Approval Procedures: Joint Supervision for Student Cohorts and Joint PhD Awards

All proposals for a CRDP involving the joint supervision of more than one student and/or the delivery of a joint or dual PhD award for one or more students, with an external partner, requires the approval of a formal institutional MOA.  As such, a staged approval process is required.

Should the arrangement involve the delivery of taught credit as part of an integrated four year PhD programme (e.g. an MRes) or the validation of research provision by an external partner without degree awarding powers, then formal validation procedures must be applied, albeit with final approval being considered by ECQS. Similarly, arrangements involving the formal supervision of PhD students from Queen’s at a non-degree awarding institution will be subject to validation.
