UQ - Technical University of Munich Research Exchange

The University of Queensland and Technical University of Munich, Germany, 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.

Key program details
  • UQ PhD candidates participating in the research exchange will be enrolled at TUM for stays of 3 - 12 months. 
  • Research exchange students are not charged tuition fees, however other administrative fees may apply.
    • At TUM a student union and basic semester ticket fee of currently 118,50 Euro must be paid for each semester.
  • 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.
  • 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.
