Guide to a Doctorate in France

The Guide to a Doctorate in France aims at constituting the best reference source to the different actors of the doctorate program. This guide presents among others the conditions, procedures, practices and advice relating to the organisation of the doctoral experience in France. This guide allows the readers to navigate between proper and improper practices regularly highlighted by both associations ANDès and CJC.

This English guide has several goals, one of which is to spread the good practices of the French doctoral process to a large audience, both European and international, including current and future non-French speakers doctoral candidates and the different related organisations and formal institutions.

This guide in English language is the translation of the French version of a good practice guide from the same authors. It was translated and published in its online version in 2022 by Spartacus IDH.
