Joint PhD program between the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Adelaide and Medical School, Nagoya University was publicly announced in Japan.
On Friday 26 June, a press conference was held in Nagoya to announce Japan’s first joint degree program with an International University, the University of Adelaide. This announcement made the front page of the Nagoya newspaper. Notably, a former Monash University academic has been appointed by the Medical School of Nagoya University to coordinate the JDP. We will commence marketing this program in the coming months with the aim of recruiting the first student by October 2015.
In this program PhD students from Adelaide and Nagoya are accepted into candidature at both Universities. Candidates are required to spend at least twelve months at the Co-University. They are co-supervised by researchers from Nagoya and Adelaide. Joint-PhDs are prestigious and PhD students will have access to top researchers, complementary facilities and infrastructure at two high ranking research intensive Universities.
Benefits for doctoral research are
• Access to world class research training and high quality research environments
• Exposure to complementary approaches to research questions
• Acquisition of research and transferable skills
• Joint qualification opening many more doors to future research postings
