The Office of Graduate Research commits to Cotutelle higher degree candidatures. The partnered arrangements offer the space and opportunities for wider research collaborations. They also provide innovative candidatures, and customized examinations. In 2020, there will be 6 oral defences and all will be conducted on-line. The first was held in March and there are a further 5 for the remainder of the year.
A public oral defence for Mr Enrique Aragon Nunez was held between Flinders University and Cadiz University on 23 June 2020. The title of the thesis was Re-connecting the Sea: The Rochelongue metals assemblage, maritime connectivity and cultural interactions in West Languedoc, France, seventh to sixth centuries BC.
Managed through Zoom, this examination included colleagues from Cadiz and Flinders, alongside Almeria University and the University of Melbourne. Enrique’s invited guests were also able to join this milestone event in his candidature.
The event ran smoothly and professionally with an outstanding result for the candidate. All the examiners confirmed the awarding of the highest possible grading for the research.
