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.

Cotutelle projects such as our partnership with Macquarie University will simultaneously grow our PhD population and build research capacity in a sustainable, international and cost-efficient way.
