University partnerships

Collaborating on world-class research
Our partnerships with other universities and networks open up global opportunities for students and staff. Collaboration increases the quality of our research, improves teaching and learning, and sparks innovation.

Our closest strategic partnerships are dynamic and research led. They provide funding for multidisciplinary research and teaching projects that address the global challenges of the 21st century.

Likewise, our participation in international networks connects us to like-minded universities around the world and ensures that we remain at the forefront of transnational research exchanges.

Student exchange takes place with many of our partners, and in some cases we have established Super Exchange Agreements to facilitate the exchange of up to 100 students from each institution annually.
