Coventry-Deakin Cotutelle PhD Opportunities

Coventry-Deakin Cotutelle PhD Opportunities

Coventry University and Deakin University (Australia) have been running a cotutelle since 2016 with projects now covering a range of areas in Health and Life Sciences, Future Cities, Materials Science, Big Data and Cyber Security.

The Deakin cotutelle can start at any of the three Coventry University entry points (September, January and May) and follows the usual application process at both Coventry and Deakin, however there is a slightly higher entry requirement for entry to this cotutelle. You can find out more about the Cotutelle application process on the main Cotutelle PhD Programmes webpage.
