Joint PhD Programmes

The Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS), UoM currently offers PhD programmes jointly with following Universities, where the students carry out their research under the guidance of a team of supervisors from both universities which enable them to obtain a single PhD from both.

  • The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia
  • The University of Wollongong, Australia
  • Deakin University, Australia

The intention of these programmes is to provide opportunities for international research collaboration to UoM academic staff, and to enable UoM graduate students to experience different cultures and research experiences. FGS has taken initiatives to further consolidate their joint PhD program while increasing the number of partner universities and participating students.
