Training courses

The doctoral school offers several types of training courses designed to deepen PhD students’ training and to help them prepare for their post-doctoral career. PhD students must take at least 100 hours of training courses during their thesis preparation. 

Field-specific training courses

Disciplinary training courses are organized by the doctoral school. These courses provide scientific instruction within the student’s research specialization. All students need do is register in the “AMETHIS” application.
