Ph.D. students can do their doctorate degree under joint supervision by two thesis supervisors from two universities in two different countries: France and another partner country. Doctoral students alternate study periods in both universities. An agreement is drawn up to establish the framework and organisation of the collaboration. The final exam or Ph.D. viva is held in one of the two countries and the Doctorate degree award is recognised in both countries. Agreement models for joint supervision are available in the Intranet space.
