Training

DURING THE 36 MONTHS OF DOCTORATE, THE PHD STUDENT MUST FOLLOW AND VALIDATE AT LEAST 120 HOURS OF TRAINING.

 For all PhD students enrolling in their first year from 2021-2022: at least one ethics training course to be taken during the 36 months of the thesis (see the UdL training catalogue)

THESE 120 HOURS ARE DIVIDED INTO 3 TYPES OF TRAINING:

Ns hours of scientific training (with Ns >= 40h),
  • Np hours of professional training (with Np >= 20h),
  • Ng hours of general training.
Total: Ns+Np+Ng>=120 h.

These are hours of classroom training, which excludes for example the follow-up of MOOC "Massive Open Online Courses".

TEMPORARY MEASURE ON MOOCs

 
Due to the health crisis, MOOCs are exceptionally authorized until August 31, 2022.
Attention two constraints for the validation of a MOOC outside the catalog of the UdL:
  • a maximum of 20 hours is applied for the validation, that is to say that a MOOC of duration greater than 20 hours will count only for 20 hours.
  • For a MOOC to be validated by the ED, the number of hours must be certified by the organization and a training program must be attached. It is therefore imperative to check, before starting the training, that the organization will be able to provide the certificate with the number of hours followed.
     

Purpose of the training

The objective of scientific training is twofold: 
  • to acquire a synthetic vision of the scientific and technological disciplines of the EEA and more particularly of the EEA community in Lyon ;
  • to complete his/her specialized academic scientific training on a topic related to the thesis subject.
Some examples of Master level courses are given in the training (formation) section of 'documents utiles'.

The objective of the professional training is to help the future doctor to prepare his insertion in the professional world. The practical modalities are defined here.

The objective of the general training is to help the doctoral student to participate in the daily life of research within his institutions. The practical modalities are defined here.

Training is compulsory for all doctoral students. No exemption will be granted.
