The internationalisation of the doctorate
Université Paris-Saclay promotes the internationalisation of education and research, and encourages the internationalisation of its doctoral schools through a range of programmes open to all doctoral students who wish to do so. To this end, University Paris-Saclay has set up internationalisation programmes, supported by funding programmes.
Doctoral students or future doctoral students may be required to
3follow their doctorate under an international co-supervision, a co-supervision with a "European doctorate" label or an international cotutelle of doctorate with the University's support to prepare their arrival in France.
In order to develop the international dimension of doctoral schools and scientific cooperation between French and foreign research teams, and to encourage the mobility of doctoral students, Université Paris-Saclay, which is accredited to award doctorates, may enter into an agreement with one or more foreign higher education establishments, which enjoy the same prerogatives in their country, to establish an international cotutelle of doctorates.
The "European Doctorate" or "Doctor Europaeus" is a label awarded by University Paris-Saclay, which applies to the national doctoral diploma, already recognised internationally under the LMD system, and which enables the European dimension of the doctoral project to be recognised.
Within the framework of international co-supervision, the responsibility for the scientific supervision of the doctoral project of the doctoral student is shared . The proposal to share the scientific supervision of the doctoral project is subject to the decision of the President of Université Paris-Saclay, on the proposal of the director of the doctoral school.
The multi-annual research programming law (LPR) passed on 24 December 2020 created a new scheme to make it easier for foreign researchers and doctoral students to receive grants: the "research stay"
