The University of Melbourne and The University of Birmingham formalised a Memorandum of Understanding

The University of Birmingham and the University of Melbourne have signed an expansive new agreement to formally collaborate on research, education, and cultural engagement.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, Professor Sir David Eastwood visited the University of Melbourne as part of the Asia Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE) conference. During his stay the University of Melbourne and the University of Birmingham announced a new strategic partnership between our institutions and a Memorandum of Understanding was signed to formalise the partnership.  The agreement is centered on a $4.5M joint PhD program for up to 20 engineering researchers. It also provides for a staff mobility fund, enhanced student mobility and deeper cultural engagement, including the loan of an exhibition celebrating Raymond Priestley (the British geologist and Antarctic explorer was a Vice-Chancellor of both our institutions).
