About us

The Australian-German College of Climate & Energy Transitions is a new International Graduate College jointly instituted by the University of Melbourne and a partnership of German universities in the Berlin-Potsdam area. The College offers PhD candidates the opportunity to pursue research in climate change and energy transitions at a world-class level, complemented by a six month exchange program to broaden their horizons and expertise at a partner institution overseas.

Applications for 2014

We have new scholarship opportunities!

The College is pleased to announce that thanks to the support of the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute, Melbourne Energy Institute and the EU Centre we can offer scholarships to four new Australian PhD students.

If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident, please apply via our application form. The closing date for this round of applications is 15 September 2014

As the closing date is approaching, if you are interested, please give us a heads up, and discuss your area of interest with potential PhD supervisors. Then submit your application as soon as possible via the below webform. It is important that you have an H1 (80%) or higher grade from your Honours or Master degree, as you will otherwise not be eligible for these scholarships.

International students may also apply for positions and are encouraged to do this through the general University of Melbourne stream (see further information here: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/scholarships/research/international/apply, where both the MIFRS and MIRS scholarships are what you are likely looking for).
