UCT, Bristol in ‘profound
collaboration’
UCT has joined with the University of Bristol in the United
Kingdom to launch a novel Researchers without Borders
PhD programme that Vice-Chancellor Professor Mamokgethi
Phakeng has described as a “profound collaboration”.
The two universities have developed
a framework agreement for cotutored PhDs, providing opportunities
for students to work on research
projects that exploit the strengths and
capabilities of both institutions.
Phakeng and Professor Hugh Brady,
president of the University of Bristol,
signed the agreement in Bristol during
July, after the university conferred
an honorary doctorate on Phakeng
in recognition of her substantial
contribution to the development of
mathematics education in South Africa.
Participating PhD students will be
registered at, and have supervisors
and co-supervisors at both
universities, spending almost equal
amounts of time at each institution
during the four-year, fully-funded
scholarships.
