PhD programs

Monash PhD Program (Suzhou-based) and PhD Program (JITRI-based)

The Monash PhD Program (Suzhou-based) is for those students who want to enrol through Monash University but whose primary research will be undertaken at Monash Suzhou. Student research projects typically align with the Joint Graduate School (JGS) and Joint Research Institute (JRI) research and development activities, but may also include university wide projects where appropriate.

The Monash PhD Program (JITRI-based) program is aimed at creating a talent training centre while conducting collaborative research between Monash and JITRI researchers.

SEU-Monash Joint PhD Program

The SEU-Monash Joint PhD Program typically takes between three and four years of full- time study to complete. The bulk of these studies are undertaken at the SEU-Monash campus in Suzhou, China. Students also receive the benefit of the 'Australian experience', with one year of the program offered at the Monash campus in Australia.

Students will be jointly supervised by supervisors from both universities throughout their research. Those students who successfully complete their studies in the joint program will graduate with both a Monash and SEU PhD degree.
