University of California, Berkeley Research Exchange

Please note that the agreement for this doctoral student exchange programme has expired, as of 2021, as University of California, Berkeley have de-centralised their processes for accepting visiting research students. Durham does have an institutional Memorandum of Understanding with University of California, Berkeley, and as such any doctoral students interested in visiting UCB for research purposes are invited to contact the International Office who can support making a connection to UCB's Global Office.

The University of California, Berkeley and Durham University have established an exciting new doctoral student exchange programme, allowing Durham students to spend time with research collaborators at Berkeley, and vice versa.

Both institutions believe it is important for the graduate student experience to include the stimulation of discussion, new techniques, access to documents, samples and fieldwork as well as exposure to complementary approaches to their research question that visits to other research groups can provide.

Research Exchange with Berkeley allows students to spend up to two semesters at the University of California, Berkeley as a visiting researcher.
