A split-site PhD is defined as a PhD that leads to a University of East Anglia award and involves postgraduate researchers being fully registered as University of East Anglia students whilst spending a significant period of their research away from the University, at another approved institution, which will normally be overseas.
All split-site PhDs require a formal agreement between the University and the partner institution(s).
The Policy Document for Split-Site PhD Partnerships and forms for completion are provided below.
The Policy Document should be consulted before considering a Split-Site PhD Partnership arrangement, it explains the steps that need to be taken to seek approval for prospective partnerships.
