Annual registration


During their doctorate, a doctoral student must be registered with one of the 3 affiliated establishments of the ED EEA (ECL, INSA, UCBL) and supervised by a thesis director who must be an attached Authorized Researcher. at this establishment and at the ED EEA.

Registration is pronounced by the head of the establishment after consulting the thesis director and the director of the research laboratory and on a proposal from the director of the doctoral school. A candidate may not be proposed for registration in the event of an insufficient scientific level (a Master's degree or equivalent does not give entitlement to a doctorate). On the other hand, registration is conditional on sufficient remuneration to carry out the doctoral work.

The doctorate begins after the first registration.

During the thesis, time is counted in academic years: a student who registers for a doctorate for example in March of year N finishes his first year of thesis in August of year N and must re-register in September of year N to complete his year N / N + 1.
