Professional project

A PhD student defines his/her professional project while preparing the doctoral dissertation. Numerous training courses are available to help doctoral students enrich, develop and valorise their skills.  

To assist PhD students in this respect, the Université de Grenoble Doctoral College also aims to provide them with better knowledge and in-depth study of the sectors open to them. With this in mind, the Doctoral College has created special training programmes (labels), targeting clearly identified employment sectors:

The preparation of the doctoral dissertation stands out as a real experience in the professional and personal development of a doctoral student.

Aware of their skills and the added value of this experience, young doctoral graduates will then be capable of entering the labor market, finding their place there and pursuing a career corresponding to their ambitions and skills. The career prospects open to them are numerous within the international socio-economic system.
