University builds PhD links with Indonesia

We have recently signed an agreement to participate in the Indonesia-UK DIKTI Scholarship Programme.

The Programme will see up to 150 students from Indonesian universities study in the UK every year over the next five years.

The majority of those studying will do so at PhD level, with a smaller number at master’s degree level.

Students will still choose their course and apply to us in the usual way, but the Programme will be administered by the UK Higher Education International Unit.

For more information on the Programme visit the UK Higher Education International Unit website.

Professor Colin Grant, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Internationalisation, said: “The DIKTI Scholarship Programme will enable us to forge links with Indonesian universities and build relationships with some of its brightest students.

“Indonesia has some excellent universities and is an increasingly important partner for the UK.

“The DIKTI scheme is part of the Indonesian government’s commitment to innovation in a country whose GDP will rank 8th in the world by 2050.”
