UQ-TUM Collaborative Programs for TUM students

The University of Queensland and Technical University of Munich, Germany, have established a Collaborative program for PhD students. As highly ranked institutions, and research partners, the exchange program aims to strengthen research linkages and provide opportunities for PhD students from each university to extend and enhance their graduate research work.

Key Program Details

  • Doctoral candidates participating in Collaborative programs will be enrolled at UQ for stays of 3 - 12 months. 
  • Students are not charged tuition fees, however other administrative fees may apply.
  • Candidates will have supervision at the host university and, for the period of the visit, access to the library, laboratory, and other resources comparable to locally-enrolled doctoral candidates. Joint Supervision Candidates share supervision for the entire period of their candidature and will use their time at the host university to visit their co-supervisor.
  • Candidate's progression, thesis supervision and examination will remain the principal responsibility of the home institution.
  • At the completion of the program,  candidates may request a TUM-UQ certificate confirming their participation in the program, but will not be awarded a joint/double degree or academic transcript.
