Content of applications for admission to the doctoral programme with a foreign diploma - see list of documents and detailed instructions
 

The prospective PhD student must also send the two copies of the completed and signed PdD form to his/her thesis director. The link to the form is provided in the online application and in the email acknowledging receipt sent immediately after the confirmation by the candidate (to be printed out by him/her).

The thesis director signs and forwards the form to the Doctoral School or the Dean’s Office, who stamps and signs the document before returning it to the Admissions Office by 15 October 2019 (autumn semester 2019/2020) or 28 February 2020 (spring semester 2020). It is therefore important for the candidate to forward the PhD form to the thesis director without delay.

Candidates will be informed personally of the result of their application and of any necessary formalities required to complete their registration.
more details concerning the registration procedure
In order to confirm their registration the following documents must be provided by candidates :

For foreign diplomas : if the university diploma has not yet been obtained, a final transcript mentioning all the exams taken during the university curriculum, the final grade obtained and the specific mention that the degree has been awarded (degree awarded, graduated, degree granted…) has to be provided. If the final transcript does not include this information, an official certificate confirming the graduation has to be provided.
The degree must have been awarded and no longer be submitted to the decision of a board, a ministry or any other higher institution authorities.
