Once accepted, applicants must enroll for no more than three years as full-time students in the Doctorate programs of the U. of Chile and the U. of Nottingham, in order to obtain a PhD in Electrical Engineering granted by both institutions.

One of the main objectives is for students to carry out cutting – edge research in both universities, with a minimum of one year of permanence in each of them. For this purpose the students will be assigned a doctoral project which will be supervised jointly by academics of both universities.

In order to join this double-university degree doctoral program, applicants must pass the U. Nottingham or the U. Chile qualification examination, in addition to being subject to the review and approval of the applicant’s background by the (post)graduate committee or its equivalent in the counterpart university. In addition, to meet UK immigration requirements, students at the University of Chile must prove English proficiency before traveling to England.
