UQ-Vienna Collaborative Program for University of Vienna students

The University of Queensland and University of Vienna, Austria, 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 the Collaborative Program will be enrolled at UQ for stays of 3 - 12 months. 
  • Research exchange students are not charged tuition fees, however other administrative fees may apply.
  • Candidates will have supervision at UQ and, for the period of the visit, access to the library, laboratory, and other resources comparable to locally-enrolled doctoral candidates.
  • Exchange candidate's progression, thesis supervision and examination will remain the principal responsibility of the home institution.
  • At the completion of the program, candidates will be provided with a joint University of Vienna-UQ certificate confirming their participation in the research exchange program, but will not be awarded a joint/double degree or academic transcript.
