At a steady state, the scale target for the UQIDAR is to have approximately 300 students enrolled in the joint PhD programme in the next three years. This will mean enrolling and graduating approximately 70 PhD students per year.

The UQIDAR students will spend time in both India and Australia. Students from India will typically spend three years at IIT Delhi and one year at UQ and students from Australia will spend three years at UQ and one year at IIT Delhi.
