Training Environment

With dedicated support, IDTP students will be:

  • Supported by supervisors of internationally recognised research excellence and tin both the UK and Indonesia.
  • Trained through peer-to-peer learning both within cohorts and across them.
  • Participating IDTP organised conferences/seminars as well as thesis competitions which should develop and enhance their technical interdisciplinary knowledge and skills.
  • Trained on Science Communication and Public Engagement in Science.
  • Encouraged to consider ‘pathway to impact’ as core to their research projects and realise the potential economic and societal impacts of their research activities.
  • Encouraged to lead UK-Indonesia research collaborations through significant commitment from all levels at the University of Nottingham.

Gold Standard in Teaching

The University of Nottingham provides its students with teaching of the very highest quality, according to the results of the inaugural Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

The TEF panel judged that the University delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It reached the 'gold' standard — the highest quality found in the UK.

The gold award reflects a huge amount of hard work to ensure that students get the best possible experience during their time at Nottingham.


Key disciplines

Initially the IDTP will focus upon these areas in 2019:

  • Engineering
  • Health  
  • Food security
  • Energy security including renewable energy

The University of Nottingham is ranked 8th in the UK in terms of research power. More than 97% of research at the University is recognised internationally, with wide-ranging impacts. More than 80% of the University research is ranked in the highest categories (world-leading and internationally excellent).  

Network Support

To support RISTEKDIKTI’s commitment in improving the teaching and research skills among Indonesian researchers and lecturers, the IDTP cohort will join some of the well-established  Doctoral Training Centres at the University in order to fully benefit from interacting with both UK and international doctoral scholars.

The cohort will interact at informal research and team building events to enhance researcher awareness and skills development.

Professional development training and engagement with Indonesia-focused industry collaborations will also be encouraged so IDTP cohort can initiate and strengthen collaboration between the two countries.  


Dedicated Training for IDTP Cohort

IDTP offers an opportunity for Indonesian PhD scholars to undertake integrated training focusing on identified priority areas which will help them to develop the research and transferable skills they need. The strength of the training programme equips them for careers in industry, academia and research.

Nottingham has a global reputation for research excellence and two of our Doctoral Training Programmes have connections to our international campuses in China and Malaysia through research projects or international placement programmes.
