Strengthening Global Research Collaboration with New Partners of Dual PhD Degree Programmes

1 Aug 2023

In July 2023, PolyU signed two partnerships with Tianjin University (TJU) and East China Normal University (ECNU) to offer Dual PhD Degree Programmes starting from the academic year 2023/24. These new partnerships with globally recognised universities marked a milestone in PolyU’s research collaboration. Leveraging the institutions' academic strengths and international competitiveness, the programmes aim to cultivate talent in shared research areas such as Business, Engineering, Humanities and Science.

The Dual PhD Degree Programmes foster research collaboration, innovation, and cultural exchange between prestigious academic institutions. In an equally-split study pattern, students will conduct research at both universities and have access to co-supervision and advanced research facilities. Apart from benefiting from the academic and cultural environment at each institution, students will also gain a broader perspective on their research topics and develop transferable skills and knowledge for their future careers.

The Programme is powered by partnerships overseas and in Mainland China. Students who successfully graduated will receive two award parchments issued each by PolyU and the partner institution.
