Graduate Research Industry Partnerships (GRIPs)
GRIPs bring together graduate researchers (PhD students) and academic leaders from various fields with industry partners to explore issues of global significance and solve real-world problems. Students will benefit from professional development programs co-designed and delivered with external organisations such as government bodies, health/medical institutions and private companies, as well as expert supervision from both Monash academics and industry specialists.
Joint PhD Programs
Students in these programs undertake graduate research at both Monash University and an overseas partner university. You will receive guidance and academic support from expert researchers from both universities as well as having access to their resources and facilities. This is an excellent opportunity if you are passionate about working collaboratively and building your international network.
