UQ - Emory University Research Exchange

The University of Queensland and Emory University in Atlanta, have established a research exchange program for PhD students. As highly ranked institutions, and research partners, the exchange program aims to strengthen research linkages and provide opportunities for PhD students from each university to extend and enhance their graduate research work. 

The research exchange is designed to leverage the relationship established through the Queensland Emory  Development Alliance (QED), a partnership between UQ, Emory and QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute (QIMRB). The Alliance is developing new research collaborations that harness the skills, platforms and infrastructures of the three institutions in the areas of Cancer, Infectious Diseases and Brain Health research. 

Key program details
  • UQ PhD candidates participating in the research exchange will be enrolled at Emory University for stays of no more than 12 months. 
  • Research exchange students are not charged tuition fees, however other administrative fees may apply.
  • Exchange candidates will have supervision at the host university and, for the period of the visit, access to the 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 home institution.
