The doctoral space is organised into 20 Doctoral Schools.

The thesis is prepared in one of the Doctoral Schools:
  • in one of the research laboratories attached to it and with the agreement of the competent authorities
  • under the supervision and responsibility of a thesis Director who is a Professor-Researcher or Researcher authorized to conduct research at the UVSQ.
