Our work to build relationships with cross-sector organisations, funding agencies and overseas universities helps Bristol’s PGR community to flourish.
Growing Bristol’s PGR community is one of the core aims of the Bristol Doctoral College. Through the work of our Global PhD Programme Manager and Industrial PhD Programme Officer, we’re creating strong connections with partners near and far — from innovative industries in the UK to China’s pre-eminent scholarship-awarding body.
Bristol-Macquarie Cotutelle programme
Our work helped to secure the University’s landmark dual doctoral agreement with Australia’s Macquarie University.
China Scholarship Council partnership
We play a key role in promoting the opportunities that are emerging from the University's productive partnership with the China Scholarship Council.
We work with external partners to engage and co-develop the most suitable, fit-for-purpose funding models across all faculties and all research degree programmes.
