Monday through Wednesday we had visitors from Austria: a group of distance PhD students from the Danube University Krems visited us at Leeds Met. Since 2005, the partnership between Danube University and Leeds Met has resulted in a number of PhD projects, supervised by Leeds Met and managed by Danube University. I myself am currently involved in the supervision of 5 PhD students from the Danube University, and they are doing a great job in their projects.
Now it was the 3rd time that a group of students started in this program, and their visit at Leeds Met served to give them the opportunity to present their project ideas to their potential supervisors, discuss the handling of the program, and get familiar with Leeds Met. Based on the topics, I will probably be involved in 3 of their PhD projects.
