The fees are €2800 per academic year. The PhD programme lasts 3 academic years which can be spread over several calendar years.

STUDY PATH 

At the end of the first year, candidates submit an application for final approval of their research proposal to the Director of the Doctoral School. The project must be signed by the thesis supervisor. The final project will consist of an oral presentation which will be evaluated by the jury present. This exam should be passed for entry into the second year.

At the end of the second year, candidates must submit a written report on the status of their research and present it orally at the “Doctoriales” session. This exam should be passed for entry into the third year.

At the end of the third year, the Director authorizes the official submission of the thesis, after the two co-directors have drafted a report, justifying the final oral defense.

DOCTORAL TRAINING

The student must validate 60 ECTS credits (courses, seminars, participation in symposia or national or international congresses, publications in journals, study days, etc.)

THE PROGRAMME

This programme provides an opportunity to conduct major research in a stimulating environment. It prepares for a university career, but also for the practice of various functions which require an ability to independently consider complex questions requiring a broad and deep vision. Among other things, it enables students to develop an extraordinary competence to write detailed texts, clearly and methodically presenting new results.
