The University of Greenwich and Charles Darwin University


The potential for collaboration between The University of Greenwich, School of Science and Charles Darwin University, Australia was realised during a visit in September 2009 and a formal ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ between the two universities was signed in March 2010 enabling collaborative projects to move forward.

Course Exchange

It is now possible for students from The University of Greenwich to take the Ecology and Management of Tropical Forests and Savannahs module at Charles Darwin University and for students from Charles Darwin University to take the Managing Landscapes and Wildlife for Tourism unit offered by The University of Greenwich; both by distance learning.

Pharmaceutical Research

Prof. Pascale Dettwiller, Pharmacy Discipline Leader at CDU, visited the UK in December and is returning this year to develop the following ideas:

• Collaboration in postgraduate programs and students exchange
• Opportunities for experiential placements in Indigenous setting for UK students and industrial opportunities of CDU students.
• Collaboration in research formulation projects and clinical testing

There is interest in the development of further collaborations between those involved in both Sports Science and Foundation degree teaching in the two universities.

School of Australian Indigenous Knowledge Systems, Charles Darwin University

Debbie Bartlett, senior lecturer on the The University of Greenwich Environmental Conservation MSc is leading collaborations and joint research and hopes to develop joint research in the following areas:

• Participatory Methodologies: involving people in decision making about a whole range of issues including community development and pedagogy.

• Knowledge Transfer: culturally relevant and appropriate educational strategies.

• Indigenous protected areas: Comparative analysis of management strategies, consultation and development - Indigenous involvement in Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs)
