The University of Exeter are pleased to announce that they are now accepting applications for the third round of fully-funded QUEX studentships. These prestigious studentships are generously funded with full tuition fees, stipend, a travel allowance and a research training grant. The successful students will have a supervisor from each university and will spend a significant period of time in both the UK and Australia as part of their programme.
The University of Exeter and the University of Queensland are seeking exceptional students to join a world-leading, cross-continental research team tackling major global challenges. The joint PhD programme provides a fantastic opportunity for the most talented doctoral students to work closely with world class research groups and benefit from the combined expertise and facilities offered at the two institutions.
This select group will have the chance to study in the UK and Australia, and will graduate with a double degree from the University of Exeter and the University of Queensland.
Successful applicants will have a strong academic background and track record to undertake research projects based in one of the three themes of: Physical Activity and Nutrition; Healthy Ageing; and Environmental Sustainability.
Closing date 19th May 2019.
