This program will provide an opportunity to facilitate international research for doctoral candidates, including access to the latest research equipment in two countries/institutions.
Each successful candidate will be awarded a separate degree by each university including a Doctor of Philosophy by Macquarie University.
If eligible, the PhD candidate may receive a scholarship from Macquarie University to cover tuition fees while enrolled at Macquarie University under the Macquarie University Research Excellence Scholarship (“MQRES”) Scheme. The PhD candidate will need to satisfy the eligibility criteria for the award of a scholarship. Continued award of scholarship, including any living allowance stipend, would be subject to satisfactory academic progress and governed by the scholarship’s Conditions of Award. The scholarship may also provide a stipend while the PhD candidate is located on campus at Macquarie University. The value and tenure of a scholarship will be communicated to the successful candidate in their letter of offer. The 2017 value of the stipend living allowance is $26,682 AUD (about $20,000 USD). This is paid to the eligible candidate as a tax free fortnightly amount to an Australian Bank Account.
At Macquarie University, the thesis will be submitted in English with an abstract in English. At Sharif University of Technology, the thesis will be submitted in English with an extended abstract in Persian.
