The future of education lies in global partnership. The Alliance harnesses the collective strengths of two universities from opposite sides of the globe, creating international opportunities for all.
Our researchers build international collaborations. We tackle world-relevant challenges and transform communities with practical solutions.
Our educators share best practice and collaborate in pedagogic research to transform the student experience into a truly global education.
We aim to produce internationally skilled graduates who are ready to face the challenges of a global workplace and can excel in their chosen fields
Our Alliance is an award-winning partnership which represents an innovative and unique advancement in the higher education sector.
We invite private and public sector organisations, governments and funding bodies to access our global network.
We are always open to new ideas for collaboration with our international network of researchers and educators. Contact us to find out how and to learn more about the alliance.
Voices of the Alliance features professional and personal experiences from both Monash University and the University of Warwick and describe how the Alliance has contributed to successful collaborations and individual careers and ambitions.
The Alliance PhD travel grant has provided amazing opportunities for students to connect with academics and fellow research students across the globe. Our Joint PhD program also opens up global opportunities and builds strong networks for our students. Staff are instrumental in encouraging students to apply for these opportunities, which enhance their experiences through the development of new models of education and research collaboration.
We profile two successful PhD students and their journeys to date; Alliance Joint PhD Monash alumnus Sean Mulcahy and Gwendolene Cheve, final year PhD candidate in Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick, and recipient of the Alliance PhD travel grant in 2019.
The Alliance highlights another ground breaking research collaboration over the past 10 years and into the future - GOTO (Gravitational-wave Optical Transient Observer) The optical search for Gravitational Wave events is the next step in the evolution of Gravitational Wave astronomy.
GOTO began when the University of Warwick and Monash University wanted to address the gap between Gravitational Wave detectors and electromagnetic signals. The project was led by Professor Duncan Galloway, from the Monash University School of Physics and Astronomy and Professor Danny Steeghs of the University of Warwick, Head of the Astronomy and Astrophysics Group.
Monash is home to Australia’s largest network of RNA and mRNA researchers. As part of a dynamic team, Professor Colin Pouton, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Studies and Monash Warwick Alliance research collaborator, recently received funding through the mRNA Victoria Research Acceleration Fund. The funding will improve treatments for people with muscular dystrophy; and metabolic liver disease in infants. Professor Pouton will once again collaborate with Professor Perrier, Monash-Warwick Alliance Chair in Polymer Chemistry, on this research which seeks to improve therapeutic delivery of RNA. Joining them on the project next year will be an Alliance PhD student from Warwick, who will be working under the supervision of both professors.
Monash students can once again travel abroad, exchanging for a semester or two at the University of Warwick. Our study abroad experiences with the University of Warwick aim to produce internationally skilled graduates who are ready to face the challenges of a global Workplace. Exchange at Warwick challenges students academically, and allows them the opportunity to pursue their own research as an undergraduate. Students also gain a valuable international perspective on global challenges.
In May the Alliance brought together successful key events at both Monash and Warwick Campuses to celebrate 10 years of partnership between our two institutions. Both institutions hosted on campus events and activities to mark the 10-year anniversary of this strategic partnership. The events focused on high impact research collaborations and provided students with an opportunity to learn more about the Alliance and what it has to offer.
