New Model PhD
Innovative models of PhDs at the University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham recognises that in order to enable students to fulfil their ambition of being awarded a PhD, models of study need to be as flexible as possible.
It also recognises that for some students there will be significant benefits in working with academic staff at other institutions for extended periods of time as part of their PhD.
In addition to our standard full time and part time PhDs, we therefore also offer three further models of PhD which will enable you to experience these benefits, should you wish to:
Nottingham Intercampus PhD
This model enables research students to spend up to a year at another University of Nottingham campus as part of their PhD e.g. at our campuses in China or Malaysia. For further information please contact the International Office's Study Abroad Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nottingham's International PhD is designed for cohorts of students (usually a minimum of five) to enable them to undertake research at two leading academic institutions, one of which is Nottingham. International PhD opportunities are organised between the two participating institutions prior to accepting students onto the programme and can offer a three or four year route to a PhD.
This PhD route is designed for groups of students and is therefore unsuitable for single applicants except in rare circumstances.
Universitas 21 Joint PhD Programme
This joint PhD programme, launched by the Universitas 21 network in May 2009, enables doctoral students to embark on joint degrees which will considerably enhance their research and employment opportunities on an international scale.
As with the International PhD, the agreements are made for cohorts of students (a minimum of five) and relate to specific schools within The University.
