Essential documents

The main information of this web site that will be useful all along your 3 year thesis are grouped together in the doctoral student's notebook.

You can use this table to maintain the inventory of the formations you have followed (PSL: use the ADUM).

Do not forget that you (and your supervisor) have signed the thesis charter of UCA or of PSL and the anti-plagiarism charter. It is worth repeating a few rules of good behavior:
  • The PhD duration is normally limited to 3 years, so provide a regular and sustained research work.
  • The supervisor must devote part of his time to supervising the thesis but the doctoral student must be "proactive", in particular taking regular appointments, respecting the schedules, respecting the dead-lines, writing down the progress of his(her) work, and so on.
  • Never plagiarize, of course.
  • Keep the ED STIC informed of your career after the thesis.

If you just begin your PhD, do not neglect the European opportunities offered by the EIT through the Doctoral Center.

In addition, keep a copy of your employment contract for reference, for example if you wish to carry out a complementary activity. Also be aware of the internal rules of your host laboratory.

Do not lose contact with the AD STIC. Never neglect to go to the information meetings of the Doctoral School.

Lastly, national associations such as the Bernard Gregory Association (ABG) or the "Association Nationale des Docteurs" (ANDès) offer many useful helps and information.
