Doctorate

The Doctorate training is organized in doctoral schools that drive research teams from one or more higher education institutions on diverse scientific themes.

A Doctorate is prepared within a research unit or team (UR) under the responsibility of a thesis director from a doctoral school (ED).

All Master-grade students (or an equivalent) can apply to a Doctorate.

The training lasts three years and a Doctor grade is delivered post thesis defense.

The application and subscription in a Doctorate is delivered to a Doctoral school.
