TUM-GS Exchange Program with University of Queensland


TUM and the University of Queensland (UQ) have established a research exchange program for doctoral candidates. As highly ranked institutions, and research partners, the exchange program aims to strengthen research linkages and provide opportunities for doctoral candidates from each university to extend and enhance their doctoral research work.

Doctoral candidates participating in the research exchange will be enrolled as non-award doctoral candidates at the University of Queensland for stays of 3- 12 months. They are not charged tuition fees.

Exchange candidates will have supervision at the UQ and, for the period of the visit, access to UQ library, laboratory, and other resources comparable to locally-enrolled doctoral candidates.

Exchange candidate's progression, thesis supervision and examination will remain the principal responsibility of the TUM supervisor and academic department.

At the completion of the exchange program, exchange candidates will be provided with a joint TUM-UQ certificate confirming their participation in the research exchange program, but will not be awarded a joint/double degree or academic transcript.
