How it works

  • Students are jointly supervised by a Warwick and an A*STAR supervisor.
  • Pairs of supervisors in Warwick and Singapore propose joint projects with the experimental work divided between the student's time in their Warwick lab and their Singapore lab.
  • Prospective students are encouraged to approach prospective supervisors to discuss projects.
