International PhD students

Welcome to the Rennes Physical Sciences Doctoral School!

This website will eventually be available in a parallel version in English. For now, you can download the English version of the PhD guide in which you will find most of the important information.

If you want to join the School, you will need to register for a PhD thesis, which must be fully financed and take place in one of the associated research units or departments (see the main page under the menu heading 'Unités de recherche SDLM' on the right). The first step, therefore, is to contact one of these research units, a potential PhD supervisor, or the director of the Doctoral School.

During the thesis the doctoral student has to take several training modules, pass a mid-term progress review, and partipate actively in the Doctoral Students' Day.

The thesis must be completed within three years.
