Admission to the PhD programmes is through a public selection procedure involving the evaluation of qualifications and tests for the comparative assessment of candidates. An Examining Committee set up and appointed in compliance with current regulations will carry out the procedure. Selection is intended to ascertain the qualifications, capacity and aptitudes of candidates for scientific research and their personal motivations. It is based on assessment of the CV, a research project, which may be inspired by the work of the second cycle degree thesis, and an interview. The research project, which should be based on a standard model (Declaration form), is only for selection purposes and does not limit the choice of doctoral thesis in the case of admission.
