Berlin University Alliance - Melbourne Joint Training Group

Tackle the public health challenges of today and tomorrow through our collaborative projects.

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

The Berlin University Alliance – Melbourne Joint Training Group is an international research training group established by the University of Melbourne in partnership with the Berlin University Alliance (BUA), a collective of four leading universities in Berlin: Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.

The group was formed as a part of the Berlin University Alliance’s second “Grand Challenge Initiative” (CGI), which addresses the field of Global Health as an emerging discipline.

Together, the BUA and the University of Melbourne aim to strengthen their international approach to Global Health challenges by giving joint PhD candidates the opportunity to work on a globally collaborative research project, gain international experience and insights and become part of an excellent research environment in Berlin and Melbourne.

I like this IRTG a lot! It's a pretty cool experience, and my supervisors and peers are awesome!
