Cotutelle PhD Programs [fr]
What is a “cotutelle”?
A cotutelle is a PhD program offered jointly by two higher education institutions: one in Canada, the other one in France. It allows the students to get a double/joint PhD degree delivered and recognized by both the institutions. The students enrolled in a Cotutelle PhD program get an invaluable international research experience. Their research works are conducted both in Canada and France. Joint PhD programs are an extraordinary asset for the students and for the cooperation between Canadian and French institutions.
The assets of cotutelles:
- Increased attractiveness of higher education and research institutions in the two countries;
- Improved student experience on the university, scientific, cultural and personal level for the doctoral student;
- Build closer connections between researchers, laboratories and institutions and strengthening of collaborations in the field of scientific research.
