The role of doctoral schools
The doctoral schools organise training for PhD students and prepare them for the school-to-work transition.
PhD students will be required throughout their thesis to take a certain number of teaching courses offered by the doctoral schools and research laboratories.
Doctoral training is made up of different types of doctoral teaching:
- advanced scientific and technical modules in conjunction with the research project disciplines in the form of lessons, seminars, summer schools, etc.
- scientific and cultural introduction modules (opening up to other disciplines, reflections on current topics, relationships between science and society, etc.)
- professionalisation modules (knowledge of the business world and research environment, preparation for school-to-work transition)
- language and communication technique modules (English, French for non-French-speakers, scientific communication, etc.).
Every PhD student creates an individual career path based on his personal and professional plan.
