Global Doctoral Research Network (GOLDEN) Partnerships

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

A GOLDEN programme, in collaboration with an international partner institution, 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. Conducting your research at The University of Manchester and the partner institution allows you to benefit from two world-leading institutions.
