Through the UQIDAR joint-PhD program, you can receive a scholarship to study at two world-leading, research-intensive institutions – The University of Queensland (UQ) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IITD) – on multidisciplinary projects. Upon successful completion of the program, you will be offered a jointly awarded Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) from both UQ and IITD.
Available projects are grouped within five themes:
- Healthy ageing
- Feeding the world
- Resilient environment
- Technology for tomorrow
- Transforming societies
There are two PhD pathways to consider: i-students and q-students.
Indian nationals and international applicants (with citizenship other than Australia), will be considered for admission as i-students. i-students will spend their first year of study at IITD before completing one year (or more) at UQ. They would then complete the remainder of their studies at IITD.
Australian domestic students will be considered for admission as q-students. q-students will spend their first year of study at UQ before completing one year (or more) at IITD.
Applicants must meet the following requirements for consideration for entry into the joint PhD program.
