Halfway through the PhD2, a confirmation test is required: the accompanying committee accepts (or not) the continuation of the work.
At the end of the PhD3, it is possible to defend the dissertation if the director, as well as 2 readers designated by the Faculty, accept the work.
PHD COURSES AND TRAINING
The student must earn 60 ECTS (courses, seminars, presentations at national or international conferences, publications in journals, etc.)

This program provides an opportunity to conduct extensive research in a stimulating environment. It prepares students for a career in academia, but also for a variety of positions that require the ability to consider, independently, complex issues requiring a broad and deep vision. Among other things, it allows the student to develop an extraordinary ability to write elaborate texts that present clearly and methodically unpublished results.
