Join a world-leading, cross-continental research team

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the second round of fully funded QUEX studentships. These prestigious studentships are generously funded with full tuition fees, stipend, a travel allowance and a research training grant. The successful students will have a supervisor from each university and will spend a significant period of time in both the UK and Australia as part of their programme.
