Research overseas

Undertaking research overseas could give you a completely fresh perspective. It could allow you to:

  • Challenge yourself in a different academic environment.
  • Gain access to specialists in your field.
  • Give your CV an international edge and increase your overseas job prospects.
  • Establish networks of professional contacts.
  • Develop cross-cultural communication skills.

Independent research projects

There may be opportunities to undertake research at our international exchange partner universities or institutions that are part of the European Consortium of Innovative Universities.

Each case is individual; speak to an adviser at Swinburne Abroad about the opportunities that may be available.

International conference presentations

This can be a great way to network internationally, learn about latest developments and promote your expertise and that of Swinburne.

Talk to your faculty or Swinburne Research about opportunities you may be interested in. Funding may be available to assist you.

Joint or double research degrees

Contact Swinburne Research for information on enrolling in a joint degree across Swinburne and an overseas university.

Cotutelle research degrees

Cotutelle is a program where research studies are supervised jointly by academics from an Australian university and an overseas university, typically in France.

Cotutelle opportunities are developed on an individual basis, between the faculty, host university and the student. If you are interested in negotiating such an opportunity, please discuss your options with your faculty.
