Co-Supervision and Module Exchange

One of the key benefits of the consortium is the opportunity for students to access expertise and training from across the institutions in the NWSSDTP. Students can be supervised across two institutions in the DTP, and can also attend modules (accredited or auditing) offered by the partner institutions. The policy paperwork for these arrangements can be found below.
