Collaborating with other institutions
The University is keen to promote the development of international research relationships between academics.
Where appropriate these relationships can be fostered through the training and development provided to our postgraduate research students.
Many models exist for this collaboration and information can be accessed through the Senate Office.
For PGR students the following are possible:
- Hosting visits from postgraduate researchers registered for study at other institutions:
These relationships are governed through our Visiting Researcher Policy and further information is available from the Postgraduate Research Office.
- Developing Collaborative PhD arrangements:
Where a student’s research project may be best supervised with academics based at another institution, it may be possible for the University to agree to jointly award the PhD. Further details about these arrangements on the Senate Office website or by contacting Jackie McCluskey, External Academic Policy Officer (0141 330 3942).
- U21 Joint PhD Programmes:
As a member of the U21 Network of world leading research universities, the University of Glasgow has signed a memorandum of understanding to award PhD degrees jointly with 13 other member institutions on an individual basis. Jointly supervised and awarded PhDs with these U21 institutions should be subject to a signed U21 Memorandum of Agreement.
For further information contact the PGR Office.
- Encouraging students to take advantage of opportunities to undertake research furth of Glasgow:
Where a visit to another institution can have a benefit for the student’s research, the Graduate School or Higher Degrees Committee may approve a visit subject to certain conditions. Further information on the process can be found by contacting the relevant graduate school.
