2023 Edition - PhD Forum :
How, where and why do a PhD ?

Encounter/Debate, Forum, Roundtable Guidance and integration
On  November 16, 2023
An information and discussion event on doctoral studies for all students and student engineers with a bachelor's degree or higher, in all disciplines.
Accessible worldwide: 100% online, in French and English. The best way to find out about further studies at PhD level.

Are you studying for a master's or equivalent degree? Do you want to perform research at one of the world's top-ranked universities and obtain the highest academic degree recognised worldwide? If so, do not miss out on this information and guidance event, which will cover the main issues relating to the doctoral programme and put you in touch with all the right people.

All about the doctoral programme.

What is a PhD? Why do a PhD? How can I study for a PhD in France and at UGA in particular? How do I find a topic and funding for my PhD? Who are the main actors in the doctoral programme (supervisors, laboratory, Doctoral School and College, etc.)? How can I study for a co-supervised PhD with a foreign university? What career options are available after your thesis? How are PhD students, particularly non-Grenoble and international PhD student, welcomed?
Armed with this information, you can then meet with one of the 13 doctoral schools to which you would like to apply.

Come and ask questions and gather first-hand information to give yourself every chance of success!

Accessible worldwide with live translation into English.

The interactive event is 100% remote via videoconference, so you can attend regardless of your location or nationality (50% of our PhD students are international), in French with live English translation via our interpreter.
