The Future Research Leaders Program (FRLP) was a collaborative initiative of the Go8 universities intended to provide consistent, high-quality training in key aspects of research management and research leadership in universities.
The Group of Eight Limited has managed the program since 2009 and has licensed the program (which has undergone a number of revisions) to a number of non-Go8 universities for use in their research training.
The Group of Eight (Go8) signed an MoU with the globally prestigious China Scholarship Council (CSC) on 15 April 2015, aiming to promote the two-way flow of university students and staff between Australia and China.
Group of Eight (Go8) universities are committed to the pursuit of the highest quality research, research training and teaching.
We recognise that unless research is seen publicly to be conducted in accordance with the highest standards of integrity and ethics, then the endeavour of research itself is threatened, and public confidence eroded.
Foundation programs listed in the Go8 foundation program schedule (‘the schedule’) are recognised by each of the Go8 member universities for the matriculation of students into relevant university programs, though each university will determine the academic grades that must be achieved to enter particular programs.
The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is to establish a Joint PhD Program between the Group of Eight (go8) member universities. The program seeks to provide the best possible experience for Go8 higher degree by research students and facilitate collaborative research by actively engaging in joint PhD programs with partner institutions.
The Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN) and the Group of Eight (Go8) undertook a joint trial exercise, the Excellence in Innovation for Australia (EIA) Trial, in 2012 to assess the impact of research produced by the Australian university sector.
The Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIICCSRTE) provided the Go8 Secretariat with $100,000 funding for the establishment and implementation of a new ‘Student Leadership in International Cooperation’ (SLIC) Project between the Go8 and C9.
To develop proposals and ideas for cooperation between Australian and Chinese universities with the aim of promoting opportunities for outbound student mobility from Australia
Learning to speak an additional language is increasingly important for effective participation in a globalised world.
Group of Eight universities play a vital role in the delivery and support of languages education in Australia. All 35 languages currently available at tertiary level in Australia are offered at Go8 universities.
In addition, a wide range of Languages incentives are available both for entry to and while enrolled in programs of study at Go8 universities (see link to Languages incentives PDF below).
