Global Doctoral Research Network (GOLDEN) Partnerships

The University of Manchester is keen to support the development of world-class researchers by establishing dual-award PhD programmes with international partners that will provide PhD candidates with access to world-class facilities, expertise and field environments.

A dual-award programme in collaboration with an international partner will support your development of a global perspective and an international fluency that will enable future developments in your field.

GOLDEN partnerships provide a unique experience for PhD candidates wishing to include study abroad as part of their research. Receiving a dual-award from The University of Manchester and the partner institution allows you to benefit from two world-leading institutions.
