19 September 2017
Bristol partners with leading Australian university to offer first dual doctoral award.
In a first for the University of Bristol, Vice-Chancellor Professor Hugh Brady today signed an agreement with Australia’s Macquarie University to offer a programme of Dual Doctoral Awards, providing cross-global training opportunities for postgraduate research students.
The Bristol-Macquarie Cotutelle programme will fully fund up to 25 postgraduates over five years, who will spend two years at each institution, resulting in a PhD from both partners.
Dr. Terry McMaster, Director of the Bristol Doctoral College, which conceived and co-managed the project with Macquarie, said: "The Cotutelle projects will simultaneously grow our PhD population and build research capacity, and do this in a sustainable, international and cost-efficient way. Already Macquarie and Bristol academics are co-evolving projects for joint recruitment this year.”
