International students

Students from all over the world come to Robinson for their postgraduate study as part of our collaborative research programmes.

Postgraduate students find a warm welcome here. Some students come for two or three months to complete a practical project, while others choose to spend a year here on an exchange programme.

The Robinson Research Institute is an international team. There are 11 different nationalities represented in our team of scientists and engineers—including Korean, Russian and German—and between us we speak 9 languages.
