The French-Australian PhD Cotutelle Program (Cotutelle) is a joint PhD program between the University of Melbourne and Ecole des Hautes Eydes en Sciences Sociales Paris, which leads to a jointly-awarded PhD degree from the two institutions. The Cotutelle is a means of enhancing research collaboration between The University of Melbourne and approved French universities and providing opportunities for international study and experience for PhD candidates.
Key features of the Cotutelle include:
The prime intent of Jointly-Awarded PhD programs is that they form part of an ongoing or developing cooperative research collaboration between a department or research group in this University and one in another approved University.
The degree of Doctor of Philosophy signifies that the holder has undertaken a substantial piece of original research, which has been conducted and reported by the holder under proper academic supervision and in a research environment for a prescribed period.
The PhD thesis demonstrates authority in the candidate's field and shows evidence of command of knowledge in relevant fields. It shows that the candidate has a thorough grasp of the appropriate methodological techniques and an awareness of their limitations. The thesis also makes a distinct contribution to knowledge. Its contribution to knowledge rests on originality of approach and / or interpretation of the findings and, in some cases, the discovery of new facts. The thesis demonstrates an ability to communicate research findings effectively in the professional arena and in an international context. It is a careful, rigorous and sustained piece of work demonstrating that a research 'apprenticeship' is complete and the holder is admitted to the community of scholars in the discipline.
Students who complete the program should have a good understanding of:
The University provides a variety of opportunities in addition to the supervised research program, to facilitate a students' acquisition of these attributes.
