International study opportunities for PhD students
In 2015, the University of Adelaide and our priority partners, Nagoya University (Japan) and the University of Freiburg (Germany) signed formal agreements to offer Joint PhD programs in the area of medical and biomedical research. In these programs, PhD students are enrolled in both the University of Adelaide and the respective partner university and will be supervised by experts from each university. At PhD completion, students will receive a jointly awarded PhD degree.
Students undertaking the joint PhD program will spend most of their candidature at the University of Adelaide and at least one year under academic supervision within the School of Medicine, Nagoya University or International Spemann Graduate School of Biology and Medicine at the Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg. All instruction is undertaken in English.
What are the benefits?
- Obtain world class training and experience in quality research environments at two highly ranked universities
- Build international networks between researchers in Adelaide and Nagoya or Freiburg
- Attend Japanese or German language and culture training before departure to Japan or Germany
- Receive a Joint University PhD Degree at completion
Who is eligible?
