About the strand
Developing opportunities for short-term postgraduate research visits is a vital element of our University’s strategy and aims to support students in their career while creating the university networks of the future. As part of the 2020 Bath International Funding Schemes, this strand supports doctoral mobility for both individual training needs and institutional partnership development.
This strand provides funding support for postgraduate research visits of up to 6 months.
Proposals may include incoming and outgoing visits with European or North American institution, or one of Bath’s core partner institutions, including:
- Stellenbosch University
- Monash University
- Zhejiang University (ZJU)
