Ecole doctorale Mathématiques, STIC


Version française

The doctoral school has many partnerships with international laboratories, which allows doctoral students to work abroad during their doctorate. This gives doctoral students the opportunity to learn about new working methods and techniques.


Co-supervision is a system that allows a doctoral student to complete his/her thesis while being registered in both a French and a foreign institution.

Mobility during the thesis for short periods

The doctoral student is registered with the French institution, which will issue the doctoral diploma, and spends one or more periods of time during the 36 months of the thesis.
