University, which was signed by the Vice-Chancellor in September 2017, 25 fully-funded dual doctorates will be offered over the next five years.
This new, collaborative ‘Bristol-Macquarie Cotutelle’ programme will offer postgraduate researchers access to state-of-the-art facilities at two universities renowned for their World-class research excellence — and enable them to receive a PhD from both bodies.
The Bristol Doctoral College, which conceived and co-managed the project with Macquarie University, will have a central role in communicating the opportunities available and co-ordinating as part of the programme and ensuring that joint recruitment to each co-supervised projects are coordinated effectively.
