The Manchester Urban Institute awarded two fully-funded studentships, starting in October 2020, as part of the University of Manchester’s and the University of Melbourne’s Global Doctoral Research Network (GOLDEN).

GOLDEN is a dual-award programme that offers candidates the opportunity to apply for a project with a strong supervisory team both in Manchester and in Melbourne. A dual award is a PhD programme which leads to separate awards from two partner institutions. PhD candidates are registered at both Manchester and Melbourne and complete all of the requirements of the PhD programme in both the home and partner university.

PhD candidates begin their PhD in Manchester and will then spend at least 12 months in Melbourne. The amount of time spent at Manchester and Melbourne will be dependent upon the project and candidates will work with their supervisory team in the first year to set out the structure of the project.
