To be registered as a doctoral student, the candidate must hold a national master’s degree or another diploma conferring the degree of master, at the end of a training course establishing his/her aptitude for research.
If this diploma requirement is not met, the head of the institution may, by derogation and on the proposal of the doctoral school council, enrol students who have completed studies abroad at an equivalent level or who benefit from the validation of prior learning provided for in the education code in a doctoral programme.
Registration for a doctorate is pronounced by the head of the establishment on the proposal of the director of the doctoral school after consulting the thesis director and the director of the research unit.
It is equivalent to admission to the training provided by the doctoral school.
Registration must be renewed at the beginning of each academic year.
