The doctoral college will allow you to register to the PHD and the mandatory doctoral training.

Registration must be done no later than October 31. The college can, however, authorise late registration, but the registration date cannot go beyond the day prior to the opening of registrations for the following academic year.

In case of registration after October 31, the doctoral training programme will be imperatively spread out over 2 academic years.


We will send a form to re-register (as well as an assimilation form) to the mailing address recorded in your file. Please make sure this address is always correct.

You must return the completed, dated and signed forms with the necessary documents to the Registration Department by October 31 at the latest. 

Your re-registration will then be validated by a files administrator from the Registration Department.
