PolyU and the University of Surrey in the UK have forged a partnership to offer Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programmes that will allow doctoral students from various disciplines to attain a dual PhD degree from both institutions. The first programme will be launched in the research fields of hospitality and tourism, with the first intake of students expected in the 2020/21 academic year.


Under the cotutelle model, the PhD students in both universities will have the privilege of broadening their international exposure and network. They will be involved in the research projects that are supervised by their home and host universities. Details>>
