Joint PhD-programme in Behaviour and Health

PhD Programme in Behaviour and Health

The PhD Programme in Behaviour and Health will cover a wide range of potential areas of study reflecting existing and developing research programs in the collaborating universities.

The objectives are to:

  • Provide students with a rich research environment based on access to health research facilities and projects in contemporary areas of knowledge and practice in health research; and
  • Create synergies through collaboration which will offer students opportunities not immediately available within single research environments.

The Joint PhD in Behaviour and Health is a collaboration between The Australian National University (ANU) and The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
