International mobility

International mobility

The doctoral school, through its research units and institutions, has numerous partnerships with international research units. This allows PhD students to work abroad during their PhD. PhD students thus have the opportunity to learn new working methods or new techniques. The two main ways to achieve these objectives are international mobility and cotutelles.

ED MathSTIC's international mobility grants

One of the missions of doctoral schools is to foster the acquisition of a broad scientific culture including knowledge of the international research framework. ED MathSTIC attaches particular importance to the European and international openness of its PhD students. Thus, apart from the other possibilities for financing international mobility projects, the ED MathSTIC Council at its meeting on 5 April 2018 decided to allocate almost 30% of its budget to support the international mobility projects of its PhD students.

There are several other possibilities for financing international mobility grants, notably Rennes Métropole, the Brittany Region, etc. Ask your laboratory and/or the MathSTIC Doctoral School secretary of your site for more information.

International joint supervision

The cotutelle is a program allowing a PhD student to complete his thesis by being enrolled both in a French institution and in a foreign institution.
